Costly Mistake #2

Not Hiring a Buyer's Agent

Mistake #1
Buying property is a complex and stressful task.  In fact, it is probably the single biggest investment you will make in your lifetime.  At the same time, real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated.  New technology, laws, procedures, and competition from other buyers require buyer's agents to perform at an ever-increasing level of competence and professionalism.  For many home buyers, the process can turn into an overwhelming and stressful ordeal.  In addition, making wrong decisions can end up costing you thousands of dollars.  But it doesn't have to be this way!
 
Work with a buyer's agent who has a keen understanding of the real estate business and who is on your side.  Buyer's agents have a fiduciary duty to their clients.  That means that your buyer's agent is loyal to only you and is obligated to look out for your best interests.  A buyer's agent can help you find the best home, the best lender, and the best home inspector.  Best of all, in most cases, the buyer's agent is paid out of the seller's commission, even though he/she works for you.
 
Trying to buy a home without an agent can, more often than not, be a costly mistake.
