 Never Buy or Sell Real Estate Without Representation:

Even the smartest business people (including attorneys) hire Realtors to assist with their real estate transactions. Why?  Because it saves you a considerable about of time and energy and helps you (the buyer/seller) elevate risk.   And most importantly, it usually saves you money.  When you’ are making one of the largest financial decisions of your life, the intelligent choice is to hire a professional to assist you…especially when professional real estate representation is free to buyers (when we represent your interests, the seller pays the commission and fees). When you have no representation, the seller pockets that extra money and you negotiate from a disadvantage.  Please contact me and I will be happy to give you a no obligation consultation to discuss the process and get you started on the right track.  At the very least, have a Realtor give you a Comparative Market Analysis on the property you are buying, especially if it’s new construction.

Here are some questions to consider:

How many real estate transactions have you successfully negotiated?

What are the three proven strategies of negotiating with a builder or condo developer?

What’s the best way to negotiate with an individual seller as opposed to a developer?

Do you have your own updated real estate contracts approved by the Texas Real Estate Commission, or are you going to trust that the Seller’s contracts will be fine and will protect you where needed?

If something starts to go wrong, smell bad, or sound funny who are you going to ask for advice who has already had experience in this exact situation with this exact seller/developer?

Do you know exactly what will happen to your earnest money? Can you loose your earnest money altogether?

What have other properties or condos recently sold for and how much did they negotiate off the list price?

Do you understand the difference between Buyer’s Agency, Seller’s Agency and Intermediary?

*If you are not 100% certain how to answer any of the questions above, please give us a call. You have the right to professional representation from a State of Texas licensed real estate broker or Realtor. Our services are free to you since the seller pays our fee. So, please, call us and we’ll discuss your situation. We are here to help you.
