The Importance of a Buyer’s Agent
A buyer's agent works exclusively for YOU to protect your interests and ensure you have all the information you need to make the best possible decisions when buying a home. Our agents are experts in the Asheville market and will help you:
FIND A HOME
We’ll start with a personal guided tour of the Asheville area and homes for sale, then research the properties you're considering, including culling information about the lot, deed, permit, previously sold pricing, and other details the seller's agent won't provide. Inventory is low in Asheville, and good homes are going quick—we’ll make sure you have the most up-to-date information available, so when the perfect house comes along, you’re ready!
NEGOTIATE THE OFFER
Before making an offer, we will check selling prices of comparable homes in the neighborhood, and review all disclosures about the home with you. We’ll then work with you to write the offer with terms that are favorable to you as well as attractive to the seller. We want you to get the home you want at the price you want.
COORDINATE THE PURCHASE
Once your offer is accepted, we’ll help with all aspects of your home purchase: From scheduling and reviewing the appropriate home inspections to coordinating with your mortgage broker and settlement agent, we’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure everything gets done correctly and in a timely manner.
EVALUATE ENERGY-EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS
We can also assist you in obtaining a property energy assessment, helping you to understand what, if any, improvements should be made and connecting you with the Western North Carolina Green Building Council’s Green Gauge program, which uses a simple tool for assessing home efficiency and sustainability.
AND ALL THIS COMES AT NO COST TO YOU, THE BUYER!
The best part is, the seller pays the buyer’s agent’s fees, so you don't have to as long as you purchase a listed property.
