Coral Gables Homes for Sale

For anyone planning on purchasing real estate in South Florida, it is often a prudent idea to enlist the services of a buyer’s agent, especially when a first time home buyer, or a first time Miami home buyer. Most people begin their search with some light property shopping online and wonder why they should hire a real estate agent at all. “It can’t be that difficult an ordeal to buy any one of these Coral Gables homes for sale. Can it?”

We have begun to notice at many showing appointments and open houses that buyers are regularly showing up without the assistance of an agent. We don’t mind because we can to help anyone interested in the market, but it can often leave you curious, what actually causes a buyer to enter the market on their without an agent? It just seems like a risky proposition, there are several obstacles that can befall a home buyer, especially when not possessing the know-how or the experience to know how to navigate the real estate market.

Hire an Agent before Purchasing Coral Gables Homes for Sale

First and foremost, hiring an agent is a prudent idea simply based on the fact that you’re likely going to be paying for their services, regardless of whether to not you’ve actually utilized their services. The costs of hiring a buyer’s agent are already included in an MLS agreement when buying a home before a listing is ever even uploaded.

Once you begin looking at Coral Gables homes for sale, the agent that will be showing you a property is THE agent for the home. What this means is, if you haven’t hired an agent by that point, you cannot hire one when the buying situation becomes more complicated on a home that you’ve decided you’re interested in. The agent that shows you the home the first time is entitled to the commission, and though it would be nice for agents to offer their services to you gratis, it is certain that this is an impossible outcome.

Buyers also often seem to think that you need to meet with individual agents for specific listings. In South Florida, is an agent is a licensed realtor, they have access to any listing contained in the MLS. When you hire a licensed agent, they are able to set up appointments and access the listing for you without having to call multiple agents.

Why Hire an Agent?

To put it simply, hiring an experienced and qualified agent familiar with Coral Gables homes for sale is not only vital to a smooth process to closing but can save you thousands, even tens of thousands on the home of your dreams. Throughout the entire purchasing process, a real estate agent will be the negotiator on your behalf and primary consult, regardless if making an initial offer on the home, dealing with the circumstances of a possible renegotiation, or after the cancellation of a deal after a troubling home appraisal. It is important for any home buyer to have someone that not only they can trust and confide in, but also that can keep a deal together from start to finish.

Additionally, the sales agent for a piece of property is not going to be your friend, and you don’t pay for their services, so, therefore, they won’t be sending any buying tips your way to help you find the most shrewd deal on their piece of property. After all, their interests are in direct confliction with yours, and they work for the seller of the home. The more they make on a home the happier the seller is, and the higher commission they are able to achieve. Pricing in the current financial market is critical, even more so when you consider that every property is sold twice. The home will be sold once to you the buyer, and then to your bank or financial institution.

Finally, when considering Coral Gables homes for sale, or any Miami area homes for that matter, it is important to understand your own personal time table, and the timeline of you family if you are going to be moving them as well. Regardless of when you are attempting to move into a new home, be it at the start of a new school year, or some other time to relocate for a new job, it is necessary to have a plan of action in place. The entire process of buying a home and then moving can be incredibly emotionally taxing. With a real estate agent at your sides that you’ve hired to put the interests of you and your family first and foremost, they are able to put pressure on the seller to close a deal within a specific timeframe. They may not be able to set a specific date for your move, but having a window for a close date is far more advantageous than nothing at all.
