When you're ready to start your home serach, please know that all realtors are NOT created equally.Â Â Here are threeÂ important qualities when deciding to hire a buyer's agent when you are ready to buy a home (fyi, there is never a fee to hire a buyer's agent to represent your best needs in Colorado -- commissions are always paid by the seller).
No. 1:Â Select an agent who sells real estate full-time, not someone who has another job or works part-time.Â Considering buying a home is the most important financial decision you'll ever make, hire a professional who will represent YOUR best interests.
No. 2:Â Select an agent who is more concerned about you than getting their next paycheck.Â Â FAnyone canÂ showÂ propety, but find a realtor who makes sure your needs come first.Â For example, when you findÂ a home you love, a buyer's agent is responsibleÂ guiding you through the process and write an offer thatÂ a seller will accept.Â That is much easier said than done, and it takes years of experience toÂ fully understandÂ Denver's competitive real estate market.
No. 3: A good buyer's agent will advise you to speak to aÂ lender before youÂ begin shopping for homes.Â Â This is CRITICAL to your success.Â An agent whoÂ is eager to show you homes before being pre-approved for a loan is aÂ recipe for disaster.Â How can you buy something until you can you can afford it?.
