This question – why should I hire a buyer’s agent? – comes up more and more of home buyers, who consider hiring a Lakeland buyer’s agent. There are Lakeland, Florida home buyers, who say the following:
- I can search for homes on the internet, so why should I hire an agent.
- I can get home values on sites such as Zillow and Trulia, no need for a real estate agent.
- I can save thousands of dollars in commission, no buyer’s agent needed.
As an experienced Lakeland buyer’s agent I can do this and so much more:
I can search the Multiple Listings Database (MLS) and instantly sent you a notification of homes that came on the market, when price reductions occur, keep an eye on “For Sale By Owners”, expose you to more choices of homes other buyer’s agent may not be aware of, search the history of a home so you don’t have to waste hours of your valuable time.
Prepare a comparable market analysis (CMA) just for you, the home buyer, on properties of your interest with up-to-date information that you can’t get from Zillow or Trulia.
Complete the real estate sales contract and help with the negotiations based on market conditions, property conditions, any information I may find about the seller’s situation. Oversee deadlines and follow up with inspections, financing, title requirements, which can save you thousands of dollars.
You don’t want to make the same mistake like the seller in this news report, who was not represented by an experienced buyer’s agent.
