This is our opportunity to get to know each other, talk about your needs, review the buying process and establish a business relationship. You will want to bring along your pre-approval letter and a list of the things you are looking for in your new home.
The first time we meet in person I will ask you to sign a Consumer Notice. This document is not a contract but rather a disclosure required by PA State Law to help consumers make informed decisions about the business relationships they may have with real estate brokers and salespersons.
We will also discuss the Buyer’s agency agreement. This is a relationship where a licensed real estate agent, upon entering into a written agreement, works for and represents the interest of the buyer. Buyer’s agency is established by signing the Buyer Broker Business Relationship Agreement. This document provides for a mutually beneficial business relationship in which you, as the buyer get the benefits outlined above. This same document also outlines how I get paid (usually as a percentage of the purchase price) for the time and work I do for you, which considering that real estate is my full-time career, makes me pretty happy.
I will also ask you to fill out an information sheet and your wish list. We’ll set up your search and get you started looking for your new home. If you are a buyer from out-of-town our initial meeting can be done over the phone.
I am fully committed to all federal, state and local fair housing laws and provides nondiscriminatory service to all consumers regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, handicap, age, ancestry or disability.
