Why you need an agent

home sweet home
In today’s housing market many people tend to undervalue the important role real estate agents play in the buying and selling of homes, often viewing real estate agents merely as the middleman. However, real estate agents play an active and important role in house transactions and can help make buying or selling your home easy, stress-free and financially beneficial to all parties involved. Here are just a few reasons why buyers and sellers should use a real estate professional:

1. Negotiating Skills

Negotiating a closing price can be tricky business, especially if you find yourself in a bidding war. Real estate agents engage in negotiations every day, and it is their job to help you get the price you want. Whether a real estate agent needs to soften your negotiations or help you stand firm on your price, they will protect you and your interests while being objective and realistic.

2. Marketing Power

Many real estate agents will put together an entire marketing strategy to sell your home, including an MLS listing, social media campaign, open houses and print advertisement. It is their goal to sell your home as fast as possible, and to do this they rely on marketing, advertising and media coverage. A good real estate agent will utilize many marketing avenues to get your house out on the market and sold in record time.

3. Expertise

Real estate agents are the experts in the housing industry, with extensive knowledge of the local market, market trends and sales data. Therefore they will be able to recommend realistic prices for buyers and sellers that are reflective of the current market value. A real estate agent can also give you valuable information on different neighborhoods and up-and-coming communities, and whether or not it’s the right time to buy or sell.

4. Protection

Licensed real estate agents are bound by law to act in their client’s best interest, so you can be sure that they will go out of their way to protect you and your home through the entire process. A real estate agent can ensure that you are getting the best value for the right price, while protecting you both legally and financially. Real estate agents deal with purchase contracts and legalities on a daily basis, therefore they know exactly what clauses and conditions will protect you throughout the whole transaction, particularly if you need to back out at the last minute. Whether you are looking to purchase your dream home or want to sell your existing abode, a real estate agent can help make the process as easy and efficient as possible. Buying or selling a home is one of the largest financial transactions you’ll make in your lifetime, therefore it makes sense to have a qualified professional by your side through the entire process. If you are interested in buying or selling your home feel free to contact me today. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and guide you through the entire process.
