The Process of Buying Your First Home

The Process of Buying your New Home

Step 2: b) Find Your Agent

I told you I felt that part b was just as important as part a.  Here are a few things that a good agent will do for you:


  • A good agent won't mind that you're not ready to buy "right now" 

  • A good agent will take the time to help you learn the market 

  • A good agent will never make decisions for you or push you to make decisions in a certain way. 

  • A good agent will offer you an array of professional resources-from inspectors, and lawyers, to contractors and escrow agents. 

These are just a few of the things that a good agent provides you (I'll outline even more anothr day), but here's what your take away point should be--


If you don't choose any agent early on in the process, you may not end up with a "good agent".  It does take some time to find one that you feel comfortable working with and that you're sure can aggressively, and competently protect your interests and get you into the perfect home. Plus, if you choose an agent early on, you won't miss out on a lot of great things that agent can provide for you including education, guidance and resources.  It can be a lot to manage on your own.



Take the time to meet with a few agents and see which one best fits with you and your needs and will be able to provide you the best services throughout your entire home-buying process.
