Why You Shouldn’t Forego a Realtor
The world in changing and consumers clearly have more and more control. Applications help people bypass cabs and connect directly with other drivers, bypass hotels and stay with people in their homes and bypass car rentals by just borrowing some one else’s car. This new revolution might inspire some of those in the real estate market, on the buying and selling end, to take straight to the internet and bypass working with a Realtor. Here’s why you should resist heading that route.
You Can Benefit From an Expert
About 90% of those who purchase a home are using financing. That is truly complicated. Hiring a real estate agent is a great way to understand how that circumstances changes the way rational people act. For example, if a couple tours your home, truly adores it and offers you $5,000 below, sometimes it’s good to say no. However, sometimes they aren’t trying to low-ball you, it’s just that that’s all they have been approved to finance. A Realtor is very handy when navigating these exchanges.
Relationships Are Important
Did you know that 73% of people who have used a real estate agent before plan to use the same one again if they should decide to sell and/or purchase? Especially if you live in a competitive real estate market, a good Realtor can be your best friend. You can spend less time researching a new home because your real estate agent can give you a ring when a house on a preferred block or school district becomes available! You may not ever know that some properties are available, but a good Realtor will.
A Realtor Gets It
If you are moving to another city, you really have to invest in real estate services. The average first time buyer is just over 30 years old while those purchasing for the second time are usually 50 years old. A Realtor will help guide you to a neighborhood that makes sense for your age, family, hobbies, life outlook, political affiliation or any other identifier you choose to disclose.
There is nothing wrong with being a more independent-minded buyer. So, go forth and use the internet to empower your real estate experience. However, never underestimate the multitude of ways bringing a Realtor in for some human-touch can be helpful.
