In this modern age of digital transparency it is very tempting for a buyer to attempt to conduct a real estate search on their own.
Buying a home is a very complicated procedure. Just as you wouldn’t dream of treating your own medical problems—or repairing your car—you don’t want to be on your own when you search for a new home.
A buyer broker will learn your preferences, educate you on the market, and introduce you to a support team of lawyers, architects, and mortgage brokers.
As your buyer broker we will
- tell you what’s available in a given neighborhood
- introduce you to other neighborhoods
- recommend different kinds of properties
- help you to identify the best property
- guide you in negotiating a successful bid and
- coach you every step of the way, from pre-approval to closing.
A good buyer broker is a licensed professional who will be able to introduce you to other professionals, including:
- a mortgage broker or banker who is familiar with the kind of property you have chosen
- a real estate lawyer who specializes in co-ops and condos
- an architect who is experienced at renovation
- a lighting designer who understands energy costs
The buyer broker is your agent, your asset, and your best weapon in successfully locating, negotiating, and closing on your new home.
