Does it really make a difference to use a Local Realtor over an out of town agent?

Can't anyone buy or sell a house as long as they are licensed? local Alamogordo Realtor

What more do I really get out of using a local agent?

Why bother going with a Realtor over any other agent?

These are some of the main questions we hear when talking with buyers or sellers. Most non-real estate related folks don't even know there is a difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor. We want to answer these questions and give you an overall sense of the importance of using a local Alamogordo Realtor.

Why bother going with a Realtor over any other agent?

Realtors can only use this term when they subscribe and abide by the National Association of Realtors. This organization provides not only support and helpful forms and documents for transaction but also requires it's subscribers to adhere to a code of ethics unlike any other in any profession. We vow to work only for you and be committed to your transaction. We do not discriminate nor conduct unethical business practices in any way. At any time we can be reported to the NAR and loose this title of "Realtor". Choosing to be a part of this association allows us to set ourselves to a higher standard and provide top quality service to everyone we encounter including the opposite parties in a transaction.

Can't anyone buy or sell a house as long as they are licensed?

Yes. Whether you will receive the type of service you should on this multi-thousand dollar deal is another story. Just because an agent has taken the test does not mean they stay current on every real estate trend, market report and local laws. Using an Alamogordo Realtor will give you the peace of mind knowing your transaction is taken care of right.

What more do I really get out of using a local agent?

We hear it all the time; "I'm going to use my cousin's mother's friend as my agent. Trying to give her some business". While the thought may be nice, remember that you are buying an investment worth thousands if not ten's of thousands of dollars. Would you trust just anyone to invest that money in a stock for you? Probably not. Using a local Alamogordo real estate agent that knows not only the area but the local market and local sellers can really put you light-years ahead of your competition. Using a local Alamogordo Realtor to sell your home can offer you inside information on what's selling in your neighborhood. You are able to price the home right for the current buyers rather than guessing and chasing the market down.

Local Alamogordo Realtors know what school districts each home is in and how to best negotiate for the right terms and the right price for that area. Without a local Realtor, agents are shooting in the dark for what they "think" is the right offer.

Don't waste your time, money and energy on someone that is not an Alamogordo LOCAL Realtor.
