Is Hiring A REALTOR® The Right Move For Me?
Posted by Garman Group on
When buying or selling your home, it can be tempting to try to do it yourself to save some money on REALTOR® fees. You figure you can just Google it and find out everything you need to know, right? But unless you have real experience, REALTORS® are here for a reason and will make your home selling and/or buying process SO much smoother.
We Know The Rules
We're trained, certified real estate agents who understand the fine print in that contract you're signing not to mention all the other legalities of buying and/or selling a home. Instead of spending hours researching all the terms and regulations around buying and selling (and likely ending up VERY confused!), hire a REALTOR® then sit back and relax.
We Know How To Get A Good Price
You can’t simply look at your property assessment or the selling price of your neighbour’s home and come up with a selling price. There's a lot more to the home pricing equation.
Once we work with you on finding the perfect price for your home, we'll negotiate on your behalf to make sure you get it. The same goes for buying. We'll work with you to ensure you're getting a fair price when purchasing a home.
If you’re not skilled at negotiation, and even if you are, it can be overwhelming dealing with pressure from the other party.
We Know Where The Properties Are
You may see hundreds of properties online and think that’s more than enough, but as REALTORS®, we get a heads up on what's coming on the market but isn’t advertised yet. We also know of new developments and when they'll be ready for sale. It’s very likely your dream home is one you won’t find online.
We Will Save You Time
Once we know what you and your family are looking for in a home, we'll show you the best properties that are right for you. No one wants to waste their time and energy looking at homes that aren’t a good fit.
We'll also take care of scheduling the walkthroughs of your home for sale so it suits your schedule, minimizing disruption for your family.
We Give Your Home More Visibility
Registered REALTORS® belong to a network called MLS, the multiple listing service, which is used by real estate brokers for many reasons including having access to a central database of all listed homes for sale. Anyone can view most of the information on their site, however, you can only be listed if you're selling your home with a registered MLS REALTOR®.
We Will Offer Impeccable Service
Now that we've (hopefully!) shown you the many benefits of hiring a professional REALTOR®, you may be wondering how to choose the right one. Find someone who will work hard for you and who knows your city inside and out.
