With All The Information I Can Get On the Internet Why Would I Need A Real Estate Professional?
Well that's a good questions but there is a good answer too. Yes information is everywhere now. You can learn the ins and outs and details of every home and you may know it better than most Real Estate Agents. However the knowledge an experienced Real Estate Agent has is invaluable when moving you through a real estate transaction. Not only will they have represented hundreds of buyers and sellers in which they've gained tremendous experience but they will be able to bring a level of calm and structure to the transaction that will guide you through until the day of closing.
The Real Estate Agent will have access to the most updated statistical data and trends which translates into saving you many thousands of dollars. From inventory reports to time on market to how many homes were listed but never sold they will be able to provide you all the information you need to be able to make smart decisions for your family. You will also need their unbiased opinions and advice in order to sell your home. From staging the home to preparation to dealing with the ins and outs of buyer home inspections and negotiations a Real Estate Agent will be able to guide you through every aspect in the most positive way for you.
Yeah ok but what about buyers? Well as a buyer yes you can look at most all the homes available on the market on-line and you can call the listing agents to try and get inside but the fact of the matter is that a listing agent has a legal obligation to the Seller to make them the most money for the transaction and they've already negotiated with the Seller what amount will be paid to the Buyer's agent on the transaction. A good Buyer's agent will not only make the process seamless for you but they will be able to capture and secure you the best deal you can possibly get because they can crunch the numbers and analyze the market so that you are not paying too much. They will also be able to advise you on every aspect of the home inspections and warranty information. Plus there fee that has already been negotiated to be paid by the Seller so you'd be silly not using a Buyer's agent because you don't need to pay them. Why would you ever not use a Buyer's agent?
