Homeowners usually only buy or sell a few times throughout their lives. A seasoned agent, on the other hand, helps hundreds of people buy and sell each year. You are likely already paying professionals for their expertise in your personal and professional lives. You put your money in the bank to protect it, or give it to a licensed mechanic to fix your car. Don’t just wing it when buying or selling a home. Get helpful guidance so you don’t make costly mistakes.
They’re on your side and negotiate the best overall deal for you.
Buying and selling a home requires you to complete several legal documents. Filling one out incorrectly or not understanding what you’re signing could lead to a very costly mistake. With the increase of online theft, it’s important to be very careful in this area. We’ve recently come under cyberattack during the escrow period of transactions via email scams.
Agents are trained negotiators. They’re on your side; they work diligently on your behalf, and negotiate the best overall deal for you. Legally, they are bound to do so.
What most buyers and sellers don’t realize is what they don’t know. For example, many homeowners putting homes for sale in 2019 chose to sell FSBO (for sale by owner). However, they ended up selling for an average of $80,000 less than agent-assisted sales, partially due to the expert negotiating skills of these agents.

One Response to “The Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Agent”
It’s great that you pointed out how real estate agents would work diligently on your behalf and negotiate the best overall deal for you. We think our current house doesn’t fit our needs anymore, so we are planning on buying a new one soon. We want to make sure that we are getting the best deal out there, so we should probably hire a real estate agent to help us out.
