Buying a home may seem intimidating or confusing, especially if it is your first time. At Tarvin Realtors, we pride ourselves in being helpful, kind, and caring real estate agents. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Ridgewood you should consider using Tarvin Realtors because our agents will be there at all times to answer any and all questions you may have. Since we want buying your home to be an easy and pleasant experience, we decided to answer commonly asked real estate questions by home buyers: 

  1. Renting vs. Buying? While renting is less expensive and requires less home maintenance, buying does have longterm benefits. If you are looking to experience Ridgewood but are not totally set on staying here for long, you may consider renting a home first to gain a better understanding of what Ridgewood is like. However, if Ridgewood is the place you would like to stay permanently then buying is definitely the road you should take. 

  2. What are Ridgewood’s local amenities?   A unique part about Tarvin Realtors is that our agents live in Ridgewood so they are able to provide you with first hand experiences and advice about Ridgewood. You may also consider visiting the Village of Ridgewood website to help you learn all about Ridgewood. Furthermore, Tarvin Realtors has posted many detailed blog posts about Ridgewood, including its history, restaurants, gyms, farmers markets, and more. 

  3. Do I need a real estate agent? Some home buyers are able to succeed in looking for a house alone, however using an agent has many advantages to it. Not only are Tarvin's agents there to answer your many questions, we want you to find your dream home. Tarvin Realtors works hard every day to provide the best real estate services to you. Having an agent will prove itself to be incredibly helpful in the long run as they are more than just a salesperson. An agent works on your behalf, therefore providing you with advice and guidance when buying a home. 

  4. What is a counter offer? A counter offer is an offer made by one party that makes changes to the original or latest offer of the other party. 

  5. What is an exclusive right to sell agency? This is a type of listing agreement most commonly used in which the seller cannot list the the property with another agent and must pay the agent’s commission. Essentially, you cannot sell your property with another agent once entered into this agreement and your agent will also be given a commission.
