Here are three reasons why good representation matters in real estate.
Real estate experts bring a lot to the table, or at least we think they do. They guide you through what can be a pretty difficult situation, but some people strongly disagree. Today, we’re going to go over three reasons why you should hire a real estate or mortgage professional:
1. Things can and will go wrong. Whether or not you hire an expert, the chances of you having a totally smooth transaction are very low. When negotiations stall or a feature about the house becomes a hang-up, your experienced professional can help you navigate the situation.
“A good agent can get you the best deal possible.”
2. Your family friend probably won’t cut it. Many people end up choosing someone they know personally as their agent who just got their license as a hobby a few months ago. The truth is that these people aren’t really reliable experts since they don’t have much experience. If you want to ensure you have a good transaction, you need to work with someone who has been in your situation hundreds of times.
3. People who don’t work with agents usually overpay. If you’re buying a home and are relying on the listing agent to give you accurate information, you might be in for a bad time. The truth is that your seller hired that agent for the same reason you should hire one: They want to get the best deal possible. Get your own representation and protect your interests.
