Our Philosophy: "If we can't talk you out of buying the house, then it's probably the right house! What does this have to do with evaluating property? When you are preparing to make an offer on a home you want to know the negatives as well as the positives. Our clients usually recognize the positive characteristics of a target property and it's our job to make sure they know the negatives. Negatives like overpricing, functional obsolescence and evidence of hidden defects. Buying the right home, at the right price, on the right terms is always our objective.
Right Price Analysis: The industry prepares a Comparative Market Analysis; The Buyer's Broker of Greenville prepares a Right Price Analysis independent of the seller and their agent. We value property based on the predominate value in the neighborhood, not just one over priced listing that was used to price the target property. We measure the heated square footage of the target property, analyze the recent comparable sales data, and develop a reliable opinion of value that is the foundation of developing a savvy negotiating strategy.
Quality of Construction: There are many types and quality of construction in every real estate market. Your agent should be able to recognize the difference in a stick built home and a production built home, in a thirty year shingle and a twenty year shingle, in a contractor grade HVAC and a high quality HVAC, in synthetic stucco and Portland cement stucco. Knowing the types and quality of construction for the local market can make the difference in thousands of dollars in future maintenance costs.
Sellers Disclosure: South Carolina mandates that every seller provide a Sellers Disclosure Statement to the home buyer before signing a contract. This information can be critical in writing an offer that protects your best interest. The Buyer's Broker of Greenville analyzes this information before an offer is written so we can make sure our client is protected.
Seller Motivation: Knowing the Sellers motivation can provide you with critical information when you begin developing a negotiating strategy. The real estate industry has long been perceived by the public as focusing on closing a sale rather than representing their client. The Buyer's Broker is passionate about advocacy and it's one of the reasons that were different than a traditional agent.
