The 7 Most Important Members Of Your Home Buying Team

QuarterbackBuying a home is a team sport. If you plan on becoming a home buyer, then you need to understand that you are now the proud owner of a team, and it would be prudent to take the time to assemble the best personnel that are available. Fortunately, it is not as hard as you might think.

While I am certainly biased, I believe the most important player on the team is your real estate agent. The REALTOR® that you choose to work with is like the quarterback on a football team who must organize and guide the players to move to an objective.

Your real estate agent is that person in the home buying process. The alpha and the omega, your real estate agent works with you from the very beginning steps in the home buying process and all the way through to the closing when you become a proud new homeowner.

Because your real estate agent is with you for the duration, it is the real estate agent that you will lean on to help you assemble your best team. Key people that you will need include:

  • A mortgage lender if you are planning to finance the home
  • A real estate attorney or settlement agent to provide title insurance and closing work
  • A transaction coordinator to help keep all of the players (for both the buyer and seller teams)
  • A home inspector to help you evaluate the condition of your selected home
  • A property surveyor to identify the property boundaries, easements and conditions
  • The real estate broker at the company/agent that you've chosen - experience and systems matter to the smart homebuyer

Einstein Home Buyer

Home Buying For Smart People

A process designed to save you money when buying a home

Something tells us you’re just … well … smarter than most people looking to buy a home.

You’re not naive, you are looking for a house to call home, and you want to make sure that you love the home you buy, but also get a great value.

In other words, you don’t have to be an Einstein to “get” the home buying process. But you do have to be prepared.

We can prepare you

There are many other people that will be involved in the home buying process, and your real estate agent should be there to lead you through the decision making process.

It is important for you to understand that you only represent "one" real estate closing for the next few years to all of these service providers, your real estate agent might represent several transactions each month! That means they do not want to let your agent down ... which means they will not let you down.

Don't be quick to decide who the players need to be without first checking with your real estate agent. If the agent is any good, she or he will already have a team assembled to recommend to assist you. Use the volume power of the real estate agent to ensure that you get the best service and the best prices, and expect your great real estate agent to be checking to ensure that you do.
