Whether selling or purchasing a home you may be tempted to move forward without the use of a real estate agent, but it is important to take the following into consideration.
1. You are Already Busy
Perhaps the biggest factor most people underestimate when maneuvering the real estate market on their own is how time-consuming the process of selling or even buying a home can be. When you are already dealing with your own life and workload, it can be difficult adding more to your to do list. You will have to consider the time it takes to handle calls from potential buyers, scheduling home viewings, negotiating and reviewing contracts.
2. Professional Negotiators
An important aspect of real estate is negotiating. Whether it is selling or buying a property, there are a substantial number of negotiations that must occur before an agreement is met. A real estate agent however, is aware of the process and knows how things should be handled when it comes to negotiating.
3. Pricing Advice
In order to appropriately price the property, you are selling requires a keen understanding of the market. Pricing your property too high and not using the appropriate tools to market your property may result in a long wait time before you sell. In contrast not understating the market may lead you to overpay for a purchase. Nothing beats the knowledge an experienced agent can provide when purchasing or selling a property.
