The Best Protection You Can Get When Buying a Home is Choosing a Good Realtor

As you know, buying a East Bay area home is a big investment.

You’ve been searching online for properties, sizing up the market and making important decisions about what is right for you. Checking out the latest homes on Zillow or may be a daily habit by now and you’ve probably seen a lot of properties come and go since you started searching.

Now You’re Ready to Get Serious

That’s when it’s critical to work with the right real estate agent.  So how do you know if you’ve found the right one?

You want someone who listens carefully, who makes sure you understand all your options, who is knowledgeable, thorough, strategic, responsive, diligent, and who puts your interests first, every step of the way. You also want someone who is a straight shooter – who will share their professional opinion, both pros and cons, of any property that catches your eye. Finally, you want someone who is a trusted guide AND someone who you genuinely enjoy working with.

What are the pitfalls of working with a less qualified agent? The wrong buyer’s agent could cause you to…

  • Lose the home you really want to another buyer because of an ill-prepared offer
  • Pay too much for a house based on emotion instead of the facts
  • Waste time on homes that don’t meet your budget or needs
  • Miss out on opportunities flying below the radar
  • Overlook issues with a house that could cost you thousands of dollars
  • … and more
