The home buying process
Your understanding of the purchasing process is invaluable and deserves your special attention. For your benefit, it is essential that your First Weber agent ask questions to understand your needs, wants, and ability to purchase.
Your First Weber Agent will assist you in selecting homes for viewing in accordance with your needs. Please feel free to inspect all aspects of a home during the showing and make notes regarding each home.
Feedback is essential. Specific comments help your First Weber Agent determine exactly what you’re looking for and should result in finding a suitable home and making an offer.
After an offer is written, your First Weber Agent will contact the listing agent who will present your offer to the sellers.
The sellers have the following alternatives:
Once the offer is accepted, your First Weber Agent will notify you immediately.
It is extremely important that you apply for a loan immediately after your offer is accepted. Your First Weber Agent can recommend several lenders for you to contact. The lender may require a loan application fee to be used toward a credit check, appraisal, etc.
In order to speed the process along, have your bank account and credit card numbers available as these will need to be verified by your lender. Your First Weber Agent will check with your lender throughout the processing of your loan to ensure things are progressing smoothly.
Once your loan is approved, the time and place for closing, as agreed upon in the offer, will be scheduled.
Wisconsin Agency Law Provides for Different Types of Relationships Between Buyer and REALTOR®
In the traditional buying process, a real estate agent working with a buyer without a Buyer Agency contract is, by law, working as an agent of the seller. An agent working without a Buyer Agency contract must still be fair in his/her dealings, but is prohibited by law from giving the buyer critical advice such as a professional opinion of a price or in suggesting negotiation strategies.
Buyer Representation (Buyer Agency) was created in response to buyers’ desires to have agents work in their best interests as opposed to the sellers’ best interests. First Weber was one of the first brokerages to embrace buyer agency and First Weber agents are encouraged to work as Buyer Agents for buyers if at all possible.
With Designated Agency, a buyer under Buyer Agency with a broker continues to receive full client services even when purchasing a property listed with another agent in the same brokerage. First Weber Group, as a full service broker to both buyers and sellers, offers Designated Agency to better serve both buyers and sellers.
