Finding The Perfect Agent
Hiring the right real estate agent is a vital part of the home buying journey. Let's break down how a buyer's agent can help you along in the process.
Represents the buyer
A buyer's agent works & negotiates for YOU, not in the seller's best interests.
Has access to MLS
A buyer's agent has access to all available properties, even those not syndicated to public real estate sites.
Helps Schedule Showings
A buyer's agent helps schedule property showings on your behalf, on days and times that work for you.
Navigates Legal Contracts
A buyer's agent navigates legal contracts to ensure you are being taken care of, not taken advantage of, when purchasing a home.
Helps with Negotiations
A buyer's agent helps you negotiate the best price and best terms so you aren't overpaying for a home.
Are Paid by the seller
Buyer's agents don't collect commission from you - that is already negotiated with the seller's agent and seller. There are no out-of-pocket costs to hire a professional.
Choosing the right loan
The mortgage industry isn't cookie cutter. There are a variety of loan programs available to help suit your needs and purchasing power. Below are a few of the more common options available, but it's always best to talk to a lender to get more information. Definitely reach out to me if you're in need of a lender. I would love to give you some amazing lender reccomendations!
Buying VS Renting
Have you noticed how high rental rates have been growing in the San Antonio area? It may be the right time to considering purchasing a home instead of renting.
With a booming housing market and a strong economic atmosphere, rental rates have been increasing at an alarming speed. This makes purchasing a home more sensible than renting in our current market conditions. Although mortgage rates have been on the rise, monthly payments on your own home instead of paying high rent can be considerably cheaper. Home ownership also comes with the bonus of equity, personal space you can decorate and renovate without limitations, no hindrance on having pets, and the potential to net more money from your home when you choose to sell in a strong market. Although interest rates have been increasing, today's market conditions create the perfect time to consider purchasing, instead of paying 100% interest while paying rent without acquiring any equity.
