Buying Your Ocean County Home
A buyer’s agent will guide you through the home-buying transaction and be at your disposal for any questions or concerns.
- Find the right property: After determining what you are looking for and what you can afford, I’ll schedule appointments to tour homes that fit the bill. I’ll also explain the pros and cons of various properties and neighborhoods to help you decide which home is right for you.
- Negotiate the offer: I’ll advise you on an appropriate price to offer and present it to the seller's agent. Then I’ll negotiate on your behalf and write up the offer/contract for you. This is where my experience in negotiating deals can save you money and help you avoid pitfalls like a fixer-upper that's more trouble than it's worth
- Recommend other professionals: I’ll be able to refer you to reliable mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, movers, and more.
- Help overcome setbacks: If the home inspector's report or appraisal brings new issues to light, I can advise you on how to proceed, and then act as a buffer between you and the sellers or their agent. If negotiations become heated or hostile, it's extremely helpful to have an experienced professional keeping calm and offering productive solutions.
Home buyers don't need to worry about the expense of hiring me. Why? Because the seller pays the commission for both the seller's agent and the buyer's agent.
