I have taken the extra step of obtaining an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) desigantion. That means more verified education coupled with my 17 years experience to offer you the best representation. I've got your back!
1. In real estate transactions, having representation (either as a buyer or seller) means that an industry professional is obligated to protect and promote your interests, including keeping certain information confidential and sharing information with you that might benefit your position.
2. If you aren’t already familiar with complex real estate contracts, disclosure forms and mortgage applications, these documents can be confusing and daunting. Most buyers genuinely appreciate having a knowledgeable resource to answer their questions.
3. You’ll be working with an up-to-date expert who is current on the latest issues and trends in buyer representation.
4. It’s impossible for an inexperienced real estate agent to have an ABR designation as proof of transactions is a requirement.
5. Deciding on an offer price for a house is tricky business, requiring careful analysis of other comparable homes for sale, recently sold homes, and other market factors. Plus, your offer price is just one facet of your negotiating strategy. I can advise you on every negotiating detail, including counseling you on the pluses and minuses of including various contingencies.
6. You can get a higher level of service without paying more. In the vast majority of circumstances, listing agreements are structured so that a buyer’s agent’s commission is paid out of the seller’s proceeds. In the rare instance where this is not the case, you still have options. I can explain those options before you begin your home search, helping you make informed decisions if you encounter such a scenario.
