Thinking about buying a home? Start here...

I can still remember the night my wife and I made an offer on our first home. After it was accepted, we stopped by my in-laws to tell them the good news. I was so excited and nervous when we left, I backed over a small newly planted tree in their front yard. While I don’t recall backing over any trees since then, I can tell you the excitement has still been there every time we’ve made the decision to buy a home.

An interesting set of statistics was published in the 2019 PROFILE OF HOME BUYERS AND SELLERS. It revealed that ultimately 94% of buyers purchase their home through a real estate agent or a home builder (not surprising). But only 16% of buyers contacted a real estate agent before looking for a home. Many buyers accidentally find an agent by scheduling a showing through a website. It could be an inexperienced agent or someone that just isn’t the right fit, it can be an uncomfortable situation to try to escape from. So how do you avoid this? Choose your real estate agent, don’t have them choose you. Contacting an agent early can greatly simplify the home buying process.
