Selecting A Realtor

It is fair to say that, after looking through the financial aspects and  the overview to the buying process, it would be beneficial to have a Las Cruces REALTOR to guide you through the home buying process. Pease allow us to show you what a good Las Cruces REALTOR can do for you.

It's critical that you make the right decision about who will handle what is probably the single largest financial investment you will ever make.

Despite what you may think, not all Real Estate Agents are the same. In Las Cruces real estate, as in life, not all things are created equal. You want to ensure that you get the best representation for your needs. 

You should select your REALTOR as you would any other Professional. You get the best results from an Expert - a Specialist. You want the REALTOR with superior credentials, experience, and knowledge.You want, and you deserve an Agent that provides true PREMIER SERVICE. Be sure your Las Cruces REALTOR is committed to providing the highest quality of service, and will back that commitment with a written Quality Service Guarantee, and will Guarantee to communicate with you regularly, and be consistent, reliable, and responsive. In addition you should be able to cancel your contract at any time if you are dissatisfied with the Service you are receiving.

Be sure that your Realtor is your "BUYER'S REPRESENTATIVE." This tells you that you that you will be working with an Agent who is committed ONLY to your best interests.

If the seller has an agent helping them, then the best way to be certain that someone is working in your best interests is by hiring your own Buyer's Representative to represent YOU.

All Realtors have a duty to provide you with care, confidentiality, full disclosure, show you available homes, point out the property's features, provide financing information, and submit the offer to purchase.

 BUT, a Las Cruces Buyer's Reprsentative if they have the knowledge, can disclose to you other valuable information such as:

  • The seller's reason for selling, and their timetable
  • How long the home has been on the market
  • Any previous offers and counteroffers for the property
  • The Strengths and weaknesses of the property.
  • AND the proper price for the property

Your Buyer's Representative works for you, the buyer, and has your best interest in mind throughout the entire Las Cruces real estate process. A real Buyer's Representative is not influenced by any seller, builder, or by any incentives to sell you a specific home. You and your wants and needs come first.

  • If you have chosen well, you can consider your Buyer's Representative as yourTrusted Advisor.   You can feel secure asking for advice and assistance, because they will always act in YOUR best interest, and use their specialized knowledge and training to assist you throughout the complex process of home buying. After carefully evaluating your specific goals, they will coninuously search for any and all properties the meet your wants and needs.

  • Once you have found the home you want to buy, the next critical task is to prepare an offer to purchase that represents the most favorable price and terms for you. As Skilled Negotiators,  a good Buyer's Agent will  apply their knowledge and experience, and vigorously work with seller and the seller's agent to get you the lowest price, best terms, and the best financing possible.

  • Your agent's job is not done until you have moved into your new home. The Buyer's Representative must be an  Expert Facilitator.  There needs to be a dedicated Transaction Coordinator to assure you that,  from contract to closing, your transaction will proceed smoothly, with no loose ends, and result in a successful closing and a smooth transition into your new home.

It is important to note that compensation for the Buyer's Representative is almost always a cost paid for by the seller. Whether a home is for sale by the owner, or a builder, or is listed through a contract with Seller's Real Estate Agent, the seller bears the cost of the Buyer's Representative.   Because the seller pays the commission, you can have your own skilled professional representative at no cost to you.   

In our current Buyer's market, having your own REALTOR REPRESENTATIVE has the potential to result in a transaction that is extremely beneficial to you. You maximize the opportunities that are available for buyer in this current Real Estate Market. With a Buyer's Representative, you should get the home of your dreams at a price and terms that substantially exceeds all of your expectations.

Whomever you choose to represent you, make sure that you have selected a Las Cruces REALTOR that you trust, and who, you believe has expertise, that will provide you with the service and results that you expect and deserve.
