Why Hire a Buyer's Agent When Buying a Home? Here are the 3 Reasons! - 07/26/10 02:50 PM
Many times home buyers are excited about starting the fun process (okay, some think that it can be overwhelming and stressful, too)--of buying a home. Maybe it is their first home, a larger home or they are even thinking about building a brand new home. In any event, it is definitely an experience. I want to make sure people look at it as the major financial transaction that it is. It is a big deal! For most of us, it is the single largest financial transaction that we will ever make in our lives. It is not to be taken lightly. (6 comments)

$17,000 - Thank You, Buyer's Agent! $17,000. That's how much a client of a fellow agent in my office saved when my agent friend, working as a Buyer's Agent asked for a copy of her client's, (who were buying a home in Kansas City), pre-approval letter and Good Faith/Cost Estimate from her lender.

The buyers were already pre-approved for a loan when they met her. The agent took a copy of the Cost (3 comments)
