Buying a Home with My Place Realty, Inc.
When you choose a My Place Realty, Inc. REALTOR®, it is important to remember you are HIRING a Realtor who will be representing you, negotiating for you, and will be giving you the information you need to make a good buying decision.
Our REALTORS® have over 38 years of combined experience. We are all skilled in client representation for real estate selling and purchasing, negotiation, and the processes the home buyer goes through.
Our Agents are available to show you homes and are able to do the paperwork and negotiate for you without delays when you are ready to purchase.
Designations, such as GRI®, ABR®, and CRS®, which require that real estate professionals take additional, specialized real estate training, are held by only about one quarter of real estate practitioners. Our agents have these and others, check with your individual agent on their current designations.
While it’s legal to represent both parties in a transaction, it’s important to understand where our obligations lie. We will explain the agency relationship to you and describe the rights of each party. It’s also possible to insist your agent represents you exclusively.
We can recommend service providers who can assist you in obtaining a mortgage, perform an inspection, make repairs, and offer suggestions for the any other item in the home buying process you need done. Keep in mind we will generally recommend more than one provider. While we generally DO NOT receive any compensation from any provider we will tell you if we do get compensated prior to you making your choice.
Our business philosophy is simple. Provide great service at a fair price. Only charge for the services provided. Provide clients with the information and tools to make an informed decision in their home buying experience. Our goal is to make the home buying experience easy. We promise to not hold up quick decision makers, nor to rush people who want more time to make a decision.
We will keep home buyers informed about new properties until a decision on a home is made. Then we will inform the buyer of the progress of the transaction as developments occur. We will help buyers get over the hurdles of the inspection, the financing, and all the other details that get taken care of to close the deal. To accomplish this we will use the techniques the client is comfortable with, ie. texting, emails, personal visit, etc.
We work when you don't, so we accept text messages, phone calls, emails, etc. 24/7/365. While we are not sitting by our phones and computers all the time, we do work hard to get to every call and message. If you are unable to reach, or have not heard back from, your selected agent within 24 hours please try again - technology does go awry at times and there are times when we are out of a coverage zone.
Upon request, any of our agents can give you referals from their past/present clients.
We do not charge an additional Administrative fee. Before you sign with anyone make sure you are not spending an additional $400+ to the REALTOR®/Broker.
You will get a good feel of whether or not you want to work with an agent when you look at a couple of houses. You typically will be asked to sign an "agency disclosure" with an agent when you look at your first house. This is not a contract, merely a disclosure and yo should not be afraid to sign it. However, once you sign a buyer’s "contract" you are locked in with that agent and brokerage.
We offer a performance guarantee. If you are not satisfied with our services, we are happy to sit down and discuss it with you. Buyer's contracts can be cancelled if you are unhappy, but it can be a hassle and some agents will charge you a fee to do so. We don't. Even after you sign a Buyer's contract, you can choose to work with another agent after your current contract is expired. Of course, we will do our best to try to adjust our performance to resolve any issues, but if we can't, we are happy to cancel the agreement.
It is important that you work with someone you trust. Buying a home is the largest purchase you are likely to make. You need to have someone in your corner who will stand with you throughout the process and help you to make decisions that are good for you. You may want to contact your agent after the deal is completed and you are moved in – it is so much easier to call someone you like and get along with rather than someone you don’t ever want to see again.
