Are you looking to purchase a home? Buying a home is the biggest investment most people make. As a prospective homebuyer, you need to make sure the professionals working for you have no one else’s interests in mind but yours. You also want to make sure you are getting the most professional services for your money. Attorney Ghioldi is a licensed real estate broker who works with her clients as a buyer’s broker, providing legal representation throughout the entire home purchase process at no additional cost. She also has a network of other qualified real estate professionals in the areas of listing properties for sale, appraisals, title searches, mortgage lending and insurance that she can refer her clients to.
As a prospective buyer, you may not know that listing agents do not represent you. They represent the seller. At an open house, you may encounter the listing agent who wants to act as your agent if you make an offer. If he or she lists the house for sale and represents the seller, there is a significant potential for a conflict of interest. As a prospective homebuyer, you do not want to work with a real estate agent who acts as your agent and acts as the agent for the person whose house you are trying to buy. Also, traditional real estate firms do not provide legal representation. Remember, there are many legal contracts involved in buying a home. The Offer you sign sets precedence for the Purchase and Sale Agreement, which sets forth all the terms of your purchase, including a buyer’s right to inspections, mortgage contingencies and good title to the property.
As a homebuyer, you want to know you are legally protected in the buying process while working with a buyer broker you can trust. Attorney Ghioldi not only has the legal expertise to advise you during the home buying process, she also has full access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), the most important database of information in the residential real estate market. She accesses the most current, complete and accurate information on properties actively for sale as well as those properties that are currently under agreement, have been sold, withdrawn or expired from the market. Knowing what similar properties have sold for, what competitive properties are listed for and why comparable properties didn’t sell is vital information in order for you to make informed decisions. Attorney Ghioldi will help you analyze the pertinent data and develop a strategic plan to help you get the house you want, where you want it, and for the right price (and you won’t pay fees for the legal work associated with your purchase).
