When an agent begins to work
with a new buyer, he or she will sit down with them and ask a lot of questions,
and do a lot of listening. In the initial buyer interview, we try to get a clear
idea of what you are looking for, as well as the approximate price range,
considering your overall financial picture. The agent will explain how we work
to represent you, what the local market in town is like, and what we can
do to help you locate that perfect home.
At this initial interview, it is important for
buyers to be as clear as possible about their needs. After you have talked and
decided how much you can comfortably spend, he or she won't show you homes you
might love that are way out of your price range. If the agent knows that you
have bad knees and want to avoid stairs, you won't be taken through three-story
colonials with top floor master suites. Promoting clear communication with our
customers is good business for us, and it can save you hours of house hunting.
