So now that you are ready to buy a house why on earth should you use a realtor? Well, watch the video below to find out! Or skip ahead and read about it!
I get it, realtors have a bad reputation and tons of people think we are under qualified and over-paid. So why would you hire one when you can just do it yourself online? Well, here are our top 5 reasons that you will want to hire us.
#1 – It’s Free
That’s right, as a buyer, you don’t have to pay me. If you could get 10 years of sales experience for free wouldn’t you want to use it? I only get paid when we successfully find and close on a house and the seller pays that fee so there is literally no cost to you for using me.
#2 – Home Tours
You need a realtor to get access to most houses. You can’t just knock on doors and expect to get a tour, you could try, but people will think you are crazy and that is not what you want when you are trying to convince someone to let you buy their home. Of course you can go to open houses, but not everyone hosts them, and some houses sell before they have had a chance to be open on the weekend. Hiring me means we can go see that house anytime that suits your schedule so you can e one of the first people in the door.
#3- Pocket Listings
Not all houses get listed on the market. We see houses all the time that are offered as office exclusives that sell before they hit the market. If I know what you are looking for I am going to be searching within my network to see what they have coming up. This can give you the upper edge if we are able to get into these homes before the reset of the public sees them. Zillow can’t offer you that.
#4- Paperwork and Contracts
I can help you understand and write a way stronger contract. Real Estate contracts are no joke, it’s a 13 page document that outlines all the important timelines, who pays for what, who gets to keep what, and when you get to move into the house. There are also over 30 addendums that could apply to your transaction. We know the paperwork and how to write things so you are getting as much as you possibly can, even in a seller’s market.
#5 – Gifts!
Lastly, you’ll get a cool present. I love giving gifts, so you’ll get something nice when you close on the house, plus a home-anniversary gift, plus a holiday gift or party, plus some random thing at some point during the year. We love our clients and believe in taking care of them before, during, and after the transaction. We won’t pick up a paycheck and then disappear on you, we like you too much!
Now you might be thinking, this all sounds great, but I don’t want to buy a house right now. Even if you aren’t quite ready, we can start narrowing down neighborhoods and keeping our eyes on good deals for you, you never know when they will come up or when you will be ready to jump in. The more we know about you, the better we can help you! If you want to set up a zoom call to just going over basic questions and criteria, we would love to chat, just send a message over!
