Buyer’s agents are a huge asset to your home buying experience. They make your search, negotiation, and final transaction more professional and less stressful, whether this is your first home purchase or your fifteenth.  Check out eight ways your buyer’s agent is indispensable:

Time

Great buyer’s agents spend loads of time online, searching for listings that match your requirements. They spend time on the phone, contacting other agents to get all the details. Then, they spend time previewing houses before you ever see them – all in an effort to save YOUR time.

Money

A buyer’s agent can tell you if the house you love is worth the price tag attached to it. He or she can provide a market analysis to determine the fair value of the home,

Is a quick move-in home right for you? A “quick move-in” is a real estate term used to describe new construction that is complete or nearly complete, allowing for an accelerated closing date compared to building new from the ground, up. There are great benefits involved if you find one that checks off your must-have list.

No Waiting Period

There is no seller with a move-out time frame, and you will not wait the 6-10 months that it takes to build. The builder wants to sell as quickly as possible, and quick move-in homes allow for closing in as little as 30 days. For cash buyers, it could be even faster.  Some custom home builders may even allow buyers to make final design selections if the home is not yet fully complete.
