WHY DO I NEED A REALTOR?
Thursday Jul 01st, 2021
With MLS, many Apps, and other open access to a hot real estate market, people often ask the question: “WHY DO I NEED A REALTOR®”? I’m here to tell you why, as well as how it is going to save AND/OR make you money.
HERE ARE MY TOP 5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD ALWAYS USE A REALTOR®:
1) WE ARE EXPERTS, IT’S WHAT WE DO
A real estate transaction is full of forms, documents, and lots of mumbo jumbo legal jargon. We speak the language and can help our clients know and understand exactly what they’re doing and signing. We know what to look for and help you avoid delays and costly mistakes.
2) SUPERIOR NEGOTIATING SKILLS
It’s our job to get you the best possible price for your home, or to see that you get the best possible deal on the property you want to buy. We know what works, and what does not. We are also trained to detect issues that could go unnoticed and use them for our client’s advantage. Allowing a realtor with no emotional attachment to the home can also help get you what you want and what you deserve. No matter how level-headed you are, when it comes to your potential future home, it can get emotional. And that’s okay, it’s an exciting time but why not get the best deal possible!?
3) INFORMATION AND SEARCH POWER
We know what’s going on in the market and have connections to larger pools of potential buyers/sellers to help get a deal done. We have access to information that help you find what you need quicker and capitalize on potential opportunities.
When buying or selling, chances are you’re going to need third party professionals along the way. Home repairs, staging, inspectors, lawyers, the list goes on and we have those contacts. Instead of researching and reaching out to them on your own, you can tap into our network of proven and vetted contractors to help you real estate journey a good one.
5) EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
Chances are this is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make. A home is so much more than just some walls and a roof and can be a very emotional process. We are here to keep you focused on the issues most important and keep things in check so emotional mistakes are not being made. From over pricing your home to giving in to easily because you have a deadline for selling, we can be your rock and help guide and support you through the process.
Please contact me if you have any questions or just want to talk real estate!
