Hire an Agent
Because we are agents and believe in hiring a buyer's agent first. But you don't have to if you prefer to go direct and look through a mumbo jumbo of homes online. Mostly, an agent will save your time.
An agent can send you details directly that fit your parameters, and you won't waste time looking here and there.
Agents often know of plenty of houses that are not yet on the market.
Find a Home to Buy
Buying a home can be an overwhelming process and emotionally draining. Finding the right home is not always an easy task. We advise our buyers to look at a maximum of 7 homes at a time because any more than that will make a buyer's head spin.
Most buyers conduct a lot of research online before ever stepping foot in a home. Buyers spend an average of 6 to 8 weeks, according to the National Association of REALTORS, trying to figure out where they want to live. But once the neighborhood is selected, most buyers end up buying a home after 2 or 3 home tours.
Negotiate the Offer
Buyers sometimes make the mistake of comparing the sales price of a home to other homes they have seen. It's a mistake to compare sales pricesamong homes for sale. That's because sellers can ask any price they want. It doesn't mean the home will sell at that price.
An agent can provide comparable properties. Comparable properties are similar type of homes in the same condition and location that have sold within the past 3 months.
You may need to pay over list price in a seller's market, especially if many buyers are buying for the same inventory. Your agent can give you a reasonable price range and help to manage your expectations. A good buyer's agent knows there is always more to an offer than its price, but price is paramount.
