Why Use A Realtor?

Seven Reasons You Should Use A Realtor To Buy Or Sell A Home

A real estate transaction is one of the largest and most important business deals a person will make in their life. It is in your best interest to use a trained professional when there is so much money on the line.

  1. Realtors® Have Relationships With Lenders
    Often times, Realtors® have negotiated dozens if not hundreds of deals, and in the course, developed strong relationships with many of the top lenders in their area. They have learned the ins and outs, and this knowledge helps both buyers and sellers get to the closing table much faster.
  2. Resources
    Not all properties for sale are listed on the national databases. A Realtor® can ensure that they are, and often has the resources necessary to promote the promotion and eventual sale of your home.
  3. Knowledge of the Area
    Realtors® are experts in their neighborhoods and areas. This expertise can prove essential to finding the right neighborhood that you want to live in.
  4. Negotiate
    A Realtor® has ample training and experience in negotiating the sale of a home. As with any type of business transaction, negotiating power is crucial to getting the best deal possible.
  5. Trained Inspectors
    Many Realtors® have been around the block long enough to know a good or bad home even with very little evaluation. When it comes closer to closing time, Realtors also have many contacts with inspectors that will make getting your home approved for sale that much easier.
  6. They Know Their Paperwork
    For someone unfamiliar with the process, closing on a home can be a fiasco. Luckily, Realtors® are trained to handle the necessary paperwork and make the process go as smooth as possible.
  7. They Don’t Let Strangers Into Your Home
    Realtors® often prescreen potential buyers to save you time and energy that you might otherwise use entertaining unserious buyers
