Why You Need a Realtor

TAR - 2501 Information About Brokerage Services

A Realtor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business of buying a property. In fact, a licensed real estate professional provides much more than the service of helping you find the property of your dreams. Sean Little, Broker, is not just a real estate sales agent, he is an expert negotiator and a seasoned financial advisor.

Real estate agents are members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and must abide by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice enforced by the NAR. 

A professional Realtor is your best resource when buying a property.

  • Working with Sean Little can save you endless amounts of time, money and frustration.
  • Sean Little knows the housing market inside and out and can help you avoid many a “wild goose chase.”
  • Sean Little can help you with any property even if it is listed elsewhere, or is being sold by the owner directly.
  • Sean Little knows the best lenders in the area; He can help you get pre-qualified for a mortgage; and discuss down payments, closing costs, and monthly payment options.
  • Sean Little is an excellent source for general information about the community, specific information about schools, churches, shopping, transportation, plus tips on house inspections and pricing.
  • Sean Little is experienced at presenting your offer to the propertyowner and can help you through the process of negotiating the best deal.  He brings objectivity to the buying transaction, and can point out advantages and disadvantages of a particular property.

And the BEST thing is that all this help won’t cost you a cent. Generally, the seller pays the commission to Realtors. However, that doesn’t affect Sean Little’s dedication or the spirit of teamwork that he will put into helping you find and buy the property you are interested in buying. After all, his success depends on your success.

Why should I use an Agent to purchase a new property?

The advantages of having Sean Little help you purchase a new property are the same as those for purchasing a resale property…knowledge of the market, help in finding the perfect property quickly, expertise in contract writing/negotiation, and closing assistance. The builder has a professional representative watching out for his needs, and you need the same expert representation.

Buying a new property is a little more difficult and time-consuming than buying a resale. Sean Little can professionally guide you through this process. Sean Little has experience working with builders, has access to a database of information about subdivisions, floor plans, etc. Sean Little is also familiar with new property warranties and builders purchase contracts.

It is very important that your interests be professionally represented when you are entering into a contract for a semi-custom or build-to-suit property. These transactions are complex and the contract details must be exact in order to protect you and to ensure you get exactly the property you want!

Is there any advantage to not using an Agent to purchase a new property?

No. There is no financial advantage for you to buy directly from the builder. Builders have a “single-price” policy, meaning you will be charged the same price whether your interests are represented by an Agent or not. Just as in any resale, the Seller pays your Agent’s fee.

REMEMBER – the Builder requires that your Agent accompany you on your first
visit to the Builder’s sales office, or they will NOT PAY your representative’s fee!
