WHY WOULD I EVER USE A REAL ESTATE AGENT

A good realtor is there for you every step of the way during your home transaction, making the process seem simple and easy.  If you haven’t spent time with a real estate agent, you may not understand how much work they put in for a home and for their business. Here is a little insight of the many things they have to do:


  • Schedule Showings & Listing Appointments

  • Maintain Required Continuing Education

  • Deliver Earnest Money On Time

  • Coordinate Property Inspections

  • Keep Up With Mortgage Company Progress

  • Verify Buyers Ordered New Homeowner’s Insurance & Home Warranty

  • Negotiate Counteroffers & Necessary Repairs

  • Coordinate, Schedule & Attend Closings

  • Get All Disclosures Delivered & Signed

  • Keep The Transaction On Track

  • Return Emails/Calls/Texts ASAP

  • Follow Up With Online Inquiries

  • Keep Up With Changing Laws

  • Run Comparables for Buyers & Sellers

  • Determine Accurate Pricing

  • Explain Current Real Estate Market

  • Make Sure The Loan Funds

  • Get Signed Contract to Title Company

  • Provide Comps for the Appraiser

  • Review HUD-1 for Errors

  • Explain the Contract to Clients

  • Provide Advice on Offer Price

  • Explain Pros & Cons of Each Neighborhood

  • Dispute Low Appraisals

  • Verify Delivery of Title Commitment

  • Remind Clients to Schedule Utilities

  • Compete with 1,000’s of Realtors for Business

  • Keep MLS Listing Data Current

  • Attend Real Estate Conferences

  • Network with Local Home Builders

  • Coordinate Open Houses

  • Check Up On Past Clients

Overwhelmed, yet?  This is only an insight of the many things they do but it takes a lot of patience and hours to aggressively negotiate on your behalf.  With all that work, it is beneficial to have a real estate agent on your side.  They have education and experience to be good negotiators during a process which otherwise could be difficult if you did it on your own.  Evaluating and selling a property are important decisions which should be put in the hands of a competent professional.  Intensive knowledge of the local market allows the agents to decide on how to evaluate a property, how to best place & present it on the market and which sales strategy best applies.  Having an agent will guide you through all the stages of the home buying/selling process but also meet your needs in the most advantageous manner.

So if you’re selling your home or searching for a new place to call home, look for an experienced real estate agent near you.  They can help you through any home situation.
