With the internet at your fingertips, finding information on any topic has never been easier. The same is true when it comes to buying a house. Just a few clicks and house listings, photographs, legal information and neighbourhood reviews can all be found online, making house hunting quite easy.
When finding a home is this easy, do you still need to work with a real estate agent? The answer to that question is a definitive yes!
Here is what a real estate agent can do for you:
- An agent is a professional who knows the ins and outs of the market. They will know if the property you are looking at is priced at a fair value. Knowing if a property is under-priced or over-priced comes with years of training and expertise, and by working with an estate agent, you will be getting the best value for your money.
- Sometimes a seller may not want to advertise that they are selling their homes but will work with a real estate agent to sell it. In this case, the agent will be able to find you properties that are not available online.
- Paperwork is not fun. It will include the written offer, counteroffer, the repairs needed, and eventual contract for the sale. Leaving out crucial information or not understanding a certain point in the contracts can be detrimental to your transaction. Using a real estate agent who understands both the big and little issues is crucial to making the sale.
- It doesn’t cost the buyer anything to make use of a real estate agent. The agent is paid a commission by the seller after the sale is made. It means a buyer can benefit from the expertise of the real estate agent without having to cough up any extra cash.
Using a real estate agent to find your new home will save you a lot of time, money and eliminate any hassle with legal issues and paperwork.
