Why Do Home Buyers Need a Real Estate Agent?

Having a qualified real estate agent help you navigate the home buying process is essential in today’s highly competitive market. Why go it alone when you can have a seasoned professional help you land the right property at the best price? Oh, and the property owner pays the Buyer’s Agent commission, so you don’t have to.

Here’s how a Buyer’s Agent gives you the edge you need to succeed. They:

  • Locate the best properties for you — By using public and private databases as well as their networks, your agent has access to listings for sale and often before they ever hit the open market.
  • Determine fair market values — They ensure that you get the best deal and don’t overpay. Find out the value down to the $ per square foot.
  • Negotiate and prepare contracts — They make sure the paperwork lines up to make sure your interests are protected. The average D.C. purchase contract is over 40 pages and getting it right is critical. 
  • Connect you to highly rated professionals — When you need a lender, home inspector, contractor or title company, they connect you to pros worthy of your trust.

With interest rates at historic lows, the DMV is a competitive market for buyers, and you really need an agent on your side. Our Realtors have constant access to video conferencing and are always available by phone and email for our clients.
