Why Do You Need a Professional On Your Team When Buying a Home in Cabin Branch Clarksburg MD?


This could be a good reason..


I listed a 4-year-old house in Germantown MD 

I was representing the seller as he was selling because he had a job change.

We found a buyer and they were doing the normal routine during the home inspection. Everything was going fine until the home inspector crawled up to the attic with his flashlight....


"There is no insulation in this attic!" 

He announced to no one in particular


As I quickly responded. ." you mean it needs MORE insulation?"

"NO!" he yelled back.

"There is not an ounce of insulation in this attic!" 


I was silent for a few seconds as I looked puzzled towards my client who was there as well.

"Are you sure? " I asked as I started climbing up the ladder to see it with my own eyes.

Yep, sure enough, there was not even a dust mite of insulation in this attic. it was clean as a whistle!

"No wonder this house was so cold in the winters " shuddered my seller as of matter fact

"You lived in this house for 4 years with no insulation in your attic?!

Didn't you inspect this when you first purchased your home from the builder? I asked incredulously...

"No, I though they inspected the house for me before they gave me the keys"....answered the $600 per month heating bill dweller.


Guess what!

The builder will only do what city inspector expects them to do. .they missed it and they sold you a brand new townhouse. .and somehow they forgot to put the insulation!


Later that day, I called the builder for my client and demanded them to come in and FINISH BUILDING THIS HOUSE 4 YEARS LATER!

If you are considering buying a home in Cabin Branch Clarksburg MD..

This is why you may need a professional on your team when buying a home


Many people wonder whether they should hire a real estate professional to assist them in buying their dream home or if they should first try to do it on their own. In today’s market: you need an experienced professional!


You Need an Expert Guide if You Are Traveling a Dangerous Path


The field of real estate is loaded with land mines; you need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist. Finding a home that is priced appropriately and is ready for you to move into can be tricky. An agent listens to your wants and needs, and can sift through the homes that do not fit within the parameters of your “dream home.”

A great agent will also have relationships with mortgage professionals and other experts that you will need in securing your dream home. 


You Need a Skilled Negotiator


In today’s market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars. Each step of the way – from the original offer to the possible renegotiation of that offer after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal – you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes.

Realize that when an agent is negotiating their commission with you, they are negotiating their own salary; the salary that keeps a roof over their family’s head; the salary that puts food on their family’s table. If they are quick to take less when negotiating for themselves and their families, what makes you think they will not act the same way when negotiating for you and your family?

If they were Clark Kent when negotiating with you, they will not turn into Superman when negotiating with the buyer or seller in your deal. 


Bottom Line

Famous sayings become famous because they are true. You get what you pay for. Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money…not cost you money.
