Buying a home is one of the biggest and most important financial decisions you make. Therefore, it must be complicated, right?

There are many steps to buying a home in North Carolina. And even experienced home buyers are bound to have questions along the way. So, how can you be confident that you’re making the right decision? Here’s how to conquer the “Big Three” home buyer concerns before you make an offer.


What are the “Big Three” Concerns Every Home Buyer Has?

At EXP, we’ve worked with thousands of buyers since our company was founded in 2002. And our goal is to make sure that you are able to make confident decisions.

Based on our years of experience, we’ve learned that there are three concerns that all home buyers have in common. We call them the “Big Three:”

  1. How will I know that I’ve seen all the properties matching my criteria?

  2. What can I do to be sure I don’t overpay?

  3. How can I ensure that I don’t buy a property in poor condition?

Our professional real estate agents are among the best trained and most experienced in the industry. EXP agents are uniquely equipped with evaluation techniques and market analysis tools to help you answer these questions and feel confident about your home purchase.

Let’s look at each question in more detail:


How will I know that I’ve seen all the properties matching my criteria?

According to the latest research from the National Association of Realtors®, 41% of buyers begin their home search online. And a full 95% use online search tools at some point in their home search journey. That’s why we make “easy” the name of the online search game. Our website shows you the most comprehensive selection of MLS listings in the area. With this information available, you can confidently customize your home search from the start.

What can I do to be sure I don’t overpay?

One of the most important services your real estate agent can provide is an analysis of neighborhood trends to establish reasonable market value. By its very nature, all real estate is local, but national and regional trends also impact value. Agents who understand this can offer invaluable insight into how closely a home’s asking price matches its current value.

At EXP Realty, our process begins broadly and narrows its focus until it is specific to you. We'll perform a comparative market analysis for your neighborhood, in which we evaluate similar, recently sold homes near the home you want to buy. Preparing a CMA for your chosen property before submitting your offer is one of the most valuable services your agent will offer you.


How can I ensure that I don’t buy a property in poor condition?

When you are prepared for the home inspection, there will be a lot less stress should one or more issues crop up. This is why a professional real estate agent can prove so valuable. After viewing hundreds of homes, EXP REALTORS® are trained to be on the lookout for common issues discovered by qualified home inspectors. They can then help you decide which should be addressed during your due diligence period or which are deal breakers.

Real estate agents also work tirelessly to grow their vendor networks and build relationships with reputable professionals who know how to conduct business correctly and efficiently. Their connections can help you find professional service people to help you address any issues at hand, whether before or after closing day.
