One of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime will be to purchase or sell a home. For most people this can be both overwhelming, and exciting. The financial and personal impact this has should be taken very seriously. There should be no question whether to use a REALTOR® when selling or purchasing a home. Here is why:
Your REALTOR® Gets You The Reach
There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with the help of your REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property. Giving you the peace of mind that someone trustworthy and knowledgeable is handling the process.
Your REALTOR® has the Resources and Technology
When going it alone in the search for real estate it can be very overwhelming. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties. The technology and resources that your REALTOR® can offer is crucial in the success of selling or buying a home. Sometimes properties are not actively advertised in the market, having a REALTOR® to help you sort through the clutter is crucial in saving time and money.
Your REALTOR® Covers All the Details
There are many aspects that go into buying or selling a home that most people do not realize until their REALTOR® steps in. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. Your REALTOR® can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. Nothnagle Home Services has a number of vendors that are reliable and available to make the home buying and selling process run smoothly. This attention to detail is crucial to have before the purchase or sale of a property and can save you thousands in the long run.
Your REALTOR® Can Help with Contracts and Negotiations
Your REALTOR® can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing — a lot of possible pitfalls. Your REALTOR® can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process and to a smooth and easy sale.
Your REALTOR® Can Get It Done!
Lets face it, buying or selling a home can turn into a full time job. The stress, pressure, and duties involved in finding the perfect place or selling your property as soon as possible can be very overwhelming. Your REALTOR® is truly a jack of all trades, they will be there for you every step of the way, from marketing, to showing, to financing and closing there will always be someone there to give the assurance that you are doing it all right.
Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.
