Whether you are thinking about buying now or in the future, let's get together to discuss your needs. It doesn't cost you anything and you may learn a little, or a lot, about the home buying process and local market. Kit Wilson- 928 442 6887

Hire your agent.

The typical real estate transaction involves at least two dozen separate individuals-insurance assessors, mortgage brokers and underwriters, inspectors, appraisers, escrow officers, buyer's agents, seller's agents, bankers, title researchers, and a number of other individuals whose actions and decisions have to be orchestrated in order to perform in harmony and get a home sale closed. It is the responsibility of your real estate agent to expertly coordinate all the professionals involved in your home purchase and to act as the advocate for you and your interests throughout.

Seven main roles of your real estate agent

A Buyer's Real Estate Agent:

Educates you about your market.

Analyzes your wants and needs.

Guides you to homes that fit your criteria.

Coordinates the work of other needed professionals.

Negotiates on your behalf.

Checks and double-checks paperwork and deadlines.

Solves any problems that may arise.

Eight important questions to ask your agent

Qualifications are important. However, finding a solid, professional agent means getting beyond the resume, and into what makes an agent effective. Use the following questions as your starting point in hiring your licensed, professional real estate agent:

Why did you become a real estate agent?

Why should I work with you?

What do you do better than other real estate agents?

What process will you use to help me find the right home for my particular wants and needs?

What are the most common things that go wrong in a transaction and how would you handle them?

What are some mistakes that you think people make when buying their first home?

What other professionals do you suggest we work with and what are their credentials?

Can you provide me with references or testimonials from past clients?
