Why Choose The Five Star Berkshire Hathaway Realtor Team?

All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. Five Star Berkshire Hathaway REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. Five Star Berkshire Hathaway REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices REALTOR®.

A dozen more reasons to use Berkshire Hathaway HomeService's Top Team:

1) Top Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Agents, can help you determine your buying power -- that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Agent / Realtor some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders -- banks and mortgage companies -- offer limited choices.

Top LA Real Estate Agents can provide local community information on utilities, zoning. schools, etc. There are two things you'll want to know. First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?

4) An Experienced Five Star Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Agent can help you negotiate. There are myriad negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your Real Estate Agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.

5) A Licensed Five Star Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Agent can provide due diligence during the evaluation of the property. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few.  Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Agents can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the title of the property. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access.

10) Five Star Real Estate Agents / Realtors with Berkshire Hathaway know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts.

12) Experienced Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Agents can help close the sale of your home. Between the initial sales agreement and closing (or settlement), questions may arise.
