REAL ESTATE SERVICES
We will help you navigate the Real Estate Market
Buying and selling a home can be both exciting and stressful. What eliminates stress? Good information and proper guidance. This is where good agents come in. Our role is about providing quality information that allows for the best possible outcome and decision.
Buying a home in the Greater Baton Rouge Area
When we work with you to buy a home, you can expect reliable information and experienced negotiating skills. We will help you think about the purchase more like a business transaction. Becoming emotionally attached to a home you may want to buy is natural and normal. That’s why we’re here. We help our clients to decide if the property is priced correctly and meets all your lifestyle and budget needs.
You can expect detailed, accurate, and transparent information that will help you make the best decisions and provide for the best negotiating position.
We help our buyer clients by the following:
Identify a good property. When you know the market like we do it’s easy to scan through dozens of listings and pick out the ones that probably won’t be available the next time you look. We can educate buyers on things like: what you should expect given a certain area/development/price-point, quality of construction, supply and demand, and functional issues to name a few. We’ve seen good ideas and bad ones when it comes to construction. Many buyers have a very general idea of what they want and it Is our job to help them figure out what home is the best fit for them.
Research History of Property. More and more often we hear from consumers who never realized that the home they bought was on the market previously or there was something that was not disclosed to them at the time of their purchase. Information is available regarding history you just have to look for it. That’s what good agents do. We provide all the good and bad information about a property before our clients make an offer and get invested into the transaction.
Provide Accurate Range of Value Prior to making offer. To some, a good deal is simply getting a few dollars knocked off the asking price. But what if it wasn’t priced correctly to begin with? Unfortunately, the formula for estimating value used by many agents isn’t that reliable. Our buyers are going to be well-informed regarding the topic of value and they’ll know when a good deal truly exist.
Represent and protect interest at all times. The only thing we do aggressively is represent. In fact, that’s the only role of the buyer’s agent is to represent interest. But keep in mind, not all agents have the same tools in their toolbox to do so. All too often we see liability given away on contracts. Not on purpose of course, but accidentally and from a lack of knowledge about contractual rights and responsibilities. A savvy agent knows that sometimes the other party may be looking for either leverage or a way out entirely. And they’ve planned accordingly. Their client wins.
Selling a home in the Greater Baton Rouge Area
We understand the market and use that experience to establish an accurate asking price for your home. The square footage of a home isn’t the only indicator of value. Supply and demand, quality of construction, condition, lot size, and amenities can all affect value. Understanding how these factors influence the sale of your property is imperative to get you the best price.
We are told by sellers often that the information we supply them differs from what they either thought or have been told by others. And we don’t doubt this.
Deciding on a representative should be an important one. This is your information source, your communication source, and your negotiation source. Different agents have different skills, experience, and contractual knowledge and they sometimes go about their roles in vastly different ways. We believe in a no-nonsense, all business approach with emphasis given to providing accurate and intelligent data regarding value and careful attention to contractual rights, responsibilities, opportunity and risks. Bottom line is the advice you’re given can either cost or make you money and can either cost or salvage a sale.
