WHEN I SERVE AS YOUR
REPRESENTATIVE, MY COMPREHENSIVE BUYER SERVICES ARE
GEARED TO HELP YOU MAKE THE BEST BUYING DECISION THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS:
ARRANGE SHOWING APPOINTMENTS: Arrange showing appointments
for properties you like and are qualified to buy.
Prior to showing it's often useful for you, the buyer, to
drive by properties to see if you really want to see the
inside, because MLS photos may not give sufficient
information that a pre-showing drive-by could better reveal.
OFFERING PRICE: Provide you
with recent sales and listing information so you, the buyer,
can determine your offering price. This
is called a Buyers Comparative Market Analysis or "CMA".
Note: In a rapidly changing market or when housing inventory
is limited and buyer demand is high, prior closed sales
information may be less reliable.
PURCHASE OFFER AND
NEGOTIATIONS: Write the Purchase Offer and
represent you in contract negotiations that realistically take
into account current market demand, available supply of
and any special circumstances such as a multiple
purchase offer situation. Because I'm not an attorney, I'm not
qualified to provide any type of legal advice, including but
not limited to, interpreting legally binding contract
provisions. Questions and concerns of a legal nature
should be obtained from consulting with a qualified
INTERESTS - FIDUCIARY DUTY: Represent you, the Buyer, during the contract
The California Civil Jury Instructions provides this
explanation of what "Fiduciary Duty" means: A fiduciary duty imposes on
a real estate agent/real estate broker, a duty to act with the utmost good
faith in the best interests of his/her/its client. In other
words, a real estate client is owed a duty of good faith, loyalty, honesty,
reasonable care and fair dealing.
CONTRACTS AND DISCLOSURES REQUIRED BY
LAW: Real estate contracts, including but not limited
to, Buyer Inspection Advisory's, legally mandated seller
disclosures, home inspection reports, environmental reports,
preliminary title reports, building permits, permits and
permit history disclosure reports, County Assessor's
Reports, zoning regulations, geo-technical inspections and
reports, and various other reports and documents, can be
extremely complex, and may be fraught with land-mines that
could result in major problems if a dispute arises. I
will provide the necessary contract and transaction
disclosure documents as required by local, state, and
federal regulations. Please take the time to read all
documents very carefully before signing any documents.
You, as the buyer, have an affirmative duty to exercise
reasonable care to protect yourself, including discovery of
the legal, practical and technical implications of disclosed
facts, and the investigation and verification of information
and facts that you know or are within your diligent
attention and observation.
Because I'm not an attorney, I'm not qualified to provide
any type of legal advice, including but not limited to,
interpreting legally binding contract provisions.
Questions and concerns of a legal nature should be obtained
from consulting with a qualified attorney.
TAKING POSSESSION OF YOUR NEW HOME:
Coordinate your taking possession of
your new home, including arranging transferring keys, security
codes, garage door openers, and other similar items to you,
the new owner, after the transfer of title is completed.

Federal and state fair
housing laws were put into effect to create an even playing field for
homebuyers in all areas of a real estate transaction. These laws
prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability,
familial status, and national origin. The Civil Rights Act of 1866
prohibits all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property.
The Fair Housing Act of 1968 makes fair housing a national policy. It
prohibits discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or
making housing otherwise unavailable because of race, color, religion,
sex, disability, familial status or national origin. Title III of the
Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons
with disabilities in commercial facilities and places of public
accommodation. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act makes it unlawful to
discriminate against anyone on a credit application due to race, color,
religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age or because all or
part of an applicant's income comes from any public assistance program.
The home seller, the home seeker, and the real estate professional all
have rights and responsibilities under the law. Under the law, a home
seller or landlord cannot establish discriminatory terms or conditions
in the purchase or rental; deny that housing is available or advertise
that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color,
religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin. Agents
in a real estate transaction may not discriminate on the basis of race,
color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin.
They also may not follow such instructions from a home seller or
landlord. Discrimination complaints about housing may be filed with the
nearest office of the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
or by calling HUD's toll-free numbers, 1-800-669-9777 (voice) or TTY
