Potential problems we help buyers overcome when buying their homes
Overpaying for the home
Most often, home prices are set by sellers who may, or may not, have sound ideas of what the actual home values are. It is not unusual for the seller (homeowner in most cases) to overestimate their home’s value.
The owner can set any price, and you may not have a way to verify the validity of the set price on your own.
One of the significant benefits of working with us is having professional agents in your corner who can help you analyze the home’s accurate market value.
With Ann Marie Gasbarrie on your side, you will have the peace of mind knowing that you are not overpaying for the property.
Some states do not require sellers to disclose defects or problems with their homes to potential buyers. This is known as Caveat Emptor. Licensed real estate agents are, however, held to higher standards.
A home purchase is a serious investment. As a professional real estate agent, we will always disclose to you any problems the property might have when selling it to you.
A home inspection problem can be quite hard to decipher for the average home buyer.
Some of the points of concern in the inspector’s report may be things worth worrying about while others may seem like a big deal when, in fact, they are not.
We look at inspection reports all the time, so we know how to pick out the crucial elements – information you will need when negotiating the home’s price.
In addition, we also help you pick the right home inspector. Let us take the risk out of your home buying equation as we help you get value for money.
Knowledge of the neighborhood
One of the greatest benefits of working with a real estate agent is their expertise in the neighborhoods in the areas where you are considering buying a new home. From property taxes to school districts, commutes, HOA rules, property values, and everything else.
The neighborhood you choose to move into can have a huge impact on the home’s value as well as its resale potential. Remember, you are not just buying a physical property.
You are getting into a long-term investment, and considering the amount of money involved, it is worthwhile knowing what you are getting and whether it fits the profile of a neighborhood you want to raise your family in.
Paperwork, laws, and regulations
Besides being complex, real estate laws vary from city to city, county to county, and state to state. And you need to obey the letter of the law to avoid running into legal troubles.
You have to read and understand the purchase contract before signing it, and you need to complete the paperwork accurately, correctly, and on time.
We will help you take care of all these during the home’s purchase process.
The search for the perfect home requires you, the buyer, to make decisions regarding how you would like to approach the process.
