Busted! Don’t Believe These Home-buying Myths!
Are you in the market for a new home? You may have already started your research and come across some conflicting information. It can be tough to sift through all of the advice and even more challenging to separate fact from myth.
To help you out, Shelley Russell Mortgage Agent, has debunked three of the most widely believed home-buying myths. Read on to learn more!
Myth 1: If you work with the listing agent on a home, you save money as they will cut their commissions
This is a commonly shared idea in the home-buying process. Clients then tend to pay more than they would have had they had their own representation with their own realtor. The myth is that the selling agent will offer a better deal. Statistically, this isn’t so!
Myth 2: When buying a home, you pay the realtor commission
Not so! The seller is paying the commission regardless, so it is wise to have your own representation so that your needs and wants are covered by your realtor, who knows you and is working with your best interests in mind.
Myth 3: You can’t have a condition of finance
The market is changing, and there is now an opportunity to add conditions to an offer that are to protect YOU. So, do your homework, consult an expert, and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want or need in a real estate transaction.
