Real Estate Conversations with Brenda: Hiring a San Antonio Texas Buyers Agent...Don't You Want Someone in Your Corner

Hiring a San Antonio Texas Buyers Agent...Don't You Want Someone in Your Corner

Home Buying isn't a Do it Yourself Experience

Many people, when they decide they want to buy a home haven't a clue on how to get started...so inevitably they will start on the Internet.  With today's access to technology, one might think that home buying can be a do it yourself kind of experience.  Just hop on the old Internet, shop for a home and then Boxingwallahhh...I'll be in a home by next weekend.

Buying a Home in San Antonio Texas isn't like Retail Shopping

That simply isn't the case.  Buying a home in San Antonio Texas isn't like retail shopping.  Most folks who shop online don't even like to buy clothes or shoes online because they are taking a risk that the items won't fit, or don't end up looking like they do on the mannequin.  However, it's a bit easier because nine out of ten times, you can likely return the item for a full refund.

Home shopping or browsing online is a fun activity, and it can be neat to look at the pictures and get an idea of what you want in a home for sale.  However, until you get with a San Antonio Texas buyers agent and a lender to assist you with guiding you though the home buying process, you may be just setting yourself up for failure.

Understanding the Advantage of Having a San Antonio TX Buyers Agent

There are a lot of people who may not understand the advantages of having a San Antonio TX buyers agent.  They may think that all we do is open up the door and let a person in the home and then the rest is a cake walk.  That is the furthest thing from the truth.  Finding the home is often times the easy part.  Once we get you qualified for the type of loan you want to use, then it's just a matter of narrowing down wants and needs and area and, for me at least, doesn't take me long to find my buyer's home.

However, once we find that home, that is where the true work begins with comparative market analysis preparation, structuring an offer to meet your needs, negotiating, getting the acceptance, guiding you on inspections, ensuring all of your interests are protected, ensuring you get all disclosures, communicating with all parties involved with your purchase and clearing the way for a smooth transaction so that on closing day, you get your keys to your new home and are one happy buyer.  That's the short and sweet version.

Hire a San Antonio Texas Buyers Agent to be in your Corner

Not having a San Antonio Texas buyers agent will cause you to either figure all this out by yourself or have the listing agent do this for you.  Perhaps you are thinking to yourself, if I work through the seller's agent, that will save me money on the home purchase.  Let me disabuse of that notion right here and now.  The listing agent works for the seller...period.  Although they are to treat you fairly in the transaction and with honesty, they owe fiduciary duty to their client.  Their number one goal is to get the best price and terms for their seller.  Period.  Any agent that tells you otherwise is not being very truthful to you.

Besides, don't you want someone in your corner?
