five starFor the second year in a row, The Dinsmore Team is thrilled to announce that Marie Dinsmore has been selected as a Five Star Real Estate Agent award winner.  The Five Star Professional program is now the largest and most widely published venue for real estate awards in North America and is carried out using market-specific research throughout the U.S. and Canada.  With a focus on identifying service professionals who provide quality assistance to their clients, Five Star’s main research objective is to create a list of real estate agents who demonstrate impeccable levels of integrity, professionalism, knowledge, and concern for their clients. In short, less than 7% of real estate agents in a given market are given this prestigious award.

To qualify, client satisfaction is measured on a yearly basis through recent homebuyer lists, consumer & home buyer evaluations, agent regulatory history, and license information.

Unlike other awards of this nature, real estate professionals do not pay a fee to be represented in the research, which makes us thrilled to know that what we do on a daily basis matters to our customers. Real estate truly is our passion, so we couldn’t be happier about this latest accolade.

Even With A Newly Built Home, You Still Need A Buyer’s Agent.

Close up of a welcome mat in front of an inviting house With the accessibility of today’s housing via the internet, many home shoppers may feel that they don’t need a buyer’s agent to help them find their dream property.   And for newly built homes, while you can do a lot of the legwork yourself, in the end you won’t be saving either money or time.

Plain and simple, even though the buyer’s agent works for you and not the seller, the seller is the one who will wind up paying for your agent upon closing.  Therefore, the first question you should be asking yourself is, “Why would I pass on a service that is in essence…FREE?”

In today’s market, most new homes are being built by national builders who employ salaried agents to sell their properties who don’t always have your best interest in their heart.  Generally, the first thing a seller’s agent will want to know about you is whether or not you have representation – if you don’t, the commission that they would normally have to split with your agent will go directly into their pocket.

With this, a selling agent is obviously interested in getting you to pay top-dollar for their property; however, a buyer’s agent will help counteract this by taking note of other similar sales in the area and making sure you aren’t paying too much.  In essence, your buyer’s agent is there to buffer you and negotiate on your behalf so that by the time you close, your house has not only been properly inspected, but has also been placed in perfect condition.

Similarly, when it comes to financing, a good agent will help you walk through the process of finding a solid mortgage company who can give you options which fit your lifestyle.  While the agent employed by the builder may also come ready with financing through a partnered company, it’s important to remember that they may not be looking to help you find the best solutions.

In short, when entering into a real estate transaction, it’s important to have someone in your corner who will make sure that you are taken care of throughout the entire process.   The Dinsmore Team can help you find the right mortgage lender, closing attorney and help you find your perfect home.
