Homes Around Annapolis.
As a long time Realtor serving the Greater Annapolis MD area I want to personally welcome you to my website; Homes Around Annapolis. , I know and realize that you have a choice when it comes to who you work with when buying or selling a home and I appreciate you being here.
When shopping for an agent many buyers and sellers will check out someone who was referred to them via the Internet or will come to the Internet to search agents in the area(s) they are looking to buy or sell. Whatever brought you to my website I am grateful and appreciative and want to share some of the services you can expect when hiring me to do work for you.
Buying a Home- Did you know that it is just as important to have a written agreement with an agent when buying a home as it is when selling one? Here in Maryland it is called a Buyer Agency Agreement. Maryland Law states that at first initial face to face contact that “Agency” be explained to all Buyers. When we meet for the first time it will be done so to get to know each other and for me to share with you “How I work”, “What you can expect” and “information regarding Buyer Agency”. No signatures, no showing of homes just an hour or so to see if I am a good fit for you and you for me. You will leave with a Buyers Packet explaining agency in more detail along with a copy of a Buyers Agency Agreement along with information on me, maps of Anne Arundel County, A Buyers Service Guarantee, plus much more.
Why would I do it this way you may be thinking. Why can’t we just go and look at houses? Because I believe that you should be comfortable with who you are working with, on what they can offer you in the home buying process and be given the ability to make an informed decision based on your wants and needs when buying a home.
Selling a Home- Have you heard the term “Listing Agent”? I am sure you have and most agents with an inventory of homes to sell call themselves “listing Agents” M/M seller I would be happy to list your home for sale and then they proceed to tell you about what a great “listing agent” they are. That is not me. I do not list homes, I market homes, I know the market, I understand the market and I market homes as a ‘Marketing Professional”. I am a Realtor® who professionally markets your home to a successful sale.
As a home seller you have also been blessed with being the one who pays the real estate commission to both your agent and their Broker and to the Buyers Agent and their Broker. Knowing this I am always baffled when I hear the biggest complaint home sellers have is that their agent never communicates with them. That just blows my mind. As a Certified Seller Representation Specialist (SRS) I have taken the extra training to ensure that does not happen between my sellers and myself. It also allows me to help you avoid the fears of not selling fast enough (positioning), of not selling at all (home inspection or loan issues), of not selling for enough (staging).
It has been nice having you here and I hope you find Homes Around Annapolis a valuable resource for your real estate needs. Please bookmark and come back often. I am easily accessible by phone 410-260-2800 office; 410-440-7839 cell/text; martha@HomesAroundAnnapolis.com
