WHY YOU NEED A REALTOR?
The biggest dilemma when selling/buying your home is whether to hire a professional real estate agent or not. With so many information and advices on the Internet, it is no wonder why so many people decide to do all the job on their own. But can we really be so sure in our knowledge and skills in successfully selling our home?
Although working solo can look faster and cheaper, the mistakes you could make may turn up to cost you more than the actual realtor’s commission.
Investing time in searching for the right realtor is crucial and it offers many advantages.
Firstly, real estate agents have all the experience and access to important and relevant information that you wouldn’t normally have. If you are looking to buy a home, a real estate agent will consider your criteria and could quickly track down homes that meet them, then use their contacts to get in touch with sellers’ agents and make appointments for you to view the homes. And vice versa, if you are ready to sell your home, the real estate agent could find the potential buyers and appropriately promote your home to the target market.
Another huge pro in hiring a realtor is their brilliant skill in providing the necessary information and guidance in the entire process. The realtors know all the steps and legal obligations that need to be done and that you may miss on your own.
And finally, you can be at peace with knowing that you have a smarter professional by your side that will always work in your best interest, regardless whether you seek a home or a buyer.
