Buying a Home: Your Realtor Should Be Your Advocate

I recently had a caller inquiring about a property they viewed on the internet.  "The internet" is the vast space filled with....inaccuracies.

Lets face it - inaccuracy is the rule for most of the Internet.

My most common response to questions like the caller's is simply "the price is low for a reason."

Its pretty easy to discount an obviously overpriced listing.  Either it is an over-improvement for the location (bad move) or an overly optimistic hopeful seller.

As for the under-priced listing the story can be more complex or less evident.

Every seller has a thought process behind the price.

As a buyer understanding the seller's pricing strategy may not always possible.     So a buyer must approach listing by being informed, educated and inquisitive.

How is this done?   By choosing the right real estate agent to represent you during your purchase. 

Realtors who possess local knowledge, experience and is not afraid to provide realistic expectations deliver satisfied customers.

If you are considering buying a home get an advocate.... and the seller's agent is not an advocate for the buyer

I was looking at RVs over the weekend.  Not one RV salesperson came across as my advocate.  No different than going to a car lot. 

Have you ever met a car salesman who was the buyer's advocate?  

Buying a house is not the same as buying a car or an RV.  Your real estate professional should have only one goal - providing enough information to allow an educated, non-pressured decision that meets your budget and timeline.
