Here are some tips to make the most effective use of real estate professionals. This is ESPECIALLY important with a first time home purchase.
The first thing that you need to know is that real estate professionals WANT you to succeed and have a smooth transaction and get the home of your dreams. It is important to remember that they are on YOUR side. Sometimes they ask you to do things so that they can negotiate effectively or help facilitate you working with a mortgage professional efficiently. These are important and the better you are able to follow their directions, the smoother things will go.
They will have guidance for you and choices for you to make…on things like the home offer, home inspections, closings and other parts of the process. Their goal is to make things happen as CLOSE to hassle free as possible. Let them help you.
A second and important point is to ask them a LOT of questions. Make sure that you are completely comfortable with the answers. This is a really big transaction. It is likely the biggest one that you have made in your life. You want to make sure that you understand it thoroughly.
