Why You Still Need a Real Estate Agent

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.

Back-to-School and Real Estate

It’s that time of year again.  Kids are heading back to school and fall is in the air!

How does that relate to real estate?  School districts can play a major role in choosing a home. Recent surveys show that school district boundaries play a major role in choosing a home in 60% of home buyers.

Many buyers are willing to make concessions on what kind of home they would like to buy if it is in the school district that they would like to see their children attend.  Many are willing to pay a little more and settle for less features that they are looking for to be in a better school system.

The best way buyers can find out about local school systems is to do a search of the areas they are interested in and also to find a local realtor who is knowledgeable about their area and the local school districts.  Check out features of the nearby school districts and their report cards.  Talking to other parents is also a great way to learn about a  quality school system for your children to attend.

Does this sound like a great career?  Now is a great time to get your real estate license and be a community expert for your clients.  Get started now and you can be a licensed agent by the holidays.  Visit to get started on your online course and live hours. Call 508-997-8844

Agent Rising Real Estate School held a two-day intensive Boot Camp on August 16th and 17th at the BOLD Welcome Center in Mattapoisett.   It was a great class with about 10 members.

Kate Lanagan MacGregor, co-owner of BOLD Real Estate led the class with some exciting guest speakers.

The day started with a scavenger hunt.  The class was broken up into different groups.  They were sent to different town halls in the area to obtain their scavenger hunt items.  This was a great way to show them the fieldwork that is required when you become a real estate agent.

Attorney Patricia McArdle, co-owner at BOLD Real Estate  was on hand to discuss the legal aspects of a real estate transaction,as well as Jasone Arone of Brick Road Mortgage Company to talk about the financial aspects.

This two-day class is a great way to jump start your real estate career.  You can get your live hours under your belt and finish online.  The class includes all the tools you will need to sit for and pass your real estate exam.

Fall Real Estate Market

We are almost ready to enter the second half of the year! How is the housing market looking and what do the experts have to say about the fall market?

This year so far has been an improvement for home buyers, especially millennials and first-time home buyers.  The rise in housing prices has started to slow and there has been a significant dip in mortgage rates.   The year will continue to be a seller’s market, but buyers may find there is less competition and frantic home searching, and more time to consider their options and take a little time when deciding to put an offer in on a home they love.

Millennials will still continue to be a majority of the buying population.  Inventory may rise slowly but not fast enough to satisfy all.

Experts predict that prices may still rise slowly but mortgage rates should stay low. Without the pressure of rising interest rates, buyers will face less competition and more time to carefully consider their options.

Of course, some areas will be more beneficial to buyers than others, but the frantic pace seems to be slowing down at the present moment.  Good news for every buyer, young or old.

Are you fascinated by the real estate industry? Now is a great time to start your real estate career.  The kids are heading back to school.  Now is the perfect opportunity to think about your career.  You can become a real estate agent by the holidays!  We have all the tools you need to sit for and pass the real estate exam.
