Today's Home Buying Process
The New Home Buying Process
The fundamental change in the real estate buying process has its roots in the Internet and the proliferation of smart phones. In today's world, there is a 60% chance that you've been using your phone to look at available homes’ photos, prices and other basic information.
Buying a home can be a highly personal matter. Big changes are coming that could eventually eliminate the real estate agent's role in helping you find a home. But the agent that represents you ensures that your “I LOVE IT!” emotions don’t influence the negotiations, potentially saving you thousands of dollars. Also, remember that the agent you choose to help you buy your home is almost always paid by the seller so the service is free to you.
