Home buyers need agent committed to their Johnson County KS search

There is no better feeling then when I help a buyer find the absolute perfect home in Johnson County Kansas but that feeling can quickly turn into a punch in the gut when you find out that 3 other potential buyers think it is also the perfect home for them. With the sudden surge in homes sales and a large decrease in the number of good homes for sale, you may find it extremely difficult to find that perfect home and even more difficult to get your offer accepted over several competing bids.

Now more than ever it is imperative to find an agent who is 100% committed to your home search. The best homes are coming to market and going under contract within hours, will you ever get a chance to see that house? What about the houses that never reach the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), how will you ever find out about those houses? The real estate agent you choose really makes the difference.

A really good real estate agent has systems in place to make sure you find out about new properties immediately. A really good real estate agent has contacts and working relationships with other top agents to find out about properties not yet on the market that meet your needs. A really good real estate agent puts your home search at the forefront and finds a way to get you to the best properties before other competing buyers. Most importantly a really good agent you will not only find you the property but will know how to get your offer accepted in a competitive situation.

A really good real estate agent has negotiating strategies that the average agent has never even thought of. They know ways to enhance your offer and make it appeal to a seller without just backing up a dump truck full of money and say here. 

Found a really good real estate agent? Ask the these questions:

  1. How many buyer and sellers are you currently working with?
  2. How much time do you have to devote to my home search?
  3. What systems do you have in place to help us find the best properties?
  4. What strategies to you use to help get our offer accepted in a competitive market?
