Most people begin their NC Triangle home search by driving by homes they like, often calling the phone number on that yard sign out front.

That’s is a BIG mistake!  Why? Because that agent represents the seller—not you.

Buyer’s Agent Services

Most Buyers are hesitant to call a Buyer’s Agent or a Buyer’s Broker because right now, they are “just looking.”  That’s okay. In fact, the best time to employ a Buyer’s Agent is when you’re just looking.

Instead of calling 5 different Listing (or Seller’s) Agents, you should have one Buyer’s Agent to call anytime.  Anytime you want to see a home or anytime you have a question.

This way, you develop a relationship with that agent which encourages a sense of trust. Wouldn’t you rather be working with someone you trust than someone you you just met from a sign?  A Buyer’s Agent can schedule a day of private tours just for you.

When it is time to make an offer, your Buyer’s Agent can assist in determining market value, making a fair offer, negotiating the contract, scheduling inspections, negotiating repairs and much more.

The best part is that a Buyer’s Agent is free to the Buyer.  The Seller pays the commission.

A Buyer’s Agent will…

  • Analyze your wants & needs, and will prepare a short-list of market-ready homes for your viewing.
  • Arrange a financial pre-qualification with a local lender so that your offer is as strong as possible.
  • Schedule property showings at your convenience.
  • Assist in preparing the Offer to Purchase and Contract.
  • Negotiate the terms of your Offer.
  • Review and interpret property disclosures, inspections and all those other nasty little things.
  • Offer advice and guidance throughout the entire process from contract to closing.
  • Follow-up after the sale to ensure 100% satisfaction!
