It’s been said that when you hire people who are smarter than you are, it proves you are actually smarter than they are. This proves true, especially hiring and working with a competent real estate advisor, because their knowledge and expertise will not only save you time and money, but also provide you with high value home intelligence to protect your home buying or selling interests.
Agents either possess intimate knowledge or they know where to find the industry buzz about your neighborhood. They can identify comparable sales and hand these facts to you, in addition point you in the right direction where you can find more data on schools, crime or demographics.
Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select prices for sellers or buyers. However, an agent will help to guide you to make the right choices by disclosing market conditions, which will in turn govern the selling or buying process, and eventually the price. Some factors to determine in this process include data, such as the average per square foot cost of similar homes, median and average sales prices, average days on market and ratios of list-to-sold prices, among other criteria, will have a huge bearing on what you ultimately decide to do.
Once a decision is made top producing real estate agents negotiate well because, unlike most buyers and sellers, they can remove themselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction and present their client’s case in the best light while keeping client information confidential from competing interests. With that in mind real estate agents take the spam out of your property showings for sellers and home visits for buyers, through filtering through all those phone calls that lead to nowhere and keeping the builder’s agents, or any other agent who has a fiduciary responsibility for someone else, at bay. Having your interests protected is paramount and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
