Can we take the stress out of home buying?

The answer is probably not all of it. Buying a home is an exciting time, especially if you are a first time home buyer.

However, the stress can be managed!

This is where your real estate agent (buyer's agent) comes into the picture. Once you have established your budget and received your mortgage pre-approval, you will look at prospective properties. And look.

[According to the National Association of Realtors "2009 Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers, Florida Report," the typical homebuyer searches for twelve weeks and views 15 properties when buying in Florida.]

Your real estate agent can help you look objectively at prospective properties that meet your budget and needs.

Sure your real estate agent wants you to buy a house but they want you to buy the right house! Once you have found the "right house" your buyer's agent will be there to guide you through the transaction.

And as a buyer you do not pay for the services - sellers do!

In Brevard County, Florida I would welcome a chance to work with you as you search for that new home.

I want to help you find the right home!
