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.
Eden, thank you very much for all your hard work in helping us sell our home! It ended up being a longer process than planned due to other circumstances and we appreciate you stepping in and guiding us as to what to do next. You made a difficult situation much more tolerable. Your knowledge of all aspects of selling and/or buying a home are excellent. Thank you for your honesty and loyalty throughout the process. I would highly recommend you to help anyone sell or buy their home!April Chase
