Are Buyer’s Agents In It For The Money?
Well, if I answered that and told you no, would you believe me? Probably not. So, I will tell you that Yes, buyer’s agents want what comes along with a successful transaction. Steve and I want the following:
- A Happy Buyer– that’s why we work hard behind the scenes with lenders, appraisers, the listing agent, home inspectors, title companies and escrow officers ,ALL the paperwork, (and various lions and tigers and bears) to head off glitches before they get to you. We want you to have a smooth experience, one where you say…”Wow, that was easy, do I get to move now?” (Note, we would also like “Steve & Debbi, you are the Best Realtors Ever” or some such accolade, but we are totally happy with the first sentence).
- The Best Price For Your Home– That’s why Steve (he is so good at this) goes through an exhaustive process of finding the market value on the home. This not only includes the Amigos, what we call comparables, but finds additional information like what the sellers owe, how long the property has been on the market, talks with the Listing Agent about the sellers motivation, all in order to give you the suggestions of the best price for the home of your dreams. Steve takes great pride in doing this for you… he loves a win!
- The Best Home For You– As your buyer’s agent, we want you to be thoroughly in love with the home you choose. We want you to tell us your dreams and your vision of your home, and we want to help you Find that vision. We ask lots of questions, preview lots of homes to see if they fit your vision, we do lots of homework before you ever get in the car with us. We want to make sure you know everything about your home choice by having home inspections. We want to make sure you get the right Price for your new home, that you are comfortable with your loan and payments, so that when you come to the closing table, it’s an exciting day!
- And yes, we like getting paid. Who doesn’t? But, part of our payment is in you giving us referrals because you think we did a wonderful job for you. Part of our payment is when you are ready to move on, you Remember what a great job we did, and you ask us to help you sell your home and buy your new one. Part of our payment is you becoming part of our circle of friends…forever. Now, That’s incentive!
We found a little video that kinda emphasizes what we’re talking about and let’s you see that we aren’t the only ones who feel this way. We Love all our clients, we want to help them realize their dreams….and yeah…..we like to get paid. Call us now (number is right at the top!)if you are looking to buy for the first time, or if you are looking to move up or downsize!
Til later, ciao
