Holly Walther Team Fun Fact Friday: Importance of Having a Realtor
Hey, good afternoon. It’s Holly and little Miss Daisy. She’s taken a nap on this Friday afternoon, but we wanted to come to you with your Friday Fun Fact. And this week we want to talk about real estate agents and representation when buying a home. 99% of the time when my phone rings, a lot of time a buyer will call and they’ll say that they’re not going to have a realtor represent them because they want to save money. Well, the fact of the matter is a lot of times you aren’t saving money. You’re actually costing yourself money and you’re putting yourself at risk. A good realtor is going to walk you through the process from start to finish. They’re going to help you identify neighborhoods. They’re going to help you think about things, about the property that you may or may not consider. They’re going to tell you to date the property, to drive to and from the house. Um, you need to really get to know the house that you’re considering. They’re also going to guide you through the process from contract, where you’re going to make your offer. They’re going to help you with your negotiations. They’re going to go over earnest money with you. They’re going to talk about due diligence with you. Inspections – they’re going to work with us as your preferred lending partner to make sure we’re protecting you through all of those milestones and that you’re well represented.
So just wanted to come to you this afternoon to remind you that we have some great realtor partners that we’ve worked with for many years – some more than 20 years. And we’d love to make that introduction for you. And just reminding you that it’s not going to cost you having representation. The seller’s going to pay that commission and there’s no reason for you to not have that protection. Because, if you don’t have it, it’ll cost you more long term. So have a great weekend, if you need us – we’re here and we’ll see ya next week!
