Why Hire A Realtor?

Why should you hire a realtor? When thinking about selling or buying, leave it up to an expert! A realtor is someone who is experienced and educated in the fields of buying and selling properties. Here are a few great reasons that people don’t normally think of when trying to decide if they should use a realtor…


Tip #1: Education and Experience

You don’t have to know everything about buying or selling real estate, if you hire someone who already does. These people are experienced and educated in everything it takes to find the perfect property for you.

Tip #2: Agents are Buffers

Agents take the spam out of your property showings and visits.

Tips #3: Price Guidance

Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select the prices for sellers or buyers.

Tip #4: Neighborhood Knowledge

Agents either possess intimate knowledge or they know where to find it. They know what the next up coming are is, before anyone else does.

Tip #5: Professional Networking

Real Estate agents network with other professionals, many whom provide services you will need to buy or sell.

Tip #6: Market Conditions Information

Real estate agents can disclose market conditions, which will govern your selling or buying process. Many factors determine how you will proceed.

Tip #7: Negotiation Skills & Confidentiality

Top producing agents negotiate will because, unlike most buyers and sellers, they can remove themselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction, and because they are skilled. It is in the job description.

Tip #8: Handling Volumes of Paperwork

Face it, this is one of the worst parts, but with an agent, everything is taken care of. They organize and present you with all the papers you need. Today’s purchase agreements can be 10 pages or more!

Tip #9: Answer Questions After Closing

Many questions can pop up that were overlooked in the excitement of closing. Good agents stand by, ready to assist.
