As a buyer, the thought of committing yourself to such a large purchase as the cost of a home can sometimes be daunting. The good news? The seller pays our commission. Even if you decide not to use a buyer’s agent, the commission was already agreed upon between the seller and his/her agent at the time of the listing; and will be due whether or not there is a buyer’s agent. Who wins in that scenario? Only the listing agent & brokerage who are under no obligation to reduce the previously agreed commission; and in fact will now face the increased burden in keeping the transaction on track as there is no other agent to share it with.
The unfortunate result for a buyer? Being underrepresented, or not represented at all for one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Among the advantages of using a buyer’s agent? Increased information and access to new listings through the MLS; a trusted list of 3rd party service providers and skilled negotiators with years of knowledge, working to get you the best possible price and terms are just a few of the many assets you will enjoy by being represented.
We expect the unexpected
Real estate gets complicated. Our team’s combined decades in the industry span the various aspects of real estate transactions including residential, new construction, commercial, land, investment and REO. We’ve seen and done it all, and are well versed in overcoming any obstacles that occur all too frequently in the industry. Not only have we handled these on our client’s behalf, we can empathize with the anxieties and stress often associated with buying or selling property as we’ve learned valuable lessons in our own personal lives.
We’re well versed in finance
Let us recommend one of our trusted mortgage officials, or bring your own. FHA, DVA, cash, conventional, contract for deed, homebuyer assistance programs… we can present you with your options, and refer you to a trusted professional for further advice.
Keeping all aspects of the transaction on track is an essential part of our job. Our agents and administrative staff are in constant communication with other agents, loan officers, title officers, inspectors, appraisers, service providers, homeowners associations; with so many different parties involved, we take the lead in every transaction to ensure everyone is towing the line.
We’re your buffer
Anyone who needs to get to you, goes through us first! We handle scheduling showings,
presenting and negotiating contracts, reviewing inspections and appraisals, making revisions to the contract, coordinating closing, and guiding you through a successful closing.
Your best interest is our top priority
Buying or selling, we take our fiduciary duties to you seriously. If you’re selling, this means getting the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of hassle. If you’re buying, it means ensuring you’re purchasing a home priced fairly according to the market, at the best price and the best term, within budget you’re comfortable with. Either way, and in any price point, large or small, we offer every client unparallelled service.
Access to information
As a Real Estate Professional, we have access to information not generally available to the public. Realtor ® tools such as the MLS offers invaluable details about millions of properties. Our showing service provides potential buyer & agent feedback, services we subscribe to offer information so we can effectively market to potential buyers. Prelistings are marketed within our brokerage and on the multiple social media sites on which we maintain a presence so we get a peek at what’s coming on the market.
We have superhuman organizational skills
That’s essential in order to navigate through, sign, send and file the endless streams of contracts and paperwork, inspection reports, appraisals, amendments, commitments, deeds, closing packages, HUDs, association rules and regulations, approvals, leases, etc. The initial contract on a property can run upwards of 4050 pages alone.
With everything you’ve just learned about our team and the advantages we offer our customers, the only thing you have to ask yourself is; “Would I want them representing the OTHER side?”
