Your real estate agent is the driver of the transaction. As such, he or she will steer the transaction around common roadblocks and avoid certain pitfalls. That is, if you choose the right agent.
What happens if you don't? Several things:
- Your house may not be priced properly.
- Your house may sit on the market longer than it should.
- If you're buying, you may end up paying more than you should.
- A complicated transaction, such as a short sale, may have details that are allowed to fall through the cracks.
Avoid these potential problems by hiring an experienced San Diego real estate agent. When selling your home, your first concern is getting the most money for the home. An agent familiar with the area is much better able to determine market value than one from outside the area.
A San Diego agent with proven marketing capabilities will get your house in front of more buyers than an agent who hasn't a clue about marketing. If you own a specialized home, such as a luxury home or beachfront property, or you are performing a short sale, you need an agent experienced in these types of sales.
When purchasing a home, you need a savvy negotiator in your corner - a San Diego agent who can go to bat for you and get you the best possible price on the home.
