Like most home buyers, you have two primary considerations in mind when you start looking for a home. First, you want to find a home that perfectly meets your needs and wants. And secondly, you want to buy that home for the lowest possible price. When you analyze what successful home buyers do to get the house they want at the price they want, sometimes at thousands below the seller's asking price, some common themes emerge. First, you want to know what you're looking for in a home, both what you need and what you want. Second, you need to know what you can afford before you go out looking at homes, so you're not wasting your time looking at homes above or below your price range. That can be very frustrating. And third, as a buyer, it's equally important to have a realtor on your side, as it would be if you were a home seller. Without the proper agent, not only can you end up paying more for the house you buy, but you may also miss out on some great properties that inexperienced agents may miss in finding your dream home. The realtor who gave you this video has experience and specialized knowledge in the home buying process that will help you achieve superior results. As with any professional not all real estate agents are the same, not all real estate agents offer the same level and quality of service. Now, if your real estate agent gives you good information and good advice, you're likely to make good decisions. Conversely, if your real estate agent gives you poor information or poor advice, you're likely going to make poor decisions. As I see it, the role of your real estate agent is to give you informed and professional advice in order to help you locate the best home on the market that meets your particular needs. Once this happens, it's your real estate agent’s role to help you purchase this home for the best possible price. I wish you all the best in finding the home of your dreams.
