If you're a buyer looking for a home, please take a few minutes to read Nina Hollander 's post. While Nina is in North Carolina, the same holds true if you're looking in Boca, Delray, Boynton Beach or Highland Beach.
Why? I've listed other reasons, like having someone on your team. The builder is not on your team, nor is the listing agent. They are under contract to collect the highest price possible for that property. If you buy directly from the builder or listing agent, they will collect a double commission, and you will have no one representing you. They are representing the seller.
Nina has some other good points which are worth taking the time to read.
Even on St. Patrick's Day, finding the right place to call home requires more than "The Luck of the Irish." It requires the skill and insight of a professional. If you're in the process of buying a home, here are four signs that tell you it's time to call in a professional to help you eliminate the frustrations, unknowns, and variables.
4 SIGNS IT'S TIME TO CALL IN A PROFESSIONAL WHEN BUYING A HOME
- You're realizing the inaccuracies of the internet
While you can view tons of listings online, not all of the information is accurate or up-to-date. You'll find outdated values, conflicting forecasts, home listings that have been sold or never on the market. With access to the Multiple Listing Service and insight on properties about to hit the market, a Realtor® can provide you the latest and most accurate data.
- You're juggling a hectic schedule
You don't need to spend time sorting through listings and contacting sellers and listing agents. Your Realtor® will do this research on your behalf to find the homes that best suit your needs and price range.
- The biggest thing you've negotiated lately was your kids' bedtime (and you lost)
As professional negotiators with years of experience, Realtors® know how to create, present and negotiate the best offer on your behalf. Don't forget, you'll be going up against another professional negotiator... the seller's agent.
- You're unfamiliar with a neighborhood
A local agent can give you the scoop about market developments and changes that you won't find online. An experienced Realtor® can analyze the context of larger forces which could impact the future values of a home.
