Your Austin, Texas ABR, CRS Buyer Agent Specialist
The Home Buying Process With Tom Thornton, Broker Associate, ABR, CRS, GRI, EcoBroker:
Austin's real estate market has not only survived the recession - it is postively thriving compared to the rest of the country! It's an exciting and rewarding situation, with interesting old homes in good condition, new luxury developments, new construction and historic condos downtown, and well-planned family residences with lasting financial and utilitarian appeal.
Searching for a home
Despite (and perhaps because of) the great selections in homes in this area, buyers are having a difficult time zeroing in on the home or property that is uniquely appropriate for their needs.
The Home Buying Process
As you begin to think about buying a home, you're probably acutely aware that this is likely to be your greatest investment ever (short of children or a good marriage), and you might be wondering if there's anything you really need to know as you go into this process. This is where your real estate professionals come in. With the help of a trained agent, you can come out on top of a closing that might otherwise have pushed your retirement ahead a decade! This happens all the time to buyers, who are left reflecting on the relatively small commission that would have brought a Realtor into the bargain to help them.
