Today, we'll talk about 5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Real Estate Agent

 

Clients occasionally question me, "Why should we employ a real estate agent?," given the wealth of information that is easily available online, they legitimately ponder whether they couldn't buy or sell a home by just using the Internet and bypassing the hiring of a real estate agent altogether. 

Here are five reasons why it is crucial to have a professional on your side when you are buying or selling a home. 

 

 

#1 Knowledge of the local area

Agents either have first-hand knowledge of your neighborhood or know where to look for it. In addition to identifying similar sales and providing you with this information, they can also lead you to further sources of information on demographics, crime, and schools. An agent's knowledge could be the reason that will keep you from buying the wrong house.

 

#2 Business Networking

Real estate agents collaborate with a variety of experts, many of whom offer the services you'll need to buy or sell a home. Due to potential legal repercussions, many agents will be reluctant to suggest one person or business over another, but they do know which vendors have a track record for effectiveness, competence, and affordable prices. The value of your agent's professional relationships could save you thousands of dollars during your transactions.

 

#3 Negotiations

Whether a client is a buyer or a seller, getting the best outcome for them is of the utmost importance to real estate brokers. For the purpose of negotiating rates and making the best choice, they gather all the data about the neighborhood market and present a compelling case to the other side. 

A good real estate agent working by your side, could be the difference to the final numbers. 

Your agents will always represent your best possible outcome... That's called fiduciary service, to which, they are obligated to give you based on their own license regulations from the state they represent.

 

#4 Contract Management Can Be Difficult

The offer to purchase contract is meant to safeguard you and make sure you can back out of the arrangement if certain requirements aren't met if you decide to buy or sell a home. For instance, if you want to purchase a home using a mortgage but neglect to include finance as a condition of the sale and aren't approved for the mortgage, you risk losing your down payment and potentially facing legal action from the seller for breach of contract. An experienced professional real estate agent knows the conditions should be used, when they may be safely removed, and how to utilize the contract to protect you.

Whether you're buying or selling your home, it pays to be represented by a professional real estate agent. 

 

#5 Risks of Legal Exposure

A property sale involves a lot of legal documentation, all of which needs to be performed appropriately by a professional. The seller's disclosures are among the most crucial components. All home sellers have a responsibility to disclose any circumstances that materially impacts the value or desirability of the property. If a seller fails to make the appropriate disclosures, they may be held accountable for fraud, carelessness, or breach of contract.

You need someone to advise you properly prior to facing a situation that exposes you financially. Knowledge is the best shield for legal exposure. 

 

It doesn't have to be difficult to find the right real estate agent for you. All you have to do is call me, and I'll take care of all the details. 

 

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed. 

 

To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!
