Let the Buyer Beware...

Real Estate Sales Representative with for real estate results in the Tri-Cities.

With a savvy swagger and access to a wealth of information, it’s clear that today’s consumer is quite capable when it comes to buying a home. The irony is that smart people are still buying homes and having problems. 

It’s commonplace to purchase a home and then discover that there’s something wrong with it after the fact. Just ask one of the 58 Olympic Village owners in Vancouver who have filed a lawsuit against the Developers.

The Internet can be a great way to research but it can also be a source of misleading information, like listing inconsistencies, and incomplete information.

Fortunately for future homeowners, there’s a better way to approach real estate than relying on the Internet.

It was Benjamin Franklin who said,  “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

Too many entering the real estate market say they are anxious, and yet they have the ability to manage and control the outcome; it’s in their hands.  Confidence is gained by managing risks and in real estate that is achieved by performing due diligence.

Risk goes hand in hand with confidence, so I say to those who don’t take steps to protect their interests,  “Let the buyer beware”. Caveat Emptor

This week’s Buyer Beware seminar on April 12th (this Tuesday) is free, and if you’re unable to attend yourself please consider forwarding this post to anyone in your network you care for who you feel might be interested. Thank you.

For the first time we’re going to have a panel for the second half of the seminar consisting of a Certified Financial Planner, a Mortgage Broker, a Lawyer and yours truly. When was the last time you had the chance to get so much free advice? 

If you’d like to register please call Grace at 604-202-5775, and I look forward to seeing you there.

There is a lot of information available to buyers but they should work with a good buyer's agent.
