Whether you are buying or selling, enlisting the assistance of a real estate professional will help you navigate through one of your most important investment decisions.
As a Seller, knowing how much to ask for your property is vital – ask too much and your house sits on the market without an Offer – ask not enough and your profit could be limited. Your Realtor will identify recent neighbourhood sales, current competition and expired listings, in order to help you price your home to sell for the most amount of money in the least amount of time. Your agent handles all paperwork and marketing, property inquiries plus pre-qualifies Buyers before they walk through your home thereby ensuring that your interests are always protected.
As a Buyer, your real estate agent is committed to helping you find a home for your family that you will be happy with for many years to come. She will disclose current market conditions, share knowledge about the neighbourhood and any known material facts about the property, handle all paperwork and negotiate for the best conditions and price on your behalf – without cost to you.
Real Estate Agents network with a wide range of other professionals like mortgage specialists, home inspectors, and lawyers and can provide a list of choices in each profession that you can contact and choose to help you with all the other aspects of buying or selling.
Even after closing, a committed Realtor will be dedicated and will stay in touch with you because building and maintaining a relationship is more important than obtaining a transaction. Satisfied clients will recommend their agent to their friends and family and few agents can be successful without referrals!
Buying or Selling a home is serious business – no doubt about it – and it just makes sense to work with a professional who has the education and expertise to ensure that your biggest investment is a wise one and one that will pay off now and in the future.
