It is often a subject of debates: should you or shouldn’t you hire an experienced real estate agent? Although at least 80 percent of real estate transactions occur with a real estate agent, some buyers or sellers still prefer to do things in their own why. If you’re on the fence, this post will help convince you to hire a seasoned real estate agent.
A deep understanding of home financing.
Whether it’s your first time to purchase a home, assistance when it comes to home financing is always welcome. An experienced real estate agent will have a broad yet deep knowledge of home financing, saving you from plenty of stress and headaches in case.
Experienced real estate agents, through their years in the industry, have built a network of trusted professionals that can aid you in your real estate journey. They can give you referrals on lenders, appraisers, and contractors.
If you’re a first-time homebuyer, you can trust your agent to help you understand all the additional costs that comes with buying a home, like taxes, maintenance, and home insurance.
Always updated with the latest on real estate.
You can check your local MLS and even social media for property listings, but you can always trust a seasoned real estate professional to know these things as soon as it hits the market.
Aside from the latest property listings, you’ll also have access to market information, which will benefit you regardless of whether you’re buying or selling. A seasoned real estate agent will be your voice of reason—is that property priced too high or just right? Are you making a wise investment? Your agent will guide you to the light.
Access to marketing expertise
Having closed numerous sales in the past, an experienced real estate agent will help you generate interest for your listing, and eventually close the transaction. You’ll be able to determine the right asking price for your property, compare home prices in the neighborhood, and court buyers. If you’re contemplating on doing an FSBO, you’ll have to learn the complex process of home-selling all by yourself.
