The public have unlimited access to so much real estate information on line, that some buyers and sellers wonder why they should use a real estate agent.
With everyone wanting to save money, some think real estate agents just add cost to the transaction and not much value.
Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase of your life. A Real Estate Agent has your best interests at heart and can save you from making any number of expensive mistakes.
One of the best reasons you should use a Real Estate Agent is their expertise and experience in solving problems that pop up on EVERY real estate transaction.
Experience and Expertise on Solving Problems That Are Encountered. There are so many components to a real estate transaction and so many people involved that it is very rare to have a transaction that doesn’t encounter at least a little turbulence along the way.
A Real Estate Agent has encountered many of these challenges before and has the knowledge to let the client know what their options area. For instance, if you don’t like the inspection, can you exit the contract? What happens to your earnest money if you exit a contract?
As a seller, do you have to fix everything that the buyer requests? If the home appraises lower than the purchase price, what are the buyers’ options? Do the sellers’ have any options? What happens if your lender does not approve your loan? What are the sellers’ options if the buyer does not get loan approval?
What if the title comes back with an unexpected lien on the home?
What if the HOA rules and regulations are something you can’t live with? What are your options?
