For Buyers: Advice for Successful Real Estate Transaction – Part 2
Once you’ve established a good working relationship with a real estate agent, it’s time to let him use his skills and expertise to find a home in the Cary NC real estate market that suits your requirements and budget. Most realtors will use the MLS (Multiple Listing System) to locate suitable properties for you. Some realtors can also set up a private website exclusively for you so you can view matching homes online and provide feedback to your agent about the Cary, North Carolina real estate he finds for you. Communication is very important at this stage of the process. Be sure to give your realtor honest opinions of the homes he’s selected for you to view. If one particular home seems especially attractive, it’s time to move the process to the next step: visiting the property in person.
Your realtor will schedule appointments to view one or more of the homes you’re interested in. Then, as you tour the homes, he’ll point out the positive and negative features of each property, again drawing from his experience to give you a realistic picture of the home. He’ll also know how popular or desirable the neighborhood is, since this has a direct effect on the home’s price. And as far as price is concerned, a good real estate agent will also be able to determine whether the asking price of the property has room for negotiation or not. As the process evolves, both you and the agent will work as a close-knit team to find just the perfect home.
