How a Buyer’s Agent Can Help Your Home Search
A buyer’s agent can help homebuyers organize their home search, negotiate with the seller’s agent and home sellers, and even help them through the home inspection.
 

A Heartwarming Story for Hopeful Home Buyers

 
 
I recently met with a young couple searching for their first home. Up until now, they had only ever attended open houses on their own and hadn’t yet worked with an agent. ⁠

So I asked them to send me a few available homes they liked, and I created a custom home tour for them all over their desired neighborhoods in Costa Mesa. ⁠

Throughout the day, they kept remarking that they couldn’t believe they hadn’t reached out to an agent sooner! ⁠

When you schedule a private showing with your agent, they can point out specific things to watch out for, tell you about the history of the house, and you can take your time when exploring the home. ⁠

The house hunting process can be daunting, but having a knowledgeable realtor in your corner can make the experience ten times better! ⁠

If this story sounds like your house-hunting experience or reminds you of a hopeful homebuyer you know, please send them my way! I’d love to take them through the process and help them find the right home. ⁠

Remember, live where you find joy!
 

What a Buyer’s Agent Can Do for Your Home Search

 

Like the young couple in the story above, there are many homebuyers who are missing out on the benefits that a buyer’s agent can provide with your home search.

 
They have access to even more homes.
 
This might come as a surprise to some, but popular websites like Zillow and Redfin don’t show every available listing. When you work with a buyer’s agent, they have access to even more listings that aren’t marketed online. If your agent is well-connected, they may even have off-market opportunities to share with you.
 
They are trained negotiators.
 
For many, a home is the most expensive purchase they will ever make in their lifetime. It’s a big deal and home buyers need someone they can trust to represent their best interests in the negotiation process. Buying a home is also an emotional process, which isn’t always helpful when negotiating. Having a buyer’s agent to negotiate on your behalf can make the process a lot smoother.
 
They know the local market and what a home is worth.
 
This is one of the benefits of working with a boutique agency, like MiLiEU Homes. Local real estate agents make it a priority to understand the local market better than anyone. With their specialized market knowledge, they can provide guidance to home buyers on what a home is actually worth.
 
They will save you time and money.
 
A buyer’s agent can do more than just show homes. They can introduce buyers to the right neighborhoods that fit your lifestyle, help you through the home inspection, and refer you to mortgage lenders, and a good buyer’s agent will keep helping you even after your purchase your dream home. Trust me! We know quality painters, contractors, furniture movers, and more!
 
So when you’re ready to purchase a home, get your buyer’s agent involved early on. Don’t feel guilty even if you’re months or years away. It’s a buyer’s agent’s job to help buyers with their home search from start to finish.
