Are you looking for a new home in New York? Like many of your fellow house hunters you are starting your search on line and that's a very good place to start. I encourage all my clients to spend time looking at information about the areas they are considering moving to and to look at the on line listings of houses to get a basic idea of the housing costs in the area. But have you ever bought a house before? If so, and you are thinking about moving again, I will bet it was a while ago. So when I suggest there are a lot of things you might not know about searching for and buying a house I don't think you will argue with me.
Sure you can go from viewing those on line listings and call the listing agent to view the houses you like but there is a problem with that strategy, the listing agents job is to get the best possible offer for the sellers. They will not be looking out for your best interests. They won't be able to help you out with evaluating the house, comparing it to others on the market currently, or negotiating with the sellers to get they house for the lowest price with with best terms for you. What you need is a Buyer's Agent. In New York the Buyer's Agent is described on the the Agency Disclosure as " A buyer’s agent is an agent who is engaged by a buyer to represent the buyer’s interests. The buyer’s agent does this by negotiating the purchase of a home at a price and on terms acceptable to the buyer."
If you are looking for a house in the Greater Hudson Valley or Lower Catskill region of New York I would love to help you in your search. As a Buyer's Agent I can set up a search web page for you, arrange for tours of homes you would like to see, and look at the homes with an experienced eye while looking out for your best interests. Please let me know what you are looking for in terms of housing and budget and I will send you your personal web-based search organizer today. Looking forward to hearing from you and good luck with your search.
