Why is a Buyer's Agent Important?

A real estate transaction is a complex process involving stacks of paperwork and a number of outside service providers and contractors.

 

As an experienced buyer's agent, I can guide you through the process, answering your questions and serving as your advocate. I will help you find the property that fits your needs, submit offers and counteroffers, suggest a handful of good property inspectors and other professionals, and provide all sorts of relevant advice.

 

With Aaron Jones, you'll have someone on your side, looking out for your interests every step of the way.

  

What are the costs involved in hiring Aaron Jones to help find your property?


As a buyer, you don’t pay for my services directly. Instead, the agents receive an agreed-upon portion of the listing agent's sales commission (usually about half), which is paid by the seller.

 

If you're thinking this structure works against you by giving a buyer's agent an incentive to let you pay more than you need to, consider this:

 

The increase in a buyer's agent commission on, say, a $5,000 to $10,000 jump in price would be only $125 to $250. I am engaged in the business full time and simply am not going to risk my reputation. Your satisfaction – which can generate referrals to your friends and family – is the lifeblood of my career.



TIP:

When seeking out a buyer’s agent, look for factors such as productivity, education and experience.  Look for an agent who understands your lifestyle. Make sure the agent knows the neighborhoods you're interested in, and can answer questions you'll have about the location.

Okoboji Boat Works

Okoboji Boat Works in West Lake Okoboji

Okoboji Boat Works is home to "The Fish Shack" and "The Inconvenience Store". Formerly a marina of thriving boat sales since 1890, OBW now offers up many different rentals, a 24 hour gas dock, excursion boats, and more. I remember the days as a child of fishing for crappie and blue gill here and along the docks of Smith's Bay. Though the scenery has changed, the outstanding fishing has not.

The Family Diner

The Family Diner in Spirit Lake

The Family Diner is Spirit Lake, IA is a local favorite! They offer up a large portion for small money, but whether you come early or late you may be in for a wait. With homemade bread and the largest sausage patty you have seen, The Family Diner is consistently delicious. They are open only for breakfast and lunch and closed two days a week. In my former career at Stylecraft, the family diner was definately a favorite when our friends would visit from North Carolina. They were always inpressed with the bread and rolls and corn beef hash.
