In this week’s video we discuss the benefits of hiring a real estate agent for your next real estate transaction. What will you get out of the experience, and how will it benefit you?
Watch the video, where we break down the pros of hiring an expert for this important process.
Your home–whether it’s new or old, is near and dear to your heart. This makes it almost impossible to keep emotions out of the process of selling or buying your home. How so?
- Sellers can be unreasonable and argumentative
- A home inspection may reveal defects
- Lenders may reject your loan
- You could receive a low appraisal
- Your agent may not communicate well with you or meet your expectations
…And the list goes on. The first thing you can do to prepare for the unexpected is shop around for a real estate agent whom you connect with and feel you can trust. The best perk of hiring a real estate agent? You don’t need to know anything about real estate yourself.
Here are a few advantages of hiring a real estate expert:
1. If You’re Buying a House, Hiring a Real Estate Agent is Absolutely Free
Real Estate agents have extensive experience selling homes. As a result, they will know more than you about the neighborhoods, schools, contracts, etc. related to your new home. So, why not take advantage of the free opportunity to have an expert help you with your search for a new home?
2. Real Estate Agents Wear A Lot of Different Hats
As well as helping you with the real estate process, your real estate agent also takes on the role of your parent, data analyst, and therapist—all rolled into one.
3. Real Estate Agents Help With Property Searches
Agents can help you weed out unwanted properties by gathering details about what you’re
looking for in a home. They can email you a list of properties based on your specifications, saving you time and money.
4. Price Guidance
Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select prices for sellers or buyers. An agent will actually guide their clients towards making the best decision for themselves.
5. Negotiation Skills
Often the most emotional part in real estate, negotiating is a part of the home selling/buying process and good real estate agents are great at it.
Real estate agents are able to ensure confidentiality, protecting your information. Your identity, income, and finances, are never shared with sellers or sellers’ real estate agents.
7. Handling Loads of Paperwork
Purchase agreement can be 14 pages long–or more. Real estate agents handle these contracts on a daily basis, so they can walk you through the contract with ease, helping you avoid any costly mistakes.
8. Viewing Properties
How will you get into properties to see them without a real estate agent? Agents
hold special keys that enable them to access houses on the market you wouldn’t otherwise be able to view.
So, now that you’ve learnt the reasons to hire a realtor for your next real estate transaction, what is there to lose?
