Amazing that someone would not be interested in help from a qualified professional. Do they think that by representing themselves they will "get the commission" in the form of a price reduction on the property?
I received a call from a potential buyer wanting to view my Mililani listing. They're flexible on the days, but need to look at it in the evenings around 7pm OR the weekends are fine at any time.
First question: Are you preapproved for a loan? She says, ...well, we want to look around a bit and see if there's anything we like first. (How many times have we heard that?)
Second question: Are you working with another real estate agent? She says, "We aren't going to get a real estate agent". I'm still wondering if I heard that correctly :)
If you are a SERIOUS Home Buyer you may want consider this:
- By having your own representation with a Buyer's Agent you will have someone who is thinking in your best interests and walk you through the process step by step. There are many contingencies in a contract to go through and a licensed real estate agent knows our Hawaii Purchase Contract and Hawaii Real Estate Laws. You can read more info here>>> Advisory for Buying Your Hawaii Home )
- The first step is to get preapproved for a home loan (unless you have all cash down of course) so you know what price range for properties you need to look in. This will not only help in targeting properties in your specific price range but you can stop wasting your time looking at properties that are well out of reach....OR....be comfortable knowing that the price range you're looking in fits your monthly budget for a monthly mortgage payment.
Realtors® assure their home sellers that they will show the property to qualified buyers. We assure our home buyers that we will think in their best interests and before showing that property we make sure they are qualified for it. Otherwise, you may be wasting your time.....and mine. I think they call that 'spinning wheels'.
If YOU were in the shoes of a Realtor® ......
