Real estate agents: a great solution for home buyers Research, visits, negotiations and paperwork: buying a property can be complex, especially for first-time buyers. To avoid making mistakes, you’re much better off using the ser­vices of a real estate agent who will protect your interests. After all, this is a major in­vestment you’re about to make. Doing business with real estate agents has many advantages. They handle all legal as­pects of the complex real estate transaction and accompany 20

you through each step of the buying process. In addition to receiving expert advice, you will be able to take ad­vantage of their wide network of contacts in order to find the other professio­nals whose services you need, such as a building inspector, a no­tary or lawyer or a mortgage broker. It also makes finding the perfect home easier. Realtors have access to numerous tools for finding the property that best meets your needs. They ensure that you have

all the documents necessary to evaluate the property, including the complete listing, the property survey or certificate of location and tax bill. Their neutral perspective could also be valuable when you fall in love with a property that isn’t really what you’re looking for. They’ll help you think twice before you make a decision. Because of their experience and market knowledge, real estate agents can help buyers determine the right price to offer for the property they are inte­rested in. Depending on the state you live in, you

may also be protected by law if you use the services of an agent. In short, working with a real estate agent to buy a property is a smart move. So why de­prive yourself? Homes~Land ISLANDER
