When you decide to buy a house, it's more than just a place to live; it becomes your home. It's also one of the biggest financial decision you may make in your life. So, it's important to have a professional working on your behalf, making sure that your interests are protected.
Although a home purchase is often guided by emotion, this is a business transaction. A professional Realtor® is trained to handle the business side of your transaction. At RE/MAX Alliance, our agents strive to provide you with valuable knowledge about the home buying process, navigating you every step of the way.
Remember, when you work with a buyer's agent, they work FOR you, but you don't pay them. You need a buyer's agent, and since it doesn't cost you anything for their representation, it's a win-win! Typically speaking, all commissions are paid by the seller, although all terms are negotiable. Most homes on the market are represented through a seller's agent, so it's important for you, as a buyer, to be equally represented by a buyer's agent.
So what is all involved in the home buying process, you might be wondering? Well, simply put, a lot. Check out this handy flowchart that will give you a high level overall impression of everything that could be involved in your home buying process.
