Why Do you need an Agent

By

Why do you need an agent? 

An agent will qualify prospective buyers to understand what they can afford. You can save yourself time, effort and unnecessary anxiety by ensuring that the buyer is prequalified.

Good Real Estate Agents invariably have access to a variety of advertising including newspapers, magazines, and MLS service, giving you the exposure and access to a large audience.

Real Estate Agents are professionals whose job is to keep on top of the latest trends in the market, compare selling prices and allow sellers to establish realistic prices.

After years of closing deals, Real Estate Agents are honed to become good negotiators, knowing what to ask for and where. They can help you ask and answer unexpected questions and ally any doubts on part of the buyer, building trust and understanding during and after the deal.

Real Estate Agents pride themselves on continuously upgrading their professional qualifications with information about the latest innovations in technology, legislation, and market updates. You have the advantage of using the wealth of information that they acquire and practice in their job each day.

You will find Real Estate Agents believe and subscribe to a strict code of ethics. You will find them to be professional and able to serve you with integrity.

Your agent is the most interested in closing the deal and getting you a good sale price. They will give you suggestions and tips on sprucing up your home to prepare it for the highest dollar.

Entrust the sale / purchase of your house to me and reap the benefits that I can give you. Call me to discuss your needs.

Agents who become Realtors take a sworn oath to abide by the NAR's Code of Ethics. Good post, though. All FSBO's should read this.

A good Realtor has more experence in the last 3 months with real estate deals and seeing issues with houses than you will have in a lifetime.

 

Hey, sorry that you took the above comments as beind directed at you.  They were not, it was just a statement of how if you hire a professional vs doing things on your own thinking you are saving money you will be better off most of the time.
