Many people wonder whether they should hire a real estate professional to assist them in buying their dream home or if they should first try to go at it on their own.  In today's market you need an experienced professional!


 You Need Guidance Through the Often Complicated Process of Buying a Home


How do you determine what you can spend on a home?  How do you get preapproved for a loan?  Where do you want to live?  What homes best meet your needs?  How do you find and tour homes of interest?  You love this home, but will it be a resale problem?  How do you establish a fair price to offer?  What steps are required to make an offer on a home?  Which inspectors can I trust?  How to handle a problem with the appraisal.  What is needed for closing?....

An experienced agent can guide you through the multitude of steps--and challenges--towards home ownership.


  You Need an Expert Guide if you are Traveling a Dangerous Path


The field of real estate is loaded with land mines.  You need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist.  Finding a home that is priced appropriately and ready for you to move in can be tricky.  An agent listens to your wants and needs, and can sift out the homes that do not fit within the parameters of your "dream home". 


  You Need a Skilled Negotiator.


In today's market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars.  Each step of the way--from the original offer, to the possible renegotiation of that offer after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal--you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes.


  Bottom Line


Famous sayings become famous becase they are true.  You get what you pay for.  Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money...not cost you money.
