Here’s the thing, hypothetically you could buy or sell a house all on your own. But should you? We’re here today to tell you no, we don’t think you should. Over our many years in the real estate field, we’ve seen a lot of people struggle with both selling their homes and/or trying to buy a new home without the help of a professional. And, unfortunately, most of the time the results from this struggle don’t end up in their favor. Because here’s the reality: trying to maneuver through the real estate field could easily get you caught in a land mind. So, before you go KABOOM, let us pull you to safety.
Here are 4 reasons why you can’t afford NOT to hire a real estate agent.
People get paid to be real estate agents for a reason: they know what they’re doing. Real estate agents have not only studied the field, but more than that, they are actively involved in the buying and selling of homes on a regular basis.
We like to explain it this way… at your place of work, you know what you’re doing, don’t you? Well, that’s because, when you do something day in and day out, you learn the ins and outs. So what seems complex to other people is easy for you because it’s your job.
Real estate agents are masters of real estate. So, all of the tough questions that you can’t seem to find the answers to they already know the answers— what to do, how to do it and when to do it.
Real estate agents know their stuff so you don’t have to.
Negotiating is an art form. And if you aren’t used to real estate negotiations, this process can get a little sticky.
The great thing about hiring a real estate agent is that you get the help of someone who understands the entire process of real estate negotiation. They’ve done it all before, and they can therefor act as help advisors in your situation. This will help you steer through the real estate process without getting messed up in the muck.
Forget about poor negotiating skills and just let someone else do the talking for you.
You want to be sure that in the process of selling your home or buying a new home that you aren’t getting ripped off. Losing money can easily happen if you’re unsure of how the real estate market works.
Hiring a real estate agent allows you the opportunity to assess your home’s value based on the current market. Real estate agents have been trained to sell and market homes based on the local market in order to give home owners the most bang for their buck.
Remember, real estate is ever-changing and its important that you have an agent who can keep you ahead in the game.
Do know how many pages go in to one mortgage agreement? We won’t tell you the exact number… but know that that it’s a lot! Sorting through and managing the financial and legal responsibilities of buying or selling a home is a major task. And if you’re already working full time, it will be extra hard to find the hours to do it.
Real estate agents are paid to handle all the paperwork for your home.
And because you’re hiring a professional to handle this aspect of your buying or selling process, you don’t have to worry about small mistakes or errors that could cost you countless dollars or time to remedy.
