Buying a new home is likely the largest purchase you will ever make, until you buy your next home. You should be represented by the most knowledgeable, and most experienced agent you can find. Plus, your representative must be a skilled negotiator to help you achieve the home buying results you want.

Don’t rely on an assistant agent or less experienced Buyer’s agent. Work with the bosses. Work with the best. Work with the B’s.

Here is how the B’s can help you buy the home of your dreams:
1. First, the B’s listen, really listen, about what you want in a home, where you want it to be and how much you want to pay. They will understand your specific needs and wants and offer possible options. They create a custom map and explore various commuting options. They give advice on schools and neighborhoods. Provide books and brochures on the whole buying process. Provide links to useful Internet sites. The B’s will help create a home buying game plan with you.

2. The B’s assist you in determining the amount that you can afford (pre-qualify) and recommend lenders who offer many types of mortgage programs, from conventional loans to FHA loans. They will go over the tax advantages of home ownership, and recommend insurance companies that save money on home and auto insurance.

3. The B’s arrange tours of homes so you can see up to 15 homes in a few hours. The B’s will set up an efficient itinerary and set up all the appointments so you can compare a lot of homes in a short amount of time. The average buyer sees only 9 homes before making a purchasing decision. The B’s recommend seeing at least 20. You can do this in just one weekend. This way you can feel more confident in your purchase.

4. Once you have found a home you like, the B’s will help you analyze the prices and decide how much to offer for the property. They will show you the sale prices of recently sold properties that are most similar to the one you are considering. They will advise you of the neighborhoods market conditions and trends, such as the supply and demand, average days on market to sell and inventory levels of like properties. They will advise you of the discounts at which similarly priced area homes are selling. Plus, if the home is new construction they will advise you about specific discounts and agent incentives of other homebuilders in the area.

5. The B’s help you identify any problems or issues prior to making an offer to purchase the property and find out as much as possible about the sellers and their situation. They help plan the negotiating strategy.

6. The B’s advise you on structuring an appropriate offer to purchase the selected property. Sometimes you need special stipulations to be added to the contract.

7. They will complete all the necessary paper work for your signature to make an offer on the property and then they will handle all contact with the seller’s agent during the negotiation period. The B’s will help you negotiate, so that the final contract includes your best possible terms and conditions. Contracts are full of complicated terms and clauses that can greatly affect your future life in your new home. The B’s will give you the full benefit of their real estate knowledge, experience and training. They are very persistent and will try every possible angle to help you get your home.

8. Once you and the seller have agreed to every element of the 10 to 20-page contract for sale, the B’s will coordinate the efforts of the mortgage company, title company and home inspection company. They will review the title commitment, survey.

9. The B’s will make arrangements for the inspection and be there with you to review the results, review the inspection report, write up inspection amendment, and negotiate inspection amendment. Most problems can be fixed with enough time and money. Some items aren’t worth dealing with. The B’s can help you analyze what is significant and what isn’t.

10. The B’s recommend potential repairmen if needed to bid on or complete necessary repairs. They can arrange to meet various servicemen at the home to get bids and quotes on repairs.

11. They assist in securing appropriate financing for your dream home. The B’s can recommend several lenders who will show you several options. The B’s help getting the lender all the information they need to get you approved.

12. They generate three copies of contract and get original signatures from all parties. This takes some running around, but the B’s are used to faxing and emailing to get all the original signatures.

13. The B’s make sure you receive the termite inspection, property disclosure, and any covenants or condo documents.

14. They provide a list of potential qualified vendors (e.g. movers, title companies, carpenters, etc.) if these services are needed.

15. They help prepare for closing and switching over utilities. There are all sorts of things that can happen to unravel the transaction, but the B’s job is to stay on top of it and handle any problems along the way.

16. They do whatever it takes to get everyone all the necessary documents to ensure a timely closing.

17. The B’s attend final walk thru before closing and make sure all repairs were done and no problems have developed since the contract date.

18. The B’s will review the HUB-1 financial disbursement summary with you to make sure everything is according to the contract. They will also make sure you know the way to the closing and what to bring to closing.

19. Then the B’s will even go to the closing with you to answer questions and to make sure that everything goes smoothly and as expected. Attend closing and help celebrate. There should be no surprises. If something comes up, do what’s necessary to take care of it.

20. There is also an after closing follow up just to make sure you are in your new home and all is well.
