Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does it cost me anything to purchase a home with a realtor?
It does not cost a buyer anything to be represented by a buyer's agent. When the home is put on the market the seller agrees to pay for the selling agent to represent them, and also agrees to pay the buyer's agent when they get an accepted offer and close on the property.
2. Why should I buy, instead of rent?
The main reason is because the home is entirely yours, and it is something you can be proud of.
You are not able to say this when you are renting, and often times you are not able to change things.
Owning a home can also be a great investment because you have the possibility that its value will go up through the years as you live in it.
When you rent, you write the monthly check and you never see the money again.

3. How do I set the sales price of my home?
The best way to determine the asking price for your home is to find comparable sales. Your real estate agent will run a comparable market analysis to determine what people are willing to pay for your type of home, in your area, at the current time.
4. How do I choose a Realtor?
When choosing a realtor I recommend interviewing more than one. By doing this you are able to compare marketing plans and work ethic. You should find out if the realtor works full time, how they plan to market the home, and the communication they will provide. I would love an opportunity to interview for the job.

5. Are there any unique ways to get more buyers interested in my home?
You can offer incentives like offering to pay for closing costs, or paying the buyer's mortgage for the first few months. In this slow market home staging is very important. You can also purchase a home warranty, or have an inspection done previous to listing the home.
