Finding the right agent

You want to find the right home, in the right location, at the right price - and you want to do it quickly, with minimum hassle. The best way to do that is to work with a professional realtor who understands your wants and needs, your time frame and your financial boundaries.

Why work with an agent?

• You'll save time. An agent can pinpoint homes that fit your needs and dismiss those that don't.
• You benefit from an experienced negotiator. Lev will manage your offers and counter-offers, ensuring that you get the best possible price for your home.
• You'll get the right information. Lev knows the neighborhood and can give you accurate information on local real estate values, taxes, utility costs, services and amenities.
• You can always count on great advice. Because I am familiar with the entire home purchasing process, I can advise you of your legal and financial options, and recommend home inspection and the notary.

Choose an agent who understands your needs

Here are a few questions to ask to help you determine if an agent is right for you:
• Will you be representing my interests?
• Do you have access to MLS information?
• Will you provide market evidence to support the price?
• Will you look after closing and possession details?
• Can you be contacted at any time?

Working with an agent

Let your real estate agent do the searching for you. The best buys aren't in the newspaper ads; most great opportunities are on "hot sheets" that are available every morning to salespeople with access to MLS information.

An agent's job is to:

• Provide information on the property and the area
• Negotiate a price and terms that are agreeable to both buyer and seller
• Help arrange a source of financing

As a homebuyer, you should work with your agent to find the home that's right for you. Communication is key - tell to Leg Golberg what you want, and be specific.
• Offer a detailed description of your property needs and wants. If you will absolutely not consider a house without a hardwood floor, say so. And if air conditioning is a "nice to have" rather than a "must have," communicate that, too.
• Be specific about where you want to live. If you refuse to live outside a certain area, it might take longer to find you a home, but Lev will know not to waste your time with anything not in your chosen neighborhood.
• Tell to Leg Golberg what you can afford. I can help you get a pre-approved mortgage so you know for sure what your price range will be.
• Communicate your likes and dislikes for each property you see. It will help Lev narrow down the possibilities.
• Respect and perform the terms of the purchase agreement.
• Keep an open mind. Agents know about those charming little areas that you've never even heard of. You might find your dream home in a completely unexpected place.
Thank you!
