Advantages to Using A Realtor® to Help You Purchase Your New Home!
If you had $100,000, would you invest it without consulting a qualified financial advisor?

Buying a home is certainly on of the most rewarding experiences most of us ever have, it can also be one of the most challenging! If you’re buying for the first time, the process may seem overwhelming. And even if you’ve been through it several times before, every move is different and presents new challenges.
One clear advantage of enlisting the help of a Realtor® to help you purchase your new Pittsburgh Pennsylvania home... is that you simply don't have to "go at it alone".
A good Realtor has the training, the know-how, and the experience to help you through each step of the process and to make the process of finding, buying, and moving into your new home as smooth, quick and enjoyable as it can be.
Another advantage is that Realtors® are a valuable source of information about market trends, neighborhoods and especially information about homes for sale through out the areas in which you’re interested.
It used to be thought that, legally, all real estate agents involved in a given transaction work for the seller and they were paid by the seller, (the vast majority of agents today are still paid by the seller), however, the law has become more clear in this area.
Now with proper disclosure, the agent works for the buyer that they choose to represent. There is usually no cost to the buyer and it truly puts you in a “win-win” situation.
In order to get the process moving, you will have a Buyer Consultation Interview with your Realtor®. Why? Simple... because no one likes to waste time but that's what many purchasers do. They don't take the time to sit down with their Realtor® and learn about the home buying process and let their Realtor® know, in great detail, what their housing needs are.
That’s what a “Buyer Consultation” is all about.
Through the experience of working with many buyers over the years, we have become skilled in (and enjoy) teaching you about the whole process and listening to your needs. Even if you have purchased a property in the recent past, a quick review might be in order to refresh everything in your mind!
