If you hope to Win as a Buyer,
YOU must have Agency Representation
EQUAL TO THAT OF THE SELLER!
That means having a Competent Buyers Agent
to represent you. The first thing a seller does upon
entering the market is to select an agent, and stick with them!
Buyers should do the same!
An Agents services and expertise are almost always FREE to the buyer, yet some buyers do not take advantage of this valuable resource. They choose to read all the ads, drive all the neighbourhoods, make phone calls to the SELLERS Agent, go to several lenders, and do all the leg work themselves. That's OK, but by doing so, they handicap themselves in three different ways.
Less than 5% of the available listings will be advertised in any given week. So if you are only using the newspaper and Real Estate papers in your search you are passing up 95% of the available properties.
Obviously you have internet access or you wouldn't be reading this, but when searching on the web you have to re-input your search criteria every time you log on. And it sometimes takes several weeks from the time a home is listed, before information about it will reach these publicly accessible sites. And often the best homes are Sold, before you even know about them!
We can set up a custom search to monitor the MLS computer database. It will run your search at 5:00 am every morning to identify only the kind of property that YOU are looking for, and will automatically e-mail you the Newest, Hottest Buys.
When a buyer contacts the Sellers Agent they risk tipping their hand to the person who's job is to get the highest possible price for the Seller! As YOUR Buyer's Agent we would be able to negotiate the best terms, conditions and price for you!
Every buyers financial situation and requirements will probably be different. Any good Buyers Agent will know in advance where to get the best financing options for the buyer or will be able to arrange a consultation with a Mortgage Broker, (also FREE to the buyer) who has access to dozens of sources for mortgage funds.
