We are often asked if it makes sense to hire a real estate professional when buying or selling a home. We always emphatically answer - YES!
Here are five reasons why:
An agent will help with all disclosures and paperwork necessary in todayâ€™s heavily regulated environment. This helps remove much of the liability a buyer or seller could face.
Navigating todayâ€™s real estate and mortgage processes can be like walking through a minefield of challenges. Real estate professionals are well educated in and experienced with the entire sales process.
Negotiating such a large financial transaction can get tricky. Agents act as a â€˜bufferâ€™ in negotiations with all parties throughout the entire transaction.
Real estate professionals help buyers and sellers understand the true real estate value of a property in todayâ€™s market. This is crucial when setting the price on a listing or on an offer to purchase.
UNDERSTANDING OF CURRENT MARKET CONDITIONS
There is a plethora of housing information available today. The challenge is that some information appears to be in direct conflict with other pieces of information. A true real estate professional can simply and effectively explain todayâ€™s real estate headlines and decipher what they mean to you.
