New Blog Series from National Buyers Agents Association Provides Free Real Estate Guidance

EVERGREEN, Colo. -- The National Buyers Agents Association just completed a blog series that educates potential home buyers about buying or selling real estate in the next three months. Special consideration is given to how to handle the escalating prices of homes.

December is an excellent month for buying in colder states because sellers are typically more willing to negotiate on price. On the other hand, inventory is typically lower. In January, inventory increases and continues to do so throughout the spring. However, the series encourages every home buyer and seller to only buy or sell when it is the right time for them.

The series of informative articles may be found here: https://buyeragentsearch.com/blog/

The association recommends that all potential buyers get a free consultation with two to three buyer's agents who specialize in the buyer's area of interest. Most buyer's agents will work within an hour's drive of their home or main office.

There are over 1.4 million licensed real estate agents in the US. The association only admits into membership those who have at least 3 years of experience, and who have excellent track records, ratings and reviews. Members are accountable both to the buyer and to the association, and they agree to provide fiduciary agency services. These agents are honest about the current seller's market in their area, and provide free consultations.

The blog series includes up-to-date insights from the weekly Consumers Real Estate radio program that airs between 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. on KHOW630.

Kathleen Chiras, the association's manager, is a regular guest on this show. She says, "This blog resource is useful for all homebuyers who are struggling to find the most efficient way to navigate the current strong seller's market. A list of qualified buyers agents for a specific city or town may be found at the association's website, buyeragentsearch.com."

The association recently had a request from a Los Angeles buyer who is interested in moving to the paradise-like climate of Los Altos, Calif., south of San Francisco. He is willing to pay $1-2 million dollars for 1-2 acres of vacant land where he can have a garden and build a home. However, the exclusive buyer's agent in that area, Barbara Delantoni, honestly responded, "I don't have high hopes for 1-2 acres in this area for that price". The association checked out her assertation and shockingly, found it to be true. Sometimes association staff or their member agents must give potential buyers a bit of enlightenment about the low inventory and high prices in many areas of the U.S.

Some people need to sell in order to buy, but do not wish to sell until they know they can buy. The blog outlines effective ways of interviewing both buyer agents and seller agents to coordinate this sort of transaction.

Allen Weidman, a prospective buyer for a home purchase Beaufort North Carolina recently chose one of the 3 agents provided to him by the association. His written feedback to the association was: "Jim is professional, knowledgeable and experienced. We could not have done this from +350 miles away without him."

The series gives quality information on how to select an agent. A 10-point question and answer sheet is provided. The most important attribute of a buyer's agent is his or her negotiation skills, and the most important attribute of a seller's agent is his or her marketing skills. Real estate agent members have at least 3 to 5 years of experience. Members are typically broker/owners or agents under the supervision of a highly experienced manager. Some are buyer or seller specialists within an experienced team.

Articles in the blog encourage real estate consumers to evaluate the agent's designations, education, experience, and skills. Many of the association members are accredited or exclusive buyer's agents. The association has a membership of approximately 1400 top agents. These agents are located in all 50 states. Many are interviewed on the association's YouTube channel.

Colorado Buyers Association Publishes an Essential Guide for Home Buyers

EVERGREEN, Colo. -- The Colorado Exclusive Buyer Agent Association (CEBAA) just released a free guide in collaboration with the national association that includes five essential homebuying checklists for buyers and sellers who intend to purchase property in the United States. The guide will be discussed by CEBAA's association manager, Katheen Chiras, at a guest appearance on the Consumers Real Estate radio program this Saturday November 6, 2021. The show airs between 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. on KHOW630.

The guide includes the following checklists that help home buyers assess: 1) reasons for buying a home 2) support networks 3) advantages of different types of property 4) homebuyer needs verses wants and 5) agent representation.

The guide may be found at: https://buyeragentsearch.com/buyers-agents-home-buying-checklists/.

Interested parties may visit https://homebuyerscolorado.org/find-buyers-agent to see the many resources offered to buyers hoping to purchase in Colorado.

The guide is a handy resource for first-time homebuyers, who are struggling to find the most efficient way to navigate the current strong seller's market in Colorado and elsewhere. According to the weekly radio show, home prices have remained steady over the past few weeks, after many months of escalating prices. The median price of a single-family home in Denver is over $600,000 and the median price in Colorado Springs at typically about $100,000 to $150,000 less The number of houses that buyers and their agents are putting under contract was consistent from the first of August to the end of July.

Some people need to sell in order to buy, so the guide also includes effective ways of interviewing both buyer agents and seller agents. CEBAA has an inquiry form which allows potential home buyers to have immediate access to a list of qualified exclusive and accredited buyer agents. The markets analyzed include Colorado Springs and Denver.

The guide makes it apparent that one of the most important attributes of a buyer's agent is negotiation skills, and for seller's agents the main attribute is marketing skills. It is recommended that a real estate agent have at least 3 to 5 years of experience to be qualified. Additionally, both buyers and sellers also may wish to assess the agent's designations, education, experience, and skills.

The guide also highlights the best timeline to buy or sell real estate. Statistically, May and June are the times that most homes are getting under contract. However, December is an excellent month for buying because in Colorado sellers are typically more willing to negotiate on price in this cold winter month. On the other hand, the guide also points out the fact that every home buyer and seller should only buy and sell when it is the right time for them.

The website posts the experience of a recent home buyer who used a CEBAA agent: "He took the extra time, the extra work, to help us find the 100% perfect house. We have a better house with a better neighborhood and better schools."

The Colorado association has agent members who do not list property, called exclusive buyer agents. The association also has affiliated fiduciary agents who are vetted and reviewed by the association.

There are also many home buying or selling tips found on its website, and as well as linked access to the National Buyers Agent Association website located at https://BuyerAgentSearch.com/.
