What is the Difference between a Lender and Real Estate Agent? | Oahu, Hawaii


Are you wondering what the difference is between
a Lender and Real Estate Agent? Hi, I am Fawn Bertram with Homes by Fawn and
Hawaii Life. The role of a Mortgage Lender is to lend money
for buying property. A Lender can be a Bank, Credit Union, Mortgage
Broker, Private Individual, etc. Think of a Lender like the Money People, the
Chi-Ching. Lenders are the one’s who CAN pre-approve
you for a loan. For example, if you have questions like, how
much will my monthly mortgage payments be? What are the interest rates? What type of loans do I qualify for? What am I pre-approved for? These are the types of questions you ask a
Lender. Remember, financial questions equal Lender. A Real Estate agent or Agent is a licensed
professional who represents the Buyer or Seller in a real estate transaction. Think of an agent as your trusted adviser
who will be guiding you through the process of Buying or Selling a home. As a Buyers Agent, I’ll get you set up on
a property search that will show you active homes on the the market in real time that
will match your search criteria. Then the fun part happens, we will go house
hunting to find your dream home! I will setup showing appointments, write offers,
counter-offers, inspections, write up amendments, negotiate the best deal for you and so much
more. Now, Agents who work for Sellers are known
as Listing agents or Sellers agents. As a sellers agent, I advise clients on pricing
their home for sale by providing comps in the neighborhood and market conditions. I’ll also provide tips and tricks on fixing
or making improvements on their home so it will sell for top dollar. As a Digital Marketing Specialist, I will
market the home on the MLS which syndicates to many websites but I will go one step further. I will market your home on different social
media platforms that will target buyers who are actively looking for a home and then re-target
them based on engagement. They will see your home everywhere and this
will be advertised to the masses. Remember, Real Estate Agents are the go-betweens
for the principal parties and they spearhead the deal through closing. Lenders are the money people. It’s essential you have the right realtor
working for you. If you’re looking for different type of realtor,
who is using digital marketing correctly, please call or text me. Fawn Bertram with Homes by Fawn and Hawaii
