Benefits Of Working With A Realtor When Buying A Home

Probably the largest investment you will ever make is to purchase a home. There are many decisions to be made on things such as: cost of the home, where and how to finance the home, how to insure a clear title, etc.

REALTORSŪ are professionals who belong to the National Association Of REALTORSŪ and subscribe to its strict Code of Ethics.

When purchasing a home, here is what a REALTORŪ will do for you:

A REALTORŪ will qualify you and determine how much home you can afford. They will explain alternative financing and suggest ways to accrue the down payment.

  • A REALTORŪ will help you decide what type of home would suit your needs and make suggestions as to size, style, location, etc.
  • A REALTORŪ will preview the homes available through the Multiple Listing Service and will evaluate them for you.
  • A REALTORŪ can often suggest simple changes that may make the home more suitable for you.
  • A REALTORŪ will supply you with information on real estate taxes, costs, zoning restrictions, etc.
  • A REALTORŪ has no emotional ties to homes, can be objective about them and can point out advantages and disadvantages while answering your questions.
  • A REALTORŪ will advise you about financing, interest rates, closing costs, what personal and financial data you will need at the loan application, etc.
  • A REALTORŪ will familiarize you with the closing process.

  • There is no cost to you as a purchaser to take advantage of your REALTORSŪ knowledge and expertise.
