Advice on Buying a Home In Marietta, GA

Services for Real Estate Pros with PalmerHouse Properties Realty

Are you looking to buy a home in Marietta, GA? Buying a home is usually one of the most important purchases someone ever makes. It would only make sense to hire a licensed real estate professional to help you through the process right? Would you ever walk into a courtroom against a knowledgeable and experienced prosecutor without having your own attorney represent you?

What if you walked in and asked that opposing prosecutor beforehand to represent you also? That scenario of course sounds ludicrous but ironically it happens all the time in real estate transactions. People looking to buy a home in Marietta will time and time again attempt to take on the buying process all by themselves. Buyers fall into the trap of browsing through internet listing or driving through Marietta neighborhoods calling the agent whose name appears on that property.

While that seems like a logical thing to do, it leaves you as the buyer unrepresented in the transaction. In Georgia, the listing agent (the agent listing the home) has full fiduciary duty to the SELLER, not you! Some buyers think that working exclusively with a buyer’s agent will somehow cost them money and make the process more complicated. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Having a buyer’s agent costs you the buyer absolutely nothing.

The seller has already agreed upfront in their listing agreement to pay commission to the agent(s) involved with selling the home. Being represented in the real estate transaction should be a must for anyone looking to buy a home. So if you are looking to buy a home in Marietta or a surrounding area, then give me a call at 770-688-5448 and I would be glad to help you with your next home purchase. I am committed to working hard on your behalf and making the often times stressful process go as smoothly as possible. I look forward to helping you find that Marietta property!
