9 Reasons to Use A Real Estate Agent to Buy Properties.
10/7/2013 4:37 PM
What We Offer Buyers
Why Go It Alone?
Why should I hire a real estate agent? Can't I buy a home online, or contact listing agents directly?
If you've wondered why, we offer 9 reasons to use a real estate team...OURS!
1. Our team has more than 30 Years of real estate transaction experience and negotiations under our collective belts.
Are you a real estate expert? Likely no, And you certainly don't need to know everything about buying and selling condos if you work with us. We're all looking for more precious time in our lives, and working with us instead of trying to do it yourself gives you that time back. Choose someone who knows condos—and we know more about condos in the Greater Richmond area than the other guys.
2. We’re The Most Knowledgeable
Our team has more knowledge than anyone else in the area. Anyone else. We not only have intimate knowledge of Greater Richmond condos, but chances are we have been involved with condos you are interested in since they were converted from apartments or first offered for sale. We also have the only Certified Condo Specialist in Central Virginia.
3. We Pilot You to The Right Price
We don’t select prices for our buyers. However, we will help to lead you to make the right choices. We will provide market data, and want you to choose a price that’s right for you. Then based on market supply, demand and the conditions, we will work with you on a negotiation strategy.
4. We Know the Market Conditions
We know the up-to-date market conditions that govern the condo buying process. Data such as the average cost per square foot of similar condos, median and average sales prices, average days on market and ratios of list-to-sold prices, among other criteria, will have a huge bearing on what you ultimately decide to do. We will share this information with you and explain its impact.
5. We’re Connected
We have an established network with other service professionals, many of whom you will need to employ. We know which vendors have a reputation for efficiency, competency and fair pricing and can provide both a list of references and the background information you need to make a wise selection. We use Angie's List too.
6. We Have the Negotiation Skills You Need
Top producing agents like ours negotiate well because, unlike most buyers, we can remove ourselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction. It's part of our job description. Good agents are not messengers, delivering buyer's offers to sellers and vice versa, instead understand we are professionals trained to present their client's case in the best light and agree to hold client information confidential from competing interests.
7. We Shield You From Mounds of Paperwork
Today's purchase agreements run 20 pages or more. Most real estate files average paperwork in the 30 to 100 pages per transaction area. We know how to minimize these types of 'hurdles' while watching over the transaction as a whole.
8. We Act as a Buffer
Agents hand select property showings and visits based on your unique specified criteria. We protect our buyers from overly-aggressive Listing agents and Sellers.
9. We Continue to Help—Even After Closing
Even the smoothest transactions that close without complications can come back to haunt you. For example, local taxing authorities, condo associations, special assessments, mixed up invoices. We can help straighten out the confusion. Many questions can arise that were overlooked in the excitement of closing. We are ready to assist you, and that readiness doesn’t always end at closing.
We are honored to have built a base of happy, satisfied clients over the past 30 years. We have served many of the same clients, their friends and family many times, both as buyers and then as sellers. We would be happy to share some of their experiences with you and hope to count you as our client in the near future.
