Embarking on a new home search can be overwhelming, we understand it may intimidating. You probably have started your search online and are itching to get inside the homes.

This is where the buyer consultation comes into the home buying process. This is your opportunity to interview an agent – at no cost, with no obligation to choose to work with them. During this meeting, the agent will cover the following with you:
- The home buying process
- Current market trends
- Available inventory in the towns you are searching in
- Answer all of your questions
The agent will ask questions to understand what your needs and wants are and to get to you know as a person. Experienced agents not only understand the nations current market conditions; they also know the different towns they work in. They can guide you toward – or away from – certain properties based on what they learn about you, your family, your lifestyle, your wants & needs.
The buyer consultation is not only for the agent to learn about you but it is your opportunity to interview an agent and learn more about them. Buying a home is a major life event, probably your most expensive purchase, and it’s important to partner with someone who instills trust and confidence. Use this meeting to ensure your selected agent listens to you, knows the local market in the towns you are searching in and can effectively negotiate with the seller. If you didn’t know, there is no cost to you, as a buyer, to be represented by an agent. The benefits of hiring an agent are immeasurable and you want to feel comfortable with the person speaking on your behalf. After this meeting, both you and the agent should have greater clarity around what you really want in a neighborhood and a home, helping focus your search.
