Do not go out and buy on your own. Let me say that again….Do Not Buy Alone!
I know sometime real estate agents are a pain in the butt to deal with…but don’t make the bad decision and buy alone. Of course it is fine to search properties via the web or even visit open houses, etc….but when the time gets close, make sure you DO NOT get stuck buying alone.
Many people think that buying a condo is pretty simple and straight-forward, and many times it is…but I would say more times than not they are just as complex or even more complex than buying a single family home.
To put the product type (condominium) aside, buying real estate is one of the biggest financial purchases you will make in your entire lifetime. Most sellers hire a selling broker often known as a listing broker. These real estate brokers are professionals and they work for the seller, ALWAYS. Even though many of these listing brokers are very kind, they have legal obligation to work solely in the sellers best interest and to get their client (the seller) the highest possible price. Now why would you want to try and negotiate with a listing broker alone.
When you hire a buyers broker (there is never a charge…we get compensated by the listing broker -split commission), you are hiring a broker who is going to work legally and solely in the best interest for YOU. Helping YOU scout and compare properties and eventually to help YOU negotiate the Lowest Possible Price!
To sum this up short and sweet. Do Not Buy Alone. You are not saving any money (because buyers brokerage is free for you) and you will have all of the stress of running comps, negotiations and paperwork. You don’t gain anything if you buy your new condo alone.
Now that we drilled that message home you can also look into innovative brokers like us, BuySideRealty or our pals at Redfin. Even though all buyers brokers are free for you to utilize, some (like us) take it one step further and actually compensate YOU for using a buyers broker.
For example, we operate on a Flat Fee Buyers Brokerage model (Compare Us) and we only accept the first $5,000 of our commission paid by the seller and we REFUND the remainder to you.
On an average $500,000 condo, our company receives a $15,000 commission check from the sellers broker, we accept the first $5,000 and REFUND you the remainder…or $10,000 cash back to you in this example. So yes…you get our professional services & assistance, your new condo for the lowest possible price AND the majority of our Buyers Brokerage Commission check! Sound too good to be true….
