Do You Have a Personal Real Estate Agent?
Here is some reasons why you need to hire professional:
- Education and Experience
If you’re planning on buying a home, you may have already done some shopping around on your own. Perhaps you’ve checked out a few open houses or called the number on a For Sale sign to schedule a private viewing of that property.
Yes, you can do all of that on your own, if you have the time and expertise. However, statistics prove that you’ll be more successful in finding your dream home at the right price with your own personal real estate agent. We will alert you to new listings, quickly, so you get the jump on those opportunities.
- Realtor will take the emotion and stress out of the Transaction
This is the biggest financial (and possibly emotional) decision of your life, and guiding you through is our job. Whether you need more info on a home or just someone to talk to in order to feel at ease with the offer you just put in.
- Neighbourhood knowledge
A real estate agent, especially one who knows the local market well (like we do), can help you find and buy your ideal home, quickly, and make the entire process go smoothly for you. During a viewing, your real estate agent will give you the inside scoop on that property, so you know the full story. Your real estate agent will also point out desirable features, and potential “issues”, that you might otherwise miss.
- Honest Market Condition Information
We can provide you with information such as the average per square foot cost of similar homes, median and average sales prices, average days on market and ratios of list-to-sold prices, among other criteria, will have a huge bearing on what you ultimately decide to do.
- Professional Networking
We can do everything possible to help in the process of buying a home. Mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, home stagers, interior designers—the list goes on. Just ask us!
- Negotiation Skills and Confidentiality
When it comes time to make an offer, we will present and negotiate on your behalf such things as price, conditions, closing dates, etc. so you get the best deal. We will save you potentially thousands of dollars by ensuring you don’t overpay for the property you want.
- Handling Volume of Paperwork
Today’s purchase agreements run ten pages or more. Most real estate files average thicknesses from one to three inches of paper. One tiny mistake or omission could land you in court or cost you thousands.
Not every real estate agent offers all of these services. My clients say that we do. They also tell us how much they appreciate our professionalism, expertise and accessibility.
Bottom line: Your own personal real estate agent is there for you, every step of the way. At least, that’s how we work with our clients.
The best way to select the right real estate agent, is to meet with him or her in person. Ask questions. See if there is a good fit.
