We go through a lot of effort & expense to train our agents because we know that investing in them is not only beneficial to you in finding your new home, but also in getting the best value in all aspects of the home-buying process, from sales price to lenders and insurance.

To many, this would seem to be one of the primary jobs your real estate agent would be good at. Unfortunately, many agents know little more than how to fill in the blanks. We teach our agents how to properly write an offer to purchase to maximize lender attributes and acceptable uses to minimize out of pocket expenses. We also train our agents in the use of contingencies to safeguard deposits through inspections.
While it may be hard to come to realistic negotiations with unrealistic sellers, most offers to purchase are in a negotiable range. Fortunately, there are many additional fields in a purchase offer, most of which mean hidden expenses. We train our agents on the effective use of strategy in line items to minimize buyer's out of pocket by utilizing lender policies in seller negotiated line item expenses.
Technology is the forefront of our industry and we are leading the way in technological tools for our agents. Not only does our technology assist our agents in faster follow-up with clients, the training in these systems shows our buyer's agents how to effectively do research on properties and properly value a property for offers. This means faster follow-up and better value!
Mississippi is one of the few states that do not require a buyer representation agreement. Because of this, most agents do not use them and some brokers will not allow them. We believe that buyers should have proper representation in a real estate transaction and having an agreement that shows exactly what your agent is doing for you is the best place to start.
Gone are the days that you leave a voicemail for your agent and do not receive a call back until they get in from showing properties, eat dinner, play with the kids, and walk the dog. Our agents are highly trained in the effective use of technology to be not only efficient, but exceptional in their follow-up.
One of the biggest downfalls to most busy agents comes in their time management skills. We have actually developed a system and train our agents on it, to help them be consistently more effective than other agents by managing their time more wisely so your closing doesn't get delayed.
Did you know that your buyer's rep agreement can include looking at FSBO (For Sale by Owner) properties? Most FSBO sellers do so because they either owe too much to be able to afford to pay a sales commission, have problems with the home that they do not wish to disclose or they actually have enough knowledge to do so - all of which a potential buyer should be wary of. If there is nothing you love currently listed, your buyer's agent can assist with FSBO homes and make sure you don't get taken advantage of.
A listing agent's job is to sell a home at the highest possible price, in the shortest amount of time, and on the best terms. They are bound by a fiduciary responsibility to their seller to achieve these goals. This is why it is so important when working with a NextHome E-Realty agent, that you never directly contact another agent or seller about a home. Some people feel like they are helping by saving their agent time, but it is our job as your agent to do these things, to help you find properties, and to get information you need to make an informed decision, without you contacting a seller or listing agent directly. Doing so almost always has negative ramifications when it comes down to negotiating the deal. If you have already talked to a listing agent and innocently said something like "I love the house, I will get my agent to write up the offer", that agent is going to relay that information and could use it to increase your offer, weakening your position.
When you are physically unable to view a property and the photos from the listing agent just are not enough, we have the ability to have better photos, video walk-through, or even 3D video renderings to help you make a sound decision without ever stepping inside the home. Because of the cost of this service, some restrictions and/or additional fees may be incurred, but in many cases can be applied as a discount at closing.
We have forged a relationship with CyberTycoons, the leading name in online marketing and web services. Through this partnership, our agents get the best training in technological advancements and use of that technology to assist in response rate as well as utilization of technology platforms to better service our clients. This means faster response to your questions, better security for your sensitive information, and an overall better experience with your agent and the home-buying process.
Real estate agents and real estate companies are unique. Each possesses different skill sets, educational backgrounds, experience levels, marketing and advertising resources, and service commitments. Here is a guide to important considerations when selecting your agent. We will address all of these items regarding our team, but you should also consider asking these questions of any agent being interviewed in the process.
