When you’re looking to buy a home, you may not know where to start, except perhaps the general area in which you want to live. You may be searching for your first home, or you might be looking for that perfect retirement spot, but whatever the case may be, it’s important to find a real estate agent who has your best interests at heart. At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS) in Lake Almanor, our agents have years of experience that they will put to use for you, no matter if you’re ready to buy your first home or your tenth.

Building a Relationship
As you go through the buying process, it’s important to build a relationship with your agent. You want to have an open line of communication with him or her, and he or she should be able to answer your questions when they arise. You’ll also want to find an agent who has a personality that gels with yours, since you’re going to be spending a lot of time together. You should feel comfortable around your agent, and know that he or she is going to be an advocate for you when it comes to talking to sellers, negotiating a purchase price, and everything else involved in a real estate transaction.
Testing Their Knowledge
When you choose an agent, it’s important to test his or her knowledge of the current real estate market. With so many neighborhoods in the Lake Almanor area, it’s important for an agent to know which homes are listed, what the current market value is, and what the competition is for the current inventory. If you’re going to be bidding against several other buyers for the same property, how is your agent going to give you the edge you need? If you have questions about mortgages or appraisals, how will he or she be able to help?
At BHHS, our agents have the knowledge and experience you need to feel comfortable about your home-buying process. We’ll make sure that you’re paired with an agent who will step up for you when you need it most, and who will be there to provide the guidance and assistance you need. On top of that, we also hope that you’ll build a relationship that last for many years!
