Why Use A Buyer's Agent
I dislike pushy salespeople and promise I am not one. I work very hard to provide guidance, resources, superior research and the occasional hand-holding through the buying and selling process. There is no cost to have a buyer's agent, as the seller pays the fee. I do not ask my clients to sign an exclusive buyer agency contract, but prefer to work on a verbal authorization with mutual trust.
I NEVER practice "dual agency".
I am your exclusive Buyer Broker.
Buying a home is an exciting, yet sometimes daunting, experience and I understand the concerns and issues involved. I will use all of the available technology and tools to ensure you find the right home. My hard-working style, easy-going nature and extensive knowledge of the Triangle will make your move a smooth and pleasant experience.
As a Buyer's Agent my services include:
- Be the first to know! Personalized daily hotsheets of all new listings that match your specific requirements
- Strong negotiating. I do the research to get the best price for you.
- Connections to mortgage lenders, attorneys, insurance agents, home inspectors, termite inspectors, handymen, etc.
- Scheduling appointments, attending all inspections, negotiating repairs after inspections. Following all details, so you don’t have to.
- Seller pays my fee.
Why Use a REALTOR®?
All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR "®" logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.
- A REALTOR® can help you determine how much home you can afford. Often a REALTOR® can suggest ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods.
- A REALTOR®, in addition to knowing the local money market, also can tell you what personal and financial data to bring with you when you apply for a loan.
- A REALTOR® is already familiar with current real estate values, taxes, utility costs, municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of local zoning changes that could affect your decision to buy.
- A REALTOR® can usually research your housing needs in advance through a Multiple Listing Service--even if you are relocating from another city.
- A REALTOR® can show you only those homes best suited to your needs--size, style, features, location, accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping and other personal preferences.
- A REALTOR® often can suggest simple, imaginative changes that make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.
- A REALTOR® is sensitive to the importance you place on this major commitment you are about to make. Look for a real estate professional to facilitate negotiation of a win-win agreement that will satisfy both you and the seller.
