Selecting and purchasing a new home or investment is a complex process. It is important to find an Agent who will listen and respond to your desires and goals, use all available resources of the industry to locate prospective properties and tailor the purchasing process to fit your needs. Access to information and networks is crucial to efficiently search for properties which are suitable. A Buyer's Agent has an obligation to show you the entire inventory of properties including MLS, FSBO's (for sale by owners), bank owned properties, auctions and new construction.
Professional Buyer Agents have created a referral network of other Real Estate related experts who support Buyer representation. They include Attorneys, Mortgage Consultants, Appraisers, Engineers, Architects, Contractors, and Home Inspectors to name a few. The job of a Buyer Agent is not to "sell", but to serve the Buyer with representation services. A Buyers Agent helps you, as a consumer, to make informed decisions!
Studies show that Professional Buyer Agents save Buyers money in terms of time and negotiating power. In addition, their up front research helps to eliminate costly mistakes. You must have a clear picture of the process, including your option of Buyer Agency, so that you can choose your preferred level of Service. On properties not listed with Wallace Realty LLC you may elect to have us represent you as your Buyer Agent, in which case we would be legally bound to work for you and not the seller. See our Client level services for Buyers.
