Questions That I Am Frequently Asked by 1st Time Home Buyers

I frequently am asked a couple of very simple and common questions when someone starts their home search. Buying a home is the single largest purchase that you will probably make in your entire life time, so people can, understandably, be nervous. The first question that I am often asked by buyers is “How much do you charge and when do we have to pay you?”  It is very easy to see why the assumption would be made that you would have to pay for my services to help you buy a home.  More than likely, although I love my job, I am not doing all of that work for nothing.  The truth of the matter is that the seller has, in a way, already committed to pay for all real estate services associated with getting their home sold  —  most of the time.  So, my answer to that question, 99% of the time is, you will have to pay me nothing to be your buyer’s agent and to help you purchase your new home.

Whew, good news, huh!  One less thing that you have to pay for.  So let’s get started looking for your new home.  But wait, there is one more question.  “What if I found a house that is listed with another real estate company that I want to look at?”  Another easy question…I can show you any home that is listed in our mls and most of them that are for sale by owner or in another mls.  In order to facilitate the marketing and showing of homes, most real estate agents in the area belong to our local Fayetteville Associate of Realtors.  That allows us to share information and to show each other’s homes, which is a marketing service to the sellers.  That means that I can show you all or most of the homes on your list.

Again, great news!  So, let’s get started.  Your search will be so much easier if you can choose one real estate agent and allow them to help you throughout the search.  We get to know you and what you are looking for.  I can tailor internet searches to meet your criteria and suggest possible homes that might interest you.  So take advantage of my experience and expertise and let’s get started on the journey to find your new home!
