What a Real Estate Agent Can Do For You
Hiring a Realtor is an important step of the home buying process, especially for your first home. A licensed real estate agent has access to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) in your community as well as information about properties that may not even be on the market yet. While as many as 80% of people start their home hunting online, the experience and knowledge of a real estate agent cannot be overstated.
Your agent will be your representative in negotiations and can also show you available homes in your price range that meet your desired criteria. They also act as your advocate and act as your “clear eyes” to point out property defects or issues that you may overlook at first glance. They will arrange necessary property inspections and are responsible to make sure that any required repairs are completed prior to the closing.
70% of buyers contact only one agent when beginning their home search. If you are looking for a second opinion, or would like a list of trusted agents in your area, please contact us here.
