Hire a real estate professional when buying a home
Hire a real estate professional when you buy a home. Yes, I know it is stating the obvious, but obtaining the services of a real estate professional is a step in buying a home. It is surprising to me that buyers sometimes skip this step. Why any buyer would go un-represented is a mystery to me but I see it all the time.
A professional real estate agent will earn their fee by assisting you in avoiding common real estate mistakes, sifting through all the junk listings on the market and analyzing your specific real estate needs and wants. Hire a real estate professional when buying a home and you cut out a lot of misery.
Searching for properties is still a big deal, even when Zillow and Trulia have tons of info and photos available for consumers. Though many consumers have access to Internet databases providing information on houses for sale, Realtors are alerted with detailed information the minute a new listing hits the market through access to computerized multiple listing services.
Once a “fit” is established with a target property, a real estate professional will negotiate the best deal on that property and make sure you are protected from undesirable outcomes. You should hire a real estate professional because they are a great negotiator, not because they are your hairdresser’s neighbor.
Hire a real estate professional when buying a home because they are neighborhood experts. Professional Realtors who specialize in a specific neighborhood or area earn their worth with their detailed, street-by-street knowledge of a local market’s intricacies. Comprehensive information about neighborhoods, schools, demographics, and a myriad of other particulars about an area is at their fingertips. They have walked through the houses that show up as comparables in the market analysis. They know which homes have leaking basements, dysfunctional floor plans and poor decorator selections. Additionally, if you’re looking for information on a specific home, your local Realtor can access foreclosure listings, expired listings, and recent sales not yet in public databases.
