4. Get Representation
There is so much more to hiring a buyer’s agent than getting access to South Florida houses and condos, than a chauffeur to show you around. While it is possible to buy a home without an agent, the experience often proves to be more challenging than many expect. We’ve listed our top 3 reasons below:
1. Representation: Unless you are buying a property that is for sale by owner, the seller has professional representation on their side. By negotiating directly with the sellers agent you are putting yourself at a severe disadvantage since their agent is legally bound to share everything you tell them in order to get the best deal for their client. You wouldn’t go into a courtroom without a lawyer, so why risk the biggest purchase in your life in buying a home without representation.
2. Data Analysis: The only way to determine the correct price of a home is to analyze the prices at which similar homes recently sold in the same neighborhood. While there are a variety of online resources for finding homes for sale, there are very few consumer websites that provide home sales data in the South Florida-area. Our website is one of the few real estate sites that provides home sale prices to our customers and clients. This information is available to REALTORS through their membership with the local Multiple Listing Service and to our customers and clients on brondorealty.com. While many consumers look to Zillow for this information in other areas, Zillow does not have the actual prices of homes that sold in the South Florida-area, so in Florida their Zestimates are rarely accurate.
3. Experience: When you have an experienced Buyer’s Agent working for you their primary job is to keep you from making a mistake. The knowledge they gain from working with so many clients throughout their career is invaluable when it comes to helping you pick the right Florida area house, on the right street, in the right neighborhood. This experience also comes into play when they are negotiating on your behalf as they often have intimate knowledge of the pros and cons of similar homes that recently sold. Once you are under contract to purchase a home, your buyer’s agent will help you locate a great inspector, negotiate repairs with the seller, get estimates from trustworthy contractors and obtain financing from the most reputable lenders.When you’re ready to get professional representation, fill out the form below to be hand matched with the perfect agent, or you can browse our team and choose for yourself.
5. Find the Best Investment
Once you have been pre-qualified by a lender, narrowed down your home search and retained a buyer’s agent it’s time to get in the car and go look at some homes. For most people, this is the fun part, and it should be. Buying a home is most important purchase most people make in their lifetime. Having an experienced professional in your corner will save you time, give you peace of mind and very likely save you a great deal of money.
6. Find the Best Investment
