t Working with a Realtor® will ensure you that you are working with a real estate agent that is held to high standards of ethics and will find you a property that best fits your criteria.
r I will represent the buyer at no cost to them. I am paid by the seller on a resale transaction and by the developer on a new home community transaction. If you buy a resale property with me, I will help you negotiate the best price, saving you money. If you buy in a new home community, the price is the same whether you are represented by me or not, but I am aware of the potential incentives that may be available that builders don't always tell you about, and I will help you find the best location within the community.
If you do not use a buyers agent to represent you, you have no one else looking out for your best interest in the transaction. Listing agents work for the seller to get the highest price possible on a resale, and a new home community site sale representative works for the best interest of the developers only.
Let me help you understand the market price before making an offer on a resale so you don't over pay. Know your rights as a buyer. Know about real estate taxes, HOA fees, closing cost, home inspections, mortgages, and appreciation potential. Know that there are other available properties in the area that best fit your criteria before you make an offer on a certain property.
