Why Should I Not Represent Myself When Purchasing a New Home?
All of these new home communities are incredible, let’s be honest. But what should you do when starting your search into some of these neighborhoods? Some people think that it is better to represent themselves when it comes to looking for and actually purchasing a home. They feel they can save money in the agent’s commissions and land more cash in their pocket at the end of the process. And while this may sound like an ideal scenario, there are a few reasons why this is not a good idea and should be avoided. When purchasing a home, buyers should always look for an agent that has a good track record and extensive knowledge about the area. One of the main reasons you should not represent yourself is because experienced real estate teams have the inside scoop on new listings that have not hit the market yet. Our team at Jerry Pinkas Reality can take you on location to new homes that have just been listed, and even ones that are not listed yet but are set to be in the near future. This ensures that you have the cream of the crop and a variety of options to choose from when starting your house search. Talk about a competitive advantage! You are doing yourself and your family a huge disservice by only looking at houses that are listed on the internet. There are many incredible homes that sell early to excited buyers that never even made it online. Let our team help you in the search and take some of the pressure to keep up with the listings in Myrtle Beach off your back. We know what we are doing and have many happy and satisfied customers that had an incredible home buying experience!
Real estate agents will also help you ensure that you are not paying too much for a property as they know the comps in the area and how much you should be paying for the home. It is also good to have that barrier between you and the seller for negotiating purposes. Our team will always make sure that you are not overpaying for a home and see that you are not in a vulnerable position like you would be if you were to represent yourself.
You should also never walk into a new home community by yourself. Buyers want to make sure they are accompanied by an agent who can explain and represent them in the process. There may be properties that are not being shown to the public in that community, and you can only find out about them through agents who are connected to the real estate market in Myrtle Beach. Your agent can tell you all the amenities of the area, what you should be paying for the home in comparison to other comparable sales in the area and again help to negotiate the right price for you. Walking into a new home community in Myrtle Beach blind can prove to be extremely overwhelming and can add a lot of unneeded and unintended stress to the buying process. Let our team at Jerry Pinkas Reality walk you through these new home communities and show you all the benefits these properties can afford you and your family in Myrtle Beach!
