We work with a lot of first time home buyers, second time home buyers, and on and on...
Our experience has been that during every transaction there are other people involved in the decisions.
Parents. Friends. Co-workers. Cousin Sally.
You know the drill.
Sometimes having another set of eyes can help the transaction. Maybe Uncle Paul who runs a construction business can see a few things we can't during the showing. (We always recommend a home inspection even if Uncle Paul can point out a few things.)
Ultimately it's our buyer's decision on what they do and we understand our buyers needing emotional support from said family and friends.
That said... trust your Realtor. Trust that we live and breathe this all day every day and only have your best intentions in mind.
If we see something that pops out at us (backs up to the interstate/overpricing/easy to see defects) we're going to point that out.
When it comes to the details on pricing and knowing the current real estate market in Fort Wayne, we're the people you need to be listening to.
When we show a home to one of our buyers we do our homework. We know before we walk in if it's over priced. We know the area and can almost always guess what offer is going to be accepted.
Then we walk you through the entire process. We're hand holders. We try our best to anticipate and eliminate any problems that we can.
Constant contact is a biggie for us too. Odds are you'll hear from us almost daily, even if it's a quick text with an update.
The lenders that we refer people to are the same way. Hand holders.
Listen to the pros when it comes to buying a house.
Your questions are always welcome, just remember who you are asking those questions to.
