In today’s wired world, there are countless resources and guides for prospective buyers to refer to. However, nothing can compare to having an experienced professional advising you on the best practices and hidden risks of purchasing a property. Having a professional on your side for a purchase that carries as much financial weight as it does emotional could save you unforeseen time and money.
The stakes are high, so let’s first understand the role of brokers. A buyer who contacts a broker to view a listed property is the listing broker’s customer
. The listing broker, who has a fiduciary responsibility only to his client
– the seller, is obligated to put the seller’s interests above that of all other parties.
Your most important investment deserves the same level of professional attention. An exclusive buyer’s broker will not only examine your cost vs. price, identify what you can afford and show you appropriate properties, he will help you weigh the many issues and circumstances that determine the best approach to negotiating the perfect property. This means your broker will fully consider your interests and nothing else. Having this invaluable asset when purchasing is a win-win – requiring little or no investment.
Here are just a few reasons why buying with The FARE Group® is the smartest choice when choosing the right broker for you:
: Buying a home usually requires inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, contracts, etc. Your FARE Agent will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid costly delays or mistakes.
INSIGHT & EXPERIENCE
: Most people buy only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. In addition, there are many negotiating factors including price, financing, inclusions, exclusions, etc. We have experience navigating through various types of real estate transactions and having an expert by your side is critical.
: Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised on the market. The FARE Group® has the resources, know-how and time to find and investigate all available properties that fit your criteria. Additionally, The FARE Group® has access to over 30,000 property listings through its Residential Listing Service (RLS) and Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
: A home often symbolizes family, rest, and security. Because of this, the process can be emotional for most people. Having a concerned, but objective, person by your side will help you stay focused on the issues that are most important to you. Our agents play this role while providing objective information about each property.
CODE OF ETHICS
: The FARE Group® is a member of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) and the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors® (HGAR). Not all real estate practitioners are members of these prestigious real estate associations whose members subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics, based on professionalism and protection of the public.
