Why get representation as a buyer? Every agent in a real estate transaction is representing someone. But according to the Texas Real Estate Commission, unless an agent is designated as the official Buyer’s agent in written form, then the agent is representing (and must represent) the seller by default – even if the agent is showing you houses! Yes – really!
Obtaining official representation as a buyer is critical to ensuring your interests are being represented by a real estate professional when buying a home. Not only does having agent representation as a buyer help protect your interests, but the commission paid to the buyer’s agent is paid for by the seller!
How does buyer representation from the Katy Home Team work?
You have questions, we have answers
How much home can you afford? How long does the buying process take? How do I get pre-approved for a mortgage? How much cash will I need to bring to closing? These are all common buyer questions, and we can help walk you through them to help you make the most informed decisions possible when buying your new home.
We won’t waste your time
We go beyond the basic “how many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need?” when discussing what you’re looking for in your next home. We discuss features (Want a large kitchen? Do you need an additional outbuilding that can be used as an office?) and finishings (Do you prefer white cabinets? Is wood flooring a must?) – and get a feel for how important each feature is to you. This helps us ensure we’re only showing you homes that get as close to your criteria as possible without wasting your time (or ours).
We leverage technology
Once we have an idea of what you’re looking for, we’ll set up a custom home search so that you can be notified about new listings that fit your criteria when they hit the market.
When what might be your perfect house hits the market, you probably won’t want to waste any time getting in to see it. We’ll do our best to work around your schedule to get you in to see the homes you want, when you want (and as they hit the market).
We know the area
We’re all about Katy. We stick to our market, and as such, we know our market inside and out. We can help you figure out which locations in town can fit your housing, schooling, commuting, and amenity needs.
We’re fierce negotiators
Negotiation can make many people feel uncomfortable. Not us. We love it. As your Buyer’s Representative, we’ll help you craft competitive offers and negotiate with the sellers in your corner to help get you the home you want, at the price you want, with the terms you want.
