Why Use an Experienced Buyer Agent When

Purchasing a Home?

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most people make during their lives, so it’s important to do it right – and that means tapping into the expertise of someone trained in the field: A Buyer Agent. 

You wouldn’t do your own dentistry or try to remove your own appendix; you’d turn to someone specially trained to do the job. The same holds true for a real estate transaction:  you want to be able to rely on someone with knowledge and skills you don’t have to ensure the result is a positive one. A Buyer Agent is your real estate “surgeon,” guiding you through the proper steps to purchasing the property you want with no unpleasant side effects.

Quick access to the MLS system.

We will see the listings posted on the Multiple Listing System (MLS) before they arrive in your inbox. They can stay ahead of the game and identify those properties that require quick action so you don’t lose out on a dream home. In a hot market, time matters.

A proactive approach.

The Nim Moussa Team will be out knocking on doors in desirable neighbourhoods, looking for opportunities that may not have appeared on MLS yet. They can alert prospective sellers that there are interested buyers just waiting for an opportunity to invest in the property. As the saying goes, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.”

Negotiating skills.

We negotiate for a living. Can you say the same? We know your needs and your limits, and we are skilled at assessing the seller’s perspective, too. Add to that our knowledge about the selling landscape in your market and you have an advocate who can help you reach your ultimate goal: obtaining your dream property while negotiating a deal that both parties view as a win-win situation.

The big picture.

We know their customers’ needs, wants and goals, both long- and short-term. While you may get excited by a property with all the bells and whistles, it’s our job to keep a level head and remind you that, for example, the property won’t appreciate enough during the three years you plan to keep it for you to pay the asking price. We aren’t swayed by the emotion and excitement you may feel for a property that doesn’t meet your needs. Consider your agent as a valuable sober second thought.

Knowledge of the landscape.

Would you want someone from Halifax to sell you a home in Vancouver? It’s unlikely. You want a Team that knows and understands the local marketplace. We are familiar with the neighbourhoods, the school system and the public transit options. We can recommend a good family doctor and a great sushi restaurant, or point you to a great cycling path or a spacious park. We speak from experience.
