Utah County First Time Home Buyers Want Someone on Their Side

Satisfied Utah County Home Buyers in front of their new homeWe recently purchased our first home in Utah County with the assistance of Benjamin Clark.  We had been researching homes and the home-buying process for about a year before we decided the time was right.  After reading a lot about the process, it became clear to us that we wanted someone representing our interests exclusively.  Retaining an exclusive buyer’s agent was the only way to do that.

We discovered that Benjamin Clark was the only exclusive buyer’s agent in the area.  Initially, we had a few concerns.  We were a little concerned that we only had one choice and that Benjamin was based out of Salt Lake County, not Utah County.  As we began to work with Benjamin, however, those concerns quickly dissipated.  It became exceedingly clear that he knew what he was doing and was willing to work as hard as needed to meet our needs, despite the long drive.  We also had some concerns about the seeming conflict in interest with all agents:  the agent gets paid more as the purchase price increases.  Benjamin made it clear with both his words and his actions that making the experience as satisfying as possible for us, the buyers, was way more important and valuable to him than the extra couple hundred dollars in commission that might come from a higher purchase price.  At the beginning of the process, we gave him a range in prices that we were comfortable with.  We never felt any direct or indirect pressure to go with the more expensive homes in our price range.  On the contrary, Benjamin seemed very interested in seeing if we could find a home near the bottom of our price range.  In the end, we found a home initially listed at the middle of our price range and ended up buying it for a price close to the bottom of our range ($15,000 less than the initial listing price).

As a first time home buyer, Benjamin was very helpful at every step of the process.  If we ever had a question or a concern about anything, he was very quick to return our phone calls.  Furthermore, he was very easy to get along with and made the process comfortable and enjoyable.

The most important fact is that we have now been in our home for about a month and a half and still love it.  We would recommend Benjamin Clark to anyone that asks.
