Whether You Buy A House Or A Horse

It Should Be The Best Possible "Fit" For You

Horses and Pony

Just as you wouldn't purchase a horse without expert advice and guidance you should not consider purchasing a home without the assistance of a Realtor®. It makes no difference whether it is new construction or a resale home.

New Construction

As you go through the model home you may well be awed by all the "bells and whistles". However. some of them may only be available at an additional cost. More importantly, some of them may do little or nothing to increase your enjoyment or the future value of your home. That is when you need the advice of a REALTOR®.

If you tour the site and there are no homes being built it may be impossible to see where your home will be in relation to your neighbors. If you use the services of a REALTOR® he or she will be able to explain the offsets, setbacks and easements that could impact a lot negatively and help you make a wise decision. You certainly want to maximize your use of the lot and also have it be attractive to a buyer when you sell the home.

Resale Homes

As you can imagine resale homes come in a wide range of condition, decor and improvements (or lack of). The only thing certain is their location.

You and your REALTOR® can sit in the office, read the remarks and view the photos (both of which are the work of the listing agent), but the only way to decide which one of them is your choice is to tour the homes.

A professional home inspector will advise you as to a home's current condition as well as near term and long term requirements. However, it is the REALTOR® who can recommend which changes will impact on the future marketability of the home. Most experienced agents will also be able to give you the names of several reputable, licensed contractors

Conclusion

There is no one more qualified than a REALTOR® to give you information about home values in the area and information about commuting, shopping and recreational resources. Your agent can also direct you to the appropriate resource if you want information about schools and crime statistics.

People will go to a doctor, mechanic, dentist, etc, but they think they can buy/sell a house without any help.

Karen I could hardly get beyond the horses they are so beautiful.  Your post made me think of a couple I was helping to find the right house and after each showing she would say " I don't feel it," the husband on the other hand was in love with all the properties.

WOW! Those are some lovely horses, and I thought at first you were promoting a Horse property, but you nailed it with why consumers need to have a professional REALTOR, "Experience is Priceless".

You are Art have a Great Evening!
