BUYERS: LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT NEW HOME?
UNDERSTANDING BUYER AGENCY - Who does the agent represent?
The type of relationship formed between the agent and the client is called a fiduciary relationship.
A fiduciary relationship is one based on trust, because the agent owes the following duties to the client: Confidentiality, loyalty, diligence, accounting and reasonable care.
When we represent you, all our duties are owed to YOU and not the seller!
You have the freedom to discuss the value of properties, negotiating strategies and personal finances with us.
You can obtain our opinion concerning the condition of the property, the effect of improvements, the seller's motivation for selling, and a variety of information which a seller's agent may not provide.

If you’re hoping to buy a home in today’s highly competitive market, it’s important to make your offer stand out. If you’ve gotten advice from someone who’s purchased a home before, know that what’s worked in the past may not ring true anymore.
Today’s buyers shouldn’t shop for a home and expect to negotiate a lower sales price. In a typical housing market, buyers try to determine how much less than the asking price they can offer and still get the home. From there, the buyer and seller typically negotiate and agree on a revised price somewhere in the middle.
Today is different. The current housing market is anything but normal. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), homes today are:
• Receiving an average of 3.6 offers
• Selling in a median of just 18 days
This is due, in large part, to the fact that there just aren't enough homes available for the number of buyers who are eager to purchase them. Low supply and high demand means homes often sell for more than the asking price. In some cases, they sell for a lot more.
You may need to rethink how you look at a home’s asking price.
If you’ve found your dream home, you need to be realistic about today’s housing market and how that impacts the offer you’ll make. Offering below or even at a home’s asking price may not cut it right now. Currently, the asking price is often the floor of the negotiation rather than the ceiling. That’s important to keep in mind as you work with your agent to craft an offer
Let us assist you in the correct approach toward realizing your goals.
Please call or email us any time, we look forward to discussing your next steps in the buying process and we'll provide you with tools, tips and detailed information regularly according to YOUR time frame.
