So Much Better Than Searching Solo
With the Internet making it so easy to search for homes, some home buyers may wonder whether they need the services of a real estate agent.
The thing to remember is that no matter how much superficial information you can find, real estate remains a specialized industry and, as a result, it pays to engage a specialist. On top of that, all the uncertainty about who most Realtors® represent can tempt home buyers to look on their own.
We urge you to learn more about exclusive buyer agency—and about The Home Buyers, Inc.—before you decide to take on the daunting task of home buying all by yourself.
Contact The Home Buyers, Inc. to learn more about how we can help.
No Risk to Visiting Open Houses
House hunting on your own exposes you to costly risks. You may plan to represent yourself, but every time you visit an open house, you’re risking representation from a Realtor® you didn’t choose. Without taking certain precautions, that real estate agent will be participating as your representative if you buy the house—whether you like it or not.
The good news is that having a written contract with The Home Buyers, Inc. can protect your interests. By enlisting the services of The Home Buyers, Inc., you’re certain that, should you move forward on any home, your interests will be served.
And, whether or not you engage The Home Buyers, Inc. or not, it is very important that you know how visiting open houses limits your options.
Nothing Out of Pocket
An exclusive buyer agent will cost you nothing out of pocket. That means that there really is no good reason to take on the home buying task on your own.
Because of how exclusive buyer agents get paid, it costs you nothing to benefit from all services The Home Buyers, Inc. has to offer.
More Homes, Sooner
The Home Buyers, Inc. has access to more homes. Thanks to our regular networking, we can tell you about homes before they come on the market. What’s more, we can help you find homes that are For Sale By Owner (FSBO) and that may not turn up in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
When you become a client, we’ll e-mail listings directly to you—before any websites have made them available to the general public.
If You Snoop the Side
It can be tempting to keep snooping for a home on your own, even if you have contracted with The Home Buyers, Inc. Driving around town or walking through your neighborhood, you may come across a home for sale whose curb appeal is irresistible.
Just make sure you avoid the MLS trap.
That’s okay. Just make sure you alert The Home Buyers, Inc. before contacting the seller’s Realtor®. Do not call the Realtor® featured on the yard sign. Instead, rely on us to arrange a showing. And, before you enter any open house, make sure you know how visiting open houses limits your options and how you can protect yourself against unwanted representation.
