Most homebuyers will purchase their home through the use of a real estate agent. Here are just a few reasons you should too.
REALTORS® listen to your requests, preferences and expectations when looking for your dream home. They have resources available to them to find your perfect home. A large share of real estate sales come as a result of the realtor’s contacts through previous clients, referrals and home databases not available to the general public.
REALTORS® are well educated and experienced with the entire buying and selling process. Experienced real estate agents will have up to date information on what is happening in the marketplace including financial terms and trends in the market.
Real estate agents do hundreds of home transactions in their career, so they have a lot of experience helping with disclosures and necessary paperwork in today’s heavily regulated home buying process. They will make sure all the paperwork and contracts are in order so there is a smooth transaction.
A REALTOR® is very knowledgeable about what is happening in the home market locally and nationally. They help you understand today’s home values when settling on a price of a listing or an offer to purchase.
REALTORS® act as a “buffer” in negotiations with all parties throughout the entire process. They protect you and your best interests in the process.
