Expert Greater Puget Sound Area Buyer’s Agent

A buyer’s agent is legally bound to help the buyer, whereas a listing agent (the real estate agent representing the home seller) has a fiduciary duty to the seller. It’s very much in the best interest of a home buyer to use an agent who represents YOUR interests, and Calvillo Real Estate Services is passionate about helping clients find the perfect home for them.

Don’t Make This Type of Mistake

Lakeland Hills and Lea Hill Buyer’s Agent | Calvillo Real Estate SvcsIt would be a mistake, for example, to talk with the listing agent at an open house about how much you like the home, that you’d like to make an offer, and that you need to move soon because you’re expecting another child and need more space now. Or disclosing that you need to move quickly because the lease on your rental is up in a couple of months. The listing agent would use the information against you by informing the sellers your clock is ticking and advising them not to budge on their asking price.

Saying the same things to your Greater Puget Sound Area buyer’s agent would keep them private from the seller and their agent so they wouldn’t be used against you. Some states, including Washington, recognize this as enough of a problem that they require you sign a disclosure of dual agency when a broker represents both sides of a real estate transaction. Hiring an agent who’s not representing the seller in any way is the best way to look out for your best interests.

Preparing to Buy a Home

Part of your buyer’s agent’s responsibility is to make your home buying process as simple and stress-free as possible, and Karri Calvillo is available to answer questions every step of the way. Making the following buying preparations early can help set you up for a successful real estate transaction.

  • Begin arranging the down payment (generally 10-20%)
  • Check your credit score & fix any problems
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage
  • Refrain from large purchases until transaction is closed
  • Benefits to Working with a Real Estate Agent

While it’s possible to buy a house without the assistance of a real estate professional, the road can be quite difficult. It’s almost always better to find an experienced realtor dedicated to your home search and future happiness. There’s no substitute for experience, and realtors also have access to information and tools not available to the general public.

  • Access to a wide variety of available homes for sale
  • Awareness of specific home features not necessary marketed online
  • Extensive knowledge of market conditions and price expertise
  • Understanding of local zoning ordinances
  • Experience negotiating sale prices without emotion
  • Familiarity with the documents needed, and with filing processes
  • Ability to identify problem areas during inspection & repair request process
  • Able to anticipate and help avoid closing problems
  • Maintaining purchase records for many years
