When hiring a real estate buyer’s agent, there are several important considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Experience: Look for an agent who has a track record of successfully assisting buyers in finding and purchasing properties that meet their needs and budget.
  2. Communication: Make sure the agent is responsive and easy to communicate with. You should feel comfortable discussing your needs and concerns with the agent.
  3. Local market knowledge: An agent who is familiar with the local market can provide valuable insights and information about different neighborhoods, property values, and current market trends.
  4. Negotiation skills: You want an agent who is able to effectively negotiate on your behalf to get you the best price and terms for the property you want to purchase.
  5. Representation: Consider whether the agent will represent your interests exclusively or if they also represent the seller. It’s important to have an agent who will represent your interests and protect your rights as a buyer.
  6. Cost: Make sure to understand the agent’s fee structure and any additional costs associated with using their services.
  7. Availability: Ensure that the agent is available to show you properties and assist you in your search when you need them.

By carefully considering these factors, you can find a buyer’s agent who will be a valuable partner in your home-buying journey. Then, follow thes steps:

  • Determine your budget and get pre-approved for a mortgage. We know the good lenders (and who to avoid).
  • Research neighborhoods and determine your preferred location.
  • Hire us, or search for homes on your own. Our experienced agents know the neighborhoods, the schools, and amenities. Also, the flood zones, the subdivisions with HOAs or Mello-Roos bonds to pay, etc. Pitfalls you need to know.
  • Find a home that meets your needs and make an offer. We help you negotiate, and write that offer.
  • Hire a home inspector (and other inspections as needed) to conduct a thorough inspection of the property.
  • Negotiate any necessary repairs or price adjustments.
  • Close on the sale, and move into your new home!
