Becky and her team can show you new homes and resale homes in Lake Arrowhead, including homes in both the “original” part of Lake Arrowhead and the “new” section of Lake Arrowhead.
After the initial MLS computer search for properties, Becky’s buyer agent can put your home search in the MLS system as a permanent ongoing search, and e-mail you all new listings meeting your criteria the same day they go into the computer, giving you the first chance to see homes that are new on the market, before they are picked over. Ask us about this “Client Gateway” service we offer our buyer clients.
Becky’s buyer agents do research to help you make a more informed decision:
- Find out how much the seller paid when they bought the property
- Find out how much the seller owes on the property
- Estimate the length of time the home has been on the market
- Calculate the market value of the home, based on comparable sales
When you commit to working exclusively with Becky’s team, you are essentially saying you value their time and professional expertise, and want them to actively work for you, searching for that perfect property. A buyer agent will search far and wide for the right property, because they know their time and effort will be rewarded when they find the right property for you. Essentially, your loyalty to a buyer agent means they are loyal to you – it is a two-way partnership that benefits both the buyer and the agent.
To enlist the help of a buyer agent, you must sign a buyer agency agreement. Georgia law prohibits real estate brokers from representing a buyer as a client without first entering into a written agreement with the buyer.
Part of the buyer agency agreement includes acceptance of another type of agency, known as dual agency, where the same agent or team represents both the buyer and seller. In that case, the agent must be fair and treat parties equally, not divulging any confidential information that would give one party an advantage over the other.
In virtually all real estate transactions in our market, there is no cost to the buyer to have an agent representing their interests—broker fees are typically paid by the seller.
