New homes for sale hit the market daily. As your representative, I will be in regular contact with sellers and other real estate agents to ensure you see all the newest listings right away, whether or not they're made public. Often, our clients can put in offers with little or no competition and walk away with an impressive deal on the property of their choice. I will also make sure you see only the properties that meet your needs and investment preferences, so that you don't spend time on listings that aren't of interest to you. As you compare the properties, I'll provide you with important information about the home, its neighborhood, zoning issues, utilities, and nearby plans for development.
Many real estate transactions include an extensive negotiation process, and, as your buyers agent and a Certified Negotiations Expert (CNE), it will be my job to represent you to get the property you want for the best deal possible. I'll also attend property inspections, make sure any and all agreed-on repair work is carried out, and handle paperwork related to the sale. I can also help set up the financing for your investment, and work directly with a mortgage consultant to provide you with a seamless service package.
Working with a dedicated agent on your next home purchase will save you time and add professional quality assurance during every step of the process.
