If you’re like many people, you’ve already looked at plenty of lofts for sale in DTLA – and you’ve found them all online. The pictures are great, you can get all a home’s specs (who knew you could fit 3 bathrooms into a 1,000-square-foot space?!), and you can see if a home is within your budget with just a few clicks of the mouse.
But if you pick up the phone and call the listing agent, you could be in for a rough ride.
You need your own real estate agent – one who’s only representing you and looking out for your best interests. Here’s why.
5 Reasons You Absolutely NEED a Real Estate Agent to Buy a Loft in DTLA
While it looks like a great idea to call the agents who are listed on the lofts you want to see, it’s not. The reason isn’t that they’re not amazing agents – they most likely are! It’s that when a seller hires a real estate agent to sell his or her home, the agent then has a duty to look out for the seller’s best interests.
And that means if a buyer comes along, the agent’s primary duty is to make sure that the sellers get the highest possible price.
You need a real estate agent who’s representing you in the deal for these reasons:
- Your agent’s expertise will go toward helping you get the best price for a home
- Your agent can connect you with other, similar lofts so you can make the best choice
- Your agent will negotiate hard for you
- Your agent’s primary duty is to you
- Your agent can give you advice about the whole process, from start to finish
#1. Your agent’s expertise will go toward helping you get the best price for a home.
Because having your own agent means having someone in your corner, working for your best interests, you know that he’ll help you find exactly what you’re looking for within your price range.
#2. Your agent can connect you with other, similar lofts so you can make the best choice.
Your agent will search high and low to find you the right home – so even if the first few you really liked don’t work out, he can use his industry connections and find homes that will be a great fit.
#3. Your agent will negotiate hard for you.
When it’s time to make an offer or respond to a counteroffer, your agent will work with the seller’s agent to help get you the best possible price for the loft.
#4. Your agent’s primary duty is to you.
Your agent doesn’t have to worry about keeping a promise to sellers to get them the highest amount of money. Instead, he works for you – and he’ll help you get the best price, the best terms and the best concessions.
#5. Your agent can give you advice about the whole process, from start to finish.
Your agent will be there for you every step of the way to make sure your whole transaction is seamless.
