Our job is to protect our clients interests. As you can tell from my last posts we sometimes go thru some trials and tribulations. As a real estate professional I want you get a home that you want. If you don't know me you will realize that I'm not one of those pushy real estate people. I'll continue to take you out to look at houses so long as you are a serious buyer. I sit back and let people make their own decisions about a home. I don't walk thru a house and point out how great it is.
I know buying real estate is sometimes just emotional. Home buyers "know" when the walk into the house that "it is it". Many times it isn't about money, about the layout, or the square footage. It's the feeling of "being their home". It is a feeling that the home buyer gets when they find the home they want.
Sometimes those dreams or wants are crushed by other people around the home buyers. Sometimes those dreams need to be crushed because the home has defects or the buyers didn't realize the potential issues. Many times I have been glad for family members pointing out potential problems.
As a real estate agent I can point out lots of problems on any home. But that isn't my job to crush my buyers dreams. You see no home is perfect and home buyers have to make the decision on what defects or minor issues they are willing to accept.
It may be an odd layout, the house may be on a busy street, a room may be too small, the garage may not be big enough, or the house may need work. Every buyer has different priorities and as an agent I don't influence those decisions. If I am asked my opinion I give it. It there is a major defect or problem that I notice then I talk about it. I'm not a house inspector but I am fairly decent as spotting major block basement problems. I'm fairly decent about estimating costs or calling contractors to find out the costs for clients. I can point clients to the right resources to get their questions answered.
As a real estate agent I want to be able to visit my clients years from now. I want my clients to be happy in the home they buy. It's my job to help my clients get the best deal possible, get the home inspected, and to close the deal. We sometimes have to solve the issues that pop up from mortgage companies, and the negotiations.
I myself believe you don't have to sell houses. People sell themselves the house once they find the right one.
