CONSIDERING BUYING A HOME?
I realize you have a choice when selecting an agent to help you buy your home. My proven success will help you achieve every buyer’s key objectives – obtaining a great home in a great neighborhood, that fits your needs at the best possible price, with the least amount of stress and inconvenience. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss your needs with you. Remember – The Difference is Experience.
WHY USE US?
When you use a Buyer’s Agent there is no cost to you as the buyer. We are paid a commission by the seller when the transaction is completed. Very few things in life are free – this is one!
Unlike the average agent, Nate will guide you based on the knowledge he has gained as a result of over 400 successful transactions in 22 years as a Realtor. This experience can help you avoid a very expensive mistake by choosing a well – maintained property in the right location that will not only become the perfect home but an investment for the future.
We Work For You
We will find you great properties to view, provide experienced advice about those properties, and look out for your best interest. Contacting a Listing Agent without your own representation puts you at a disadvantage in any potential negotiations with a seller.
BUYERS AGENT vs LISTING AGENT:
Understanding The Difference
A Buyer’s Agent represents the buyer and is legally bound to act in their best interest.
A Listing Agent is the agent representing the home listing and has a fiduciary duty to the home seller. Any information you provide the agent can be communicated back to the seller giving you a disadvantage unless Dual Agency is involved.
Dual Agency is when the Listing Agent has a written agreement to also represent the buyer equally in the transaction.
It is always in your best interest as a buyer to get an agent who exclusively represents you. Think about it this way: If you were getting sued, would you hire the same attorney as the person suing you? Of course you wouldn’t. You need someone who will diligently fight for your interests and rights. And the best part – it costs you nothing!
WHAT BUYERS AGENTS DO
Find The Right Property
Based on what you are looking for and what you can afford, we will schedule appointments to tour homes that fit your criteria. We will explain the pros and cons of each property so that you can make an informed decision. Experience matters here.
Negotiate The Offer
We will advise you on an appropriate price to offer and present it to the listing agent. This is where our experience negotiating deals can save you money and help you avoid pitfalls like purchasing a fixer upper that’s more trouble than it’s worth.
Recommend Other Professionals
We can recommend other professionals that we have worked successfully with in the past. These relationships can help expedite each step of the buying process leading to a smoother and successful transaction.
If the home inspector’s report or appraisal brings new issues to light, we can advise you on how to proceed, and then act as a buffer between you and the sellers or their agent. If negotiations become heated or hostile, it’s extremely helpful to have an experienced professional keeping calm and offering productive solutions.
