Finding an Agent

Ann Arbor Condo Buyer Information

Buying a Condo requires many difficult decisions. Make sure your Realtor is a top local expert.

With today's real estate market conditions, it's more important than ever to have a professional Realtor who has a grasp of market statistics and market knowledge.   A good buyer's agent can guide a buyer through the roadblocks of the market.   Remember that the listing agent is representing the seller.

In the current market it is very important that you have the necessary information regarding the trends in different neighborhoods. Looking for a home goes way beyond looking at real estate websites. Variables such as new construction in particular price ranges, inventory and absorption levels, time of year, employment levels, etc., all have an impact on the market. Working with an agent who understands these variables makes a huge difference when it comes to putting a purchase offer together.

A good Buyer's Agent will have strong knowledge of local real estate market conditions, be prepared to deliver a high standard of service to clients, and be available to you. This is where the experience and negotiating skills of The Bouma Group will truly benefit you.

Here are just a few of the advantages of working with a Bouma Group professional when buying an Ann Arbor Condo:

    * They are experienced negotiators who will manage your offers and counter-offers.
    * They are familiar with the complexes and neighborhoods and can give you information on local real estate values, taxes, utility costs, services and amenities.
    * They are familiar with the entire home purchasing process and explain the options available to you.
    * They can pinpoint condos that fit your needs and dismiss those that do not, saving your time.
    * They have exclusive access to the Multiple Listing Service. The MLS alerts agents and condo buyers to all properties for sale as they come on the market. This not only saves you the time of driving around or surfing the net, but in a highly active market, it can also save you the frustration of losing out on a home.
    * They know the potential problem areas in a condo or complex, including future development, traffic patterns, history of the builder and can guide you in the right direction.
    * They won't charge you a penny. Sellers most often provide commissions to both Realtors involved in the sale of their home in order to attract buyers. Choose the superior expertise and negotiating power of The Bouma Group without paying for it.
