It’s important that you choose an experienced agent who is there for you. Your agent should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.
First, find an agent who represents you and not the seller. This is beneficial during the negotiation process. If you are working with a buyer’s agent, he or she is required not to tell the seller of your top choice. In addition, he or she is also focused on getting you the lowest asking price.
Also, when you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties. Not only are they plugged into their Multiple Listing Service, but they are also actively finding homes that are listed as FSBO, or homes that sellers are thinking about listing.
Lisa did a great job listing, marketing, and closing our house sale. The property in the country required patience, flexibility, and several market analysis to price it right and Lisa collaborated with us all along, including expedited negotiation to get agreement on minor inspection issues. Do not get misled by her apparent small operation but appreciate that she is on the road most of the time where the business takes placegonzabelardo
