With all the access to online services for buying or selling a home, many buyers and sellers may feel they don’t need a real estate agent. This can be a bad idea.
Real estate agents know the market and the area. They can help you find the perfect home that meets your criteria without a long search. They can help narrow down your search and have access to other agents to help get you in to see your potential home quicker without you having to play phone tag with the agent.
If you are selling your home, you will have to field calls yourself and make appointments. Buyers may feel intimidated to view the home with the sellers present.
Real estate agents are your community experts. They can help with information on the neighborhood and the school systems you may be moving into.
Real estate agents are skilled negotiators. They are the go-between for the buyers and sellers and can help smooth ruffled feathers. They can help you buy or sell a home at the right price without bad feelings between the buyers and sellers that can squash a deal.
Buying or selling a home involves contracts and legal jargon. Real estate agents can help you navigate this journey and connect you with the proper attorney to advise you on all the legal aspects of the transaction.
While there are costs involved in using a real estate agent, the peace of mind and expertise you can expect from your agent is well worth the money.
