Many people wonder whether they should hire a real estate professional to assist them in buying their dream home or if they should first try to do it on their own.
In today’s market: you need an experienced professional!
The field of real estate is filled with landmines; you need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist. Finding a home that is priced appropriately and is ready for you to move into can be tricky. An agent listens to your wants and needs, and can sift through the homes that do not fit within the parameters of your “dream home.”
Here are five reasons why you still need a Realtor:
They are well versed and experienced in the real estate market, home purchase process, and the best home sale methods.
Real estate is a heavily regulated profession, filled with many contracts, agreements, and duties. A missed deadline could potentially mean losing the home of your dreams. Don’t leave your future up to chance, choose a professional.
Negotiating a home purchase or sale can be a stressful and challenging process. Having someone on your side that not only understands the disclosures necessary but the best negotiation approaches can be priceless.
Understanding the current real estate market conditions could potentially guide you purchase in the best possible home for you or help you sell your home fast in a struggling market.
Setting a competitive price for your home starts with knowing what comparable homes are selling for. Pricing a home too low or too high could essentially hurt your home sale timeline and profits. The same can be said about bidding price for a home, don’t lose what could’ve been the home of your dreams because of your lack of market knowledge.
Famous sayings become famous because they are true. You get what you pay for. Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money…not cost you money.
