    Ask your real estate agent for a referral to a great lender. Chance are, your agent will have a goodworking relationship with a mortgage broker or mortgage specialist and can get you start off rightaway.

    Step 3: Look at houses or condos

    After your pre-approval, the fun stuff starts. Go look at homes within your price range, and evendrop by Open Houses.

    Step 4: Make an offer

  • Buying a home may be the largest and most complex fi nancial

    transaction you ever undertake. If youre ready to buy a home,

    wouldnt you prefer to work with the most qualifi ed real estate

    professional you can fi nd?

    An Accredited Buyers Representative stands out in the crowd. If your REALTOR holds the ABR designation, you can trust that

    they have the extra edge when it comes to KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE.

    an Accredited Buyers Representative?

    Why Work with

    The ABR designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council (REBAC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS.

    To learn more about REBAC and access various homebuyer resources, please visit

    The ABR designation is only awarded to licensed real estate professionals who complete specialized training that gives them the edge in understanding a buyers perspective and protecting and promoting their buyer-clients interests. Before earning the ABR designation, buyers reps must also demonstrate proven experience in representing buyers. Further, they are committed to maintaining their professional edge by staying current on the latest issues and trends in buyer representation.

    When you work with an ABR, youll be served, not sold. Your interests become their interests. Theyll make your home buying experience go as smoothly and successfully as possible.

    You can expect your ABR to:

    Understand your specifi c needs and wants, and locate appropriate properties

    Assist you in determining how much you can afford (pre-qualify your mortgage)

    Preview and/or accompany you in viewing properties

    Advise you in formulating your offer

    Help you develop your negotiating strategy

    Provide a list of qualifi ed vendors (inspectors, attorneys, lenders, etc.) for other services you may need

    Keep track of every detail throughout the transactionto closing and beyond

    Not all buyers representatives are equal. Only a buyers rep who has earned the Accredited Buyers Representative designation has made the extra effort to raise the bar, with additional training and experience. If you work with an ABR, you can feel confi dent that youll receive the highest level of buyer-representation services.

    The ABR designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council (REBAC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR).
