So you want to buy a house. Looking online is a great place to start. It gives you a sense of what’s out there, what neighborhoods you think you like, and what homes cost. You decide to take a look at one or two of the listings, go online to contact the agent, and discover that your favorites are already under contract. That is a real scenario happening in the Baltimore area right now.
Trying to purchase your first home without a buyer’s agent can be an exercise in frustration. Licensed Realtors are aware of what is on the market, what is coming soon, and Non-MLS listings that you won’t know about.
When you hire a buyer’s agent like Whit Harvey, you are getting the benefit of his years of experience in the Baltimore market. He knows the neighborhoods, he knows the schools, and he sometimes even knows the neighbors!
When you enlist Whit as your representative he will ask you a hundred questions to help you determine your wants vs. your needs in your “dream” home. He will ask you to describe your ideal location, and can suggest additional neighborhoods of which you may unaware. That is the benefit of working with a Baltimore native.
Whit then gets to work finding you your perfect home and helping you position yourself to make the best offer possible in this competitive market.
Whit can guide you through the pre-approval process, making you an attractive buyer to sellers who will decide what offer to accept.
Once your offer is accepted, the Whit Harvey team will ensure that all documents are delivered on time, accompany you on inspections and advise you on the findings. They keep on top of the process and will accompany you to settlement to make sure there are no surprises at closing.
Don’t let your first home-buying experience be a stressful one. Whit can help.
