What does a Buyer's Agent do?

So you're thinking about buying a home, you've been combing through properties on Zillow for months on your couch, you've crunched numbers and talked to a lender (or maybe you haven't yet), and you are wondering where to start.

A buyer’s agent is a real estate professional who is legally licensed to represent you as a buyer and your interests, as opposed to a seller’s agent who has the seller’s best interests at heart.

What does a buyer's agent do for you?

As your agent, I will negotiate throughout the entire transaction and keep you up to speed on the dates and deadlines to make sure you close on time.

Not only will I work with you to understand exactly what you are looking for in a home, I will also identify homes to show, schedule showings, plan out the best routes, drive from house to house, talk to the listing agents, and find out everything I can about the homes that we are seeing. I help schedule the inspection and negotiate any repairs or credits, as well as find specific contractors to look into a potential issue if need be. I also communicate with your lender, the appraiser, the home inspector, the other agent, the home insurance company, AND on top of it all I handle all of the paperwork (which is a ton)! ๐˜”๐˜บ ๐˜ซ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ, and that's why I love it!

Buying a home will likely be the most expensive purchase you will ever make, and the home you end up with will affect your quality of life (and that of your family) for the foreseeable future. So make sure you trust the agent you are hiring to represent you!
