Why Work with A Real Estate Agent

Pia Johal November 23, 2021

Buying a new home is not an easy task. For most people, investing or selling a property is the biggest deal they will make in their entire life, so making sure you have a good Real Estate Agent helping you out is very important.

Experienced Real Estate Agents are:

  • Free to hire a buyer’s agent. Since 99.9% of the time it’s free to hire a buyer’s agent, it’s an obvious reason why you should hire a professional to represent your best interests in the purchase of a house.
  • Skilled house hunters. Agents have personally seen many listings and know of unlisted homes. Because agents tour so many homes and attend numerous inspections, they know the warning signs for expensive issues like failing roofs and water damage.
  • Master negotiators. They can get the terms and conditions you want. If you do the negotiating, without negotiating experience, your passion could compromise your ability to get what you want. Agents know how to frame requests in a way that makes sellers more likely to oblige, and they can do all the negotiating.
  • Financing wizards. There are many financial options. They can help you choose the right one.
  • Pricing Experts. If you are not sure if the house is overpriced or underpriced, ask your agent. They can help you avoid paying too much for a house, can use negotiation strategies to get you a better deal, and ensure you are fulfilling all contractual obligations, so you don’t end up in legal or financial hot water. When you’re ready to put an offer on a property, your agent should be able to help you determine an appropriate offer price based on the fair market value of the home and market conditions.
  • Paperwork-Tacklers. There are hundreds of pages of closing documents. Let your agent tear through them for you. Agents also have tools that make signing stacks of paperwork much less tedious. Many agents use digital signatures, email delivery systems, and mobile signing capability, so you won’t have to worry about going into an office multiple times to sign documents during the average escrow period. Thanks to this technology, you may even be able to complete your closing without ever leaving your home.
