Often times new home buyers do not properly estimate the complexity of a home purchase. This can also be said of experienced home buyers who take on the task of buying without really looking at the task before them.
It’s important to have proper information prior to making a purchase. The information you need to buy a home needs to be accurate, thorough, and current.
As an experienced Kingfisher OK Realtor, I can tell you that having buyer representation on your side is a great strategy. A strategy that will help maximize your success when buying a home and leads to more satisfaction during and after the purchase.
Here a 4 reasons why you should work with a Realtor when buying your next home.
1) When you sign a Buyer Representation Agreement with a Realtor he or she is bound to you both in a fiduciary manner and a professional manner. The Realtor is there to represent you in the transaction and to look out after your best interest. There is no conflict as your Realtor does not represent the seller. He or she is on your side and their loyalty is to you.
2) A Realtor is more able to align your needs with what is available in the marketplace. A Realtor has access to the MLS and to a network of other professionals that can help in your home search as well as the entire closing process.
3) A Realtor can help you determine if the price being asked is fair and will help you in the negotiations. The last thing you want to do is overpay for your new house. A Realtor has the information available including previous sales to help you arrive at a reasonable price.
4) Buying a home is a very personal and emotional experience. Having a Realtor work for you who is detached emotionally will help you in making decisions that are logical and not based on emotions.
