Consider hiring a professional buyer’s agent to help you
Having the right agent on your side early in the process
can give you a great advantage in buying a home. The right agent will
help you determine your ability to buy a home, help you in determining
the neighborhood and home features that are important to you, direct you
to other real estate related professionals - such as mortgage brokers,
attorneys, property inspectors - who will, with the agent you have
chosen, act as your team in working to get the best deal for you and to
protect you in the process.
Buying a home is generally the largest purchase you will
ever make. One of the biggest mistakes homebuyers make is not having the
right agent on their side, looking out for their best interests “at all
times and in every situation”. As a result many homebuyers buy the wrong
home and/or pay too much and/or end up with unexpected repairs.
