I have a closing this week and recently met this couple at another listing of mine which they were out-bidden for then in turn asked for assistance in helping them with the purchase for their 1st home.  From the start, I knew they would benefit from my services.  Working with first time homebuyers always reminds me of when I first bought my initial property and how many questions I would have throughout the day and all the details there are in the process that I tried to embrace.  It may really be overwhelming if you try to do it on your own.  From negotiations, inspections, insurance information, escrow, appraisal, taxes, the details around a successful closing are plentiful and to manage your comfort level an experienced buyer’s agent is just what the doctor ordered!  I think the idea of saving money by not have a realtor is so overrated.  My clients would not even have considered this property since they thought they could not afford it when with my advice it was a total possibility.  For sale by owner or trying to purchase a property without a buyer’s agent may backfire and have the opposite effect to what was intended to do which is save money.  If you are on the buy side you may not even get to the point to save money since you don’t end up even to purchase it if someone else beats you to it!
