When you decide to purchase a new home it would be to your benefit to find an experienced REALTOR to assist you.
You can find agents on the internet or in the yellow pages that want your business but check with friends and relatives who have recently purchased homes and see who they had represent them. Anyone who has had a great experience with an agent will be happy to refer you to them. It can make all the difference in the world to have an agent who knows the area you are searching in, the school systems, tax rates and driving times to where you will be working.
Most agents are paid by the Seller of a property, so it is unlikely that it will add any additional cost to you when buying your home.
The current market is a challenge with short sales and foreclosures to consider. An experienced Agent can tell you the ins and outs of negotiating these kinds of sales and how long it might take to purchase a home under those circumstances. Our agents at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Verani Realty have years of experience and education regarding the real estate industry.
Financing is another item you will need to consider.
The lenders have tightened up their rules for purchasing a home. Our RE/MAX office has an in-house mortgage company Wells Fargo Home Mortgage with Loan Officers to assist any buyer with loan questions. Stop by and speak with one of our agents or loan officers today. They have the experience you need!
