5 TOP REASONS TO USE AN AGENT WHEN BUYING

Real estate is a big deal. For most Americans, a home is the most expensive purchase they’ll make in their lifetime. It’s a serious transaction with significant financial and emotional ramifications for the parties involved, and having proper representation is critical. 1. Fiduciary responsibility. When you work with a STEPS Agent their fiduciary responsibility is to you. That means you have an expert who is looking out for your best financial interests, an expert who’s contractually bound to do everything in their power to protect you. That’s big — the value of that commitment cannot be overstated. 2. Complex, ever-changing real estate regulations.

Buying or selling a home is not like purchasing a plane ticket. Every home is different, and laws change every year and vary from state to state. Generally speaking, people purchase a new home every 7-10 years, and a lot can — and usually does — change between transactions. STEPS Agents are immersed in real estate, and they must stay current with all the updates in regulations, laws, contracts and practices. 3. Help finding the right home, beyond square footage and baths. Browsing online is a terrific way to start a home search — in fact, almost 90 percent of people start their home search online. But when it’s time to buy, knowing all the pros and cons of a property can help you make the right decision.

STEPS Agents live and breathe real estate, and they can share information about a home that you wouldn’t otherwise know. Your STEPS Agent can go beyond the aesthetics and tell you important details about homes you’re considering. 4. Offer Price and Terms. There are lots of websites where you can view price estimates for a home before you make an offer, but you take a risk using them. In some markets, online estimates can be off by as much as 35 percent, and they often rely on tax records and data that can be as old as 6-12 months.

STEPS Agents know the local market, have access to the freshest sale data, and can help you offer in line with the market to maximize your ability to get the home at the best price. 5. Contracts and negotiations. Finding the right home is the fun part. Then the real work begins.: Today’s contracts can be 50 pages long — not counting addendums and riders. STEPS Agents can help you navigate these complex documents and craft an attractive offer that makes sense for you. Plus, when it comes to negotiation, STEPS Agent is your advocate and can bring an objective voice to a very subjective situation. There are many other aspects of buying a home that can be tough to handle and work through. This is a prime reason why you need a qualified, experienced STEPS Agent!
