Thinking of Buying... Here's the First Step...
My #1 counsel is to interview and hire a REALTOR to represent you and walk with you throughout the entire real estate transaction. You may think this is self serving advice, coming from a REALTOR, but it's not. Whether you hire me or someone else, I absolutely believe that it is in your best interest to hire a full service, professional agent - someone who is legally and ethically required to look out for your best interest.
For a lot of reasons, buying and selling real estate in California has become a very involved, and, often, complicated endeavor. Required disclosures, timetables, inspections, financing, escrow, title, etc....all can be overwhelming. I absolutely believe that hiring a good agent will save most buyers time, money, and headache.
Here's What I suggest:
- Interview several agents. Make sure that they are knowledgeable and available to you. Also, make sure you feel comfortable with them personally and professionally.
- After you've interviewed several agents and found one you can work with, commit to working with that one agent. Communicate your needs, wants, and expectations...let that agent go to work for you.
