How Much Do I Have To Pay An Agent To Help Me Buy A House?

When it comes to buying a house, a lot of people have never experienced it before. So they don't know where to turn either.

They usually pick up the computer and start googling the first steps to buy a house.

To be fair, during the average lifespan of a person they only buy a house 3-4 different times.

So to say that the average person understands the process would be a stretch. Only people in the real estate industry would know the ins and outs of buying and selling a home.

It can be a very scary experience buying a house if you have never been through it.

I remember when I bought my first house in Hamilton. Our budget was a whopping $185K and we found the perfect house but it was at an outrageous price of $245K.

Me being on the frugal side was nervous about buying outside our budget.

However my brother pushed it to go after it and we were about to negotiate the purchase price down to $225K on the east side of Hamilton.

Today as I look back on that situation, I'm glad that my brother pushed me to buy that house because it tripled in value.

I had no idea what I was doing or if it was going to be a failure.

I didn't even know where to start. I connected with a local realtor in Hamilton that helped us the entire step of the way.

The Hamilton Realtor prepared several listings for us to go see about 8 different properties within our budget. And just a couple outside our budget.

She pointed out all the pros and cons of each property as we walked through it.

With our background in construction, we were able to quickly add up all the costs. This helped us make a very informed decision.

When buying a property a realtor has to do a lot to help their client make the right decision.

Sometimes it feels like you are really being taken advantage of because you never actually pay your agent when buying a property.
This comes from the listing agent.
It never costs you as the buyer to have an agent work on your behalf.

They’re working relentlessly to keep you happy and make sure that you pass your name around. These are the characteristics of a top-quality real estate agent.

Make sure you spend a good amount of time interviewing different agents.

Get referrals from others that have used them in the past.

This is one of the most important methods of finding a top-quality real estate agent in the Hamilton area.
