Congratulations on your decision to buy a home!
It’s a challenging project and there are many ways a professional can help.
Here are some of the many ways you may benefit
from working with a Realtor®
I T W O N ’ T C O S T Y O U A P E N N Y !
The Realtor® who helps you buy a home is traditionally paid by the Seller.
MANY MORE HOME CHOICES.
Your Realtor® has thousands of homes to choose from through the
Multiple Listing Service (MLS), so you’re more likely to find the home
that’s just right for you and find it quicker. In fact, a majority of the
homes for sale are listed by Realtors® and aren’t available to you
unless you are working with a Realtor.®
A NUMBER OF TRANSACTIONS “FALL OUT.”
Unfortunately, it’s true. Some transactions fall apart before closing.
An experienced Realtor® may be able to resolve problems and see your
transaction through to a successful closing.
KNOWLEDGE OF NEW HOME SUBDIVISIONS.
New home subdivisions will welcome you and your Realtor.® If you’re
interested in buying a new home, take your agent with you on your first
visit to each subdivision. Your professional Realtor® is an important
source of information who can supply background on the builder, nearby
subdivisions, and the local community.
I T ’ S A M A J O R I N V E S T M E N T.
You use a professional for your legal, financial and health needs. Why gamble on what may be your biggest investment without a professional
at your side?
H E L P W I T H F S B O ’ S .
If you consider a “For Sale By Owner,” take your Realtor® along to help negotiate the contract. The owner may not only agree to your terms, but also agree to pay the agent’s commission.
L E S S L I A B I L I T Y.
You will have more protection from legal and financial liability, especially as real estate transactions become more complicated.
T H E PAPERWORK.
Your experienced Realtor® will negotiate and prepare the purchase
contract for you and assist you throughout the escrow process.
