Why hire a real estate agent if you can buy and sell a house on your own? But then again, why stress yourself out?
Home buyers should relish the prospect of closing the deal on the home of their dreams instead of worrying about the myriad details that come with the transaction. On the other hand, home sellers need an objective party to guide them through the emotional process of saying goodbye to a home they’ve lived in for years.
Here are 5 more reasons you should hire a real estate agent:
- They are experts in their field
A real estate agent is someone with expert knowledge of the whole buying and selling process. From shopping around for your new home or getting ready to put it up for sale to finalizing your deal, a real estate agent will be able to assist you every step of the way.
Hiring an agent means tapping into their knowledge and experience. An experienced agent can explain the more complicated parts of the process to give you the confidence to make informed decisions.
- They have in depth knowledge
A good real estate agent knows everything there is to know about local neighborhoods. They are up to date with local market trends and know the best time to buy or sell so you can get the best deal possible.
An agent can provide details about the local community, including any future developments that can affect the value of your property.
- They enhance the buying or selling experience
Real estate agents can help buyers narrow down choices based on their wish list and clue them in on red flags during the process.
For sellers, a real estate agent has the tools to help make their property stand out from the competition. They know how to execute a marketing plan that will attract qualified buyers and yield the best offers.
- They are well connected
The best real estate agents maintain a network of industry professionals they can count on for related goods and services. They can give buyers a list of reliable home inspectors, moving companies, contractors, and the like. Agents can put sellers in touch with the best professional home stagers, real estate photographers, and more.
- They are master negotiators
Real estate agents are adept at the negotiation table and will have your best interests at heart.
They can help craft an offer that will stand up against other bidders. Sellers can expect their agent to handle bids and recommend the best offer based not only on price, but also on perks that will sweeten the deal like faster closing, buying the house “as is,” or offering to rent the property back to the seller for a few months to give them time to move out.
