BUYING

Do I Really Need To Use A REALTOR® ?

You can do your home search by yourself, but why should you?  Some buyers spend endless hours pouring through classified ads, searching the internet, driving all over town, and viewing dozens of unsuitable homes, simply because they haven’t connected with a Realtor.  With Buddy at your side and as your exclusive buyer agent, finding the perfect home is easier and faster!

Some buyers think that if they have several agents looking for homes on their behalf, they’ll find a home more quickly.  However, like most relationships, the buyer-agent relationship thrives on loyalty, trust and communication.  By working exclusively with one agent as your representative, you’ll improve both the process and the results!

How do you go about selecting the right Realtor?

  • Ask friends, family members, neighbors or co-workers for personal referrals
  • Get more background information from Realtor websites
  • Conduct a phone or personal interview and trust your intuition
  • Share with your Realtor as much information as possible about your lifestyle,tastes, needs, and dreams for your new home
  • Focus your search on only a few geographic areas

Chemistry is important, as are the proper credentials.  Above all, you'll want an experienced agent who has the recourses of a leading real estate firm behind her – a firm such as Russell & Jeffcoat Realtors, Inc., the #1 company in the Midlands of South Carolina (with 3 times the market share of the next leading competitor).
