Many potential home buyers like to start the home search by themselves. They take out the time to view advertisements for homes, stop at open houses and search dozens of on-line sites. On the other hand, most qualified buyers prefer to hire a realtor to do the searching for them, based upon the specifics of your desires and price range. In this scenario, all the buyer has to do is view “the right homes”, sign a contract prepared by the realtor that is representing you (not the seller), apply for a loan and start packing.
Here are the top 3 reasons why you need to choose a realtor to work with.
1. You Save a Lot more than Money
When you are searching for a home, you are restricted to the homes you know about. In many cases, this may be a very small catalogue as most people search on-line. One problem with this method is the information may or may not be valid ~ there are often mistakes or inaccuracies, even “bait and switch”.
When using the trial and error method to find a house yourself, this method will consume a lot of your time. However, when you are spending so much money to find your dream home, why not search a little more?
The best thing about hiring a gay realtor is that you have a much wider category of homes available to you, and an expert that does this full-time, every day. Realtors have instant access to all of the homes for sale, whether by owner or MLS, even bank owned and foreclosures. All you have to do is tell them your preferences and they will narrow down the search for you, and each and every day, you’ll have instant access to the full details of homes meeting your specific criteria. This saves you time and frustration in trying to hunt out that “perfect deal.”
2. You Get the Right Neighborhood
No home can be complete without the right neighbors. Unfortunately, those are very hard to come by, especially for LGBT individuals. If you are looking for a home on your own, not only do you have to find the right house, you have to make sure that the community and/or your neighborhood is LGBT friendly.
If you want to circumvent this problem, you will need to hire a gay realtor. They know exactly what neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale are friendly towards LGBT individuals and which neighborhoods are not. The last thing you need to do is buy a home where your neighbors do not like you.
3. You will always have a Trusted Advocate
If you choose to find a home for yourself, you will most likely have to deal with the unknown yourself;
What is the true value of the home ~ What is the sellers motivation ~ What about the neighbors and neighborhood ~ What financing is available ~ What inspections should I have ~ What is the trend of home values in the neighborhoods ~ How should we take title to the property, and a hundred other questions.
For most people, this is not an easy task. If you hire a Top Professional Gay Realtor, you will always have a trusted advocate that will be with you until the moment you are handed over the keys. As an LGBT individual, it is good to have someone that you are assured will consider your needs, and will treat you with equality, while representing your best interests in a professional manner.
