On our first visit together,
you will learn about the home buying process and what to expect from the We Sell Chicago Team. Since buying a home is a complicated process, it’s important for us to fully understand each other. The relationship between a Homebuyer and an Agent must be based on trust, mutual goals, and understanding.
Let’s discuss the role of a Buyer’s Agent and the representation it involves: A Buyer’s Agent is retained by a buyer to look out for the buyer’s interests and to negotiate the best price from the buyer’s point of view. Just as the agent who lists the seller’s house owes the seller complete loyalty, the buyer’s agent owes the buyer the same degree of loyalty. Realtors who specifically work as a Buyer’s Agent have a sole responsibility to be loyal to the buyer and help them make an informed buying decision.
During this first visit, we will also determine your wants and needs. We have found it is only when a buyer is clear about what kind of home appeals to them that effective work can be done in finding that perfect home. Your home should fit the way you live, with spaces and features that appeal to the whole family. Before we begin looking at homes, we will make a list of your priorities – things like location, size, and of course, price range. Should the house be close to schools?…your job?…to public transportation? Exactly what amenities are you looking for? Together we will establish a set of minimum requirements and a “wish list.” Minimum requirements are those necessary things a property must have for you to consider it, while a “wish list” covers things that you’d like to have but aren’t essential. I can help you avoid making a costly mistake by helping you determine EXACTLY what your housing needs are.
