The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Real Estate Agent

When considering selling or purchasing a property, one wants the best guidance – especially in this active real estate market. A great way to navigate selling or buying a home is by working with an experienced real estate agent. A local agent has the area expertise, marketing knowledge and familiarity with transaction requirements to help keep everything above board. Following are just some of the benefits of hiring an experienced local agent for your home sale or purchase:

  1. An agent will carefully lead you through the transaction and can negotiate on your behalf. Selling or buying a home involves dealing with multiple contacts and contracts including the buyer or seller, their agent, home inspection company, the appraiser, banks and sometimes attorneys. Your agent can help you navigate all the hoops in a timely and efficient manner so that you can experience a smooth and seamless transaction.

  2. There’s no substitute for a professional agent who has local expertise. Agents typically specialize in specific areas and neighborhoods, giving them a clear understanding of nuances and factors, like trending and emerging neighborhoods. Additionally, experienced agents are often familiar with pocket listings and homes about to come on the market, giving their clients a clear advantage.

  3. An agent can provide a competitive market analysis (CMA) that shows comparable properties for sale, days on market, price trends and much more. This can help you price your home right the first time, an important factor that minimizes the chances of price reductions or having your home sit on the market for too long.
