On the fence about hiring a real estate agent? This is common, especially if you’ve gone through the home buying/selling process in the past. But there are many benefits to hiring a realtor that can ultimately save you money.
The market is constantly changing.
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that the housing and real estate market can pivot at any time. So if you are buying or selling a house, you want to work with an expert in the industry who can advise you correctly based on the current state of the market.
Hidden property listings.
Zillow is a great tool to help people understand what houses are worth and what is available in their desired area. Still, it doesn’t give you all the information you need. There are many hidden listings real estate agents have access to due to their exclusive resources. Without a realtor, you may miss out on the home of your dreams because you don’t know it’s available.
Advice during property viewings.
Whether you are a first-time home buyer or have been around the block, you may not be aware of red flags when viewing listings. A real estate agent can point out concerns and advise you on moving forward with the seller if you want to submit an offer. On the flip side, a real estate agent will also help you as the seller if your home needs improvements before listing.
When it’s time to buy a house, your real estate agent understands all the moving parts. Their experience and resources give them the knowledge to negotiate terms and prices when purchasing a home. They will be in your corner if negotiations or bidding wars occur. You need a person with the right expertise.
