Top 4 Reasons To Hire A Realtor

realtorWhen looking to buy or sell a home, it can be tempting to go at it alone. With all the tools available online today, it seems easy enough to purchase or sell a home, or at the very least tour homes on your own. However, this can end up being an expensive mistake if you're not careful. Here are the four top reasons why you need to hire a realtor for your home buying or selling process.

  1. Education and information: Oftentimes, realtors will have access to additional information not always available to the average homebuyer. Real estate agents will be able to look into this information to help you inform your home buying decision. In fact, 78% of recent buyers found their real estate agent to be a very useful information source.
  2. Neighborhood knowledge: If you're moving to an entirely new area, you'll need a realtor to help you pick out a home for you in an area that fits your needs. It can be difficult without input from a realtor to pick a neighborhood best suited to you; a real estate agent that knows the local neighborhoods of the area you're looking to move to can provide much needed input.
  3. Pricing assistance: Unless you've bought and sold several houses before, you might not know exactly what pricing standards are in place for buying and selling homes. A realtor with professional experience in the real estate market will be able to help you figure out a fair price for your home, based on comparable homes and the current real estate market.
  4. Paperwork and finances: The amount of paperwork and numbers involved in buying or selling a home can be completely overwhelming, especially for first-time home buyers. A realtor can make sure that all your documents are in order and everything that needs your signature is properly explained to you. This will help you avoid trouble once you're settling your closing costs.
