An experienced real estate agent can make your homebuying process a smooth one by helping you:
Find the right house:
Your real estate agent knows home prices, schools, public safety and other details in the neighborhoods you're looking to buy. Your agent listens to your needs and previews available homes so you visit the ones that are the best fit for you.
Negotiate a fair price:
Your real estate agent can compare the home you want to other recent sales in the area to make sure you’re getting a good price. They’ll help you prepare your offer, submit it to the seller’s agent and negotiate a fair price for your new home.
Talk to a Home Lending Advisor:
Your real estate agent can recommend a lender, help you through prequalifying for a mortgage and assist you in applying for your loan once you find the right house.
Choosing your real estate agent
Buying a home is a major decision, so take time to find a real estate agent that’s best for you. You can ask for recommendations from family, friends, your Home Lending Advisor or other people whose opinions you value. Be sure to interview several agents and research them online before choosing one.
