Thinking about buying a new home or investment property? Whether it’s your first home or another in a long series of homes, buying a home can be a daunting process. That’s why you need a seasoned Real Estate professional on your side.
Many people believe that searching for and finding you a home is the primary job of a Buyer Agent. And with all of the online resources available today, why not just search yourself then find a discount broker to write up your offer, getting a rebate of a few thousand dollars at closing?
The truth is, searching for the home is the smallest and lowest value part of the process—which is why it is easily automated. Companies like Redfin (and some discount brokers) have gained traction by offering the impression that “search and offer” is a viable approach to making the single largest investment in your life. And even if it isn’t the largest investment, it IS the place where you will live and build memories for years to come. This isn’t the place to start cutting corners.
