Why Should I Hire You as my Agent? PART 1

During the home-buying process, you will collaborate with and speak with your real estate agent more than any other party involved. This person will be your right hand, support system, and, in some cases, your eyes and ears. Most importantly, they will be the expert throughout the home search or home selling process. Find an agent that fits your needs and they'll work for you to find the ideal home at the price point you can afford. 

Not every agent is the same. Take a look at their history of homes sold in the past 6 months to a year. If they have just a few, then you know that this not their number one priority. They may work another job, which may not be in the best interest for you.

Maybe you’re actively looking for a house, or maybe it’s just a spur of the moment urge, but you follow the signs to the model home.
You park.
You walk into the model home.
The builder’s sales rep asks you to please sign in.
You sign in.
Ouch. You may have just made a costly mistake…
"It’s Not Like I’m Buying One…"
Most people don’t think twice about signing in when they visit a model home. They figure, what’s the harm? It isn’t like I’m signing something to actually buy one. I just want to take a look, and it’s not like they’re asking me to sign my life away.

First: The negotiating period is just that. Buyers and Sellers offer and counter-offer to agree to the property transfer terms that will appear in the contract. The buyer offers to buy an identified property and the seller agrees to sell under the terms and conditions they have negotiated and mutually agreed to. This becomes what is called a Signed Around Contract or reaching Mutual Agreement. Both parties have signed. There is mutual acceptance to the terms of the offer.
