If you’ve ever bought or sold a home, you know it can be a very complex, confusing and involved process. From listing to closing, there is a lot of things to know, do and take care of. Do you know them all? A Realtor does. In fact, navigating the buying process is a lot easier with the help of a Realtor.
Do you know how to find listings to go and see?
Searching listings to find homes that fit your needs and wants? Sure, you can use the plethora of real estate web pages, but if you want to be sure to get the listings you need to see, only a Realtor can find them all.
Once you find them how will you make the appointments to actually see them? Do you want to call and deal with the owners yourself? Do you think they will take you seriously?
Negotiating the price
Ok, now you found the home you want, do you know the ins and outs of negotiating the price? Do you have someone around to advise what it is really worth? What about counter-offering if the sellers come back with a counter to your initial offer?
Do you know what kinds of things can be negotiated in lieu of more or less money? Things like seller [pays for X and buyer pays for Y]. A really motivated seller can be persuaded into paying things like closing costs for the buyer. Do you know to even ask?
Good to go
The contract is signed and you’re good to go, right? Wrong. Now there are appraisals, inspections, repairs and all kinds of paperwork to shuffle. A Realtor will know what is needed when, who to call and how to get it done on time.You’re going to make the biggest purchase of your life. Do you really want to do it alone, without an expert to help guide you through it?
