Today I would like to talk to you about 5 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Professional When Buying or Selling!

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it can be quite the journey. You need an experienced real estate professional to guide you throughout the real estate transaction.  With strong buyer demand in many markets, many sellers think that they can For Sale by Owner or FSBO.

The 5 reasons you NEED a real estate professional in your corner haven’t changed, but have rather been strengthened by the projections of higher mortgage interest rates & home prices as the market continues to pick up steam.

1. How do you deal with all the paperwork?

Every state has different regulations regarding real estate contracts required for a successful sale.  These regulations are frequently changing. A real estate professional is an expert in his or her market and can guide you through the complicated paperwork necessary to make the sale or purchase of your home a reality.

2. You found your dream house – what’s next?

There are over 200 potential actions that need to take place during every successful real estate transaction. You want someone with the experience and knowledge who will make sure the job gets done.

3. Are you a good negotiator?

Maybe you’re not convinced you need a real estate agent to sell your home. After looking at the list of parties you’ll need to be prepared to negotiate with, you’ll soon realize the value in using a real estate professional. From the buyer (who wants the best deal possible), to the home inspection company, to the appraiser, there are at least 11 different entities you will need to be knowledgeable of, and answer to, during the process.

4. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?

It is important for your home to be priced correctly from the start to attract the right buyers and shorten the amount of time it’s on the market. You need someone who is not emotionally connected to your home, someone who will give you the truth as to your home’s value. According to a study by Collateral Analytics, FSBO’s achieve prices significantly lower than those from similar properties sold by real estate agents:

“FSBOs tend to sell for lower prices than comparable home sales, and in many cases below the average differential represented by the prevailing commission rate.”

5. Do you know what’s really going on in the market?

There is so much information on the news and the internet about home sales, prices, and mortgage rates.  How do you know what’s going on specifically in your neighborhood? Who do you turn to in order to competitively and correctly price your home at the beginning of the selling process? How do you know what to offer on your dream home without paying too much, or offending the seller with a lowball offer?

Hiring an agent who has his or her finger on the pulse of the market will make your buying or selling experience an educated one. You need someone who is going to tell you the truth, not just what you want to hear.
