This is a question that many people ask when they first consider purchasing a home. Why not just call the agent on the sign or on the internet and go through them? What difference does it really make?
A buyer's agent's job is to represent you, the buyer to the best of their ability. To show you the homes that you are interested in seeing, regardless of who the listing agent is. Their goal is to make sure, that as a buyer, you are informed and able to make solid offers that will lead to a closed transaction and keys in your hands! In the Temecula Valley and surrounding areas, the tax rates vary from community to community. A buyer's agent will make sure that before you offer on a property, that the tax rate and any assessments as well as Home Owner Association dues are disclosed and accurate. A higher tax rate can cause serious problems in escrow and can price you right out of a home. A buyer's agent will be aware of the school districts and local schools in the area that you are looking in and if not, they should be willing to find out that information for you. They will keep your needs and dreams as a top priority while helping you to find your new home.
During escrow there are several steps that need to be taken and done in a timely manner according to the purchase agreement. The buyer's agent will make sure that you stay in line with time frames dictated by the purchase agreement and will interact with the seller's agent to make sure that they do the same. The buyer's agent will work closely with your lender as a team looking out for your best interest.
Remember, you are the client. You should feel comfortable asking your agent questions and spending time with them.Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime. A buyer's agent knows this and will keep it in mind as they walk you through the process.
