The best way to ensure you’ve got a great deal is to go with an expert! Below are the 10 key reasons why choosing a professional to assist you with the sale or purchase of your home is important.
#1 Education & Experience – You don’t need to know everything about buying and selling real estate if you hire a real estate professional who does.
#2 Agents are Buffers – Agents take the spam out of your property showings and visits.
#3 Neighborhood Knowledge – Agents either possess intimate knowledge or they know where to find the industry buzz about your neighborhood
#4 Price Guidance – Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select prices for sellers or buyers.
#5 Market Conditions Information – Real estate agents can disclose market conditions which will govern your selling or buying process
#6 Professional Networking – Real estate agents network with other professionals, many of whom provide services that you will need to buy or sell.
#7 Negotiation Skills & Confidentiality – Top producing agents negotiate well because unlike most buyers and sellers, they can remove themselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction and because they are skilled. It’s part of their job description.
#8 Handling Volumes of Paperwork -One-page deposit receipts were prevalent in the early 1970’s. Today’s purchase agreements run 10 pages or more, and disclosure seem to be neverending.
#9 Answer Question After Closing – Many questions can pop up that were overlooked in the excitement of closing. Good agents stand by ready to assist.
#10 Develop Relationships for Future Business – The basis for an agent’s success and continued career in real estate is referrals.
