Looking For A Home? Don't Push Your Luck! 4 Signs You Need A Pro!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage | Charlotte, NC

 

Even on St. Patrick's Day, finding the right place to call home requires more than "The Luck of the Irish." It requires the skill and insight of a professional. If you're in the process of buying a home, here are four signs that tell you it's time to call in a professional to help you eliminate the frustrations, unknowns, and variables.

 

Luck of the Irish... don't depend on it to buy a home

 

4 SIGNS IT'S TIME TO CALL IN A PROFESSIONAL WHEN BUYING A HOME

 

  1. You're realizing the inaccuracies of the internet

    While you can view tons of listings online, not all of the information is accurate or up-to-date. You'll find outdated values, conflicting forecasts, home listings that have been sold or never on the market. With access to the Multiple Listing Service and insight on properties about to hit the market, a Realtor® can provide you the latest and most accurate data.

  2. You're juggling a hectic schedule

    You don't need to spend time sorting through listings and contacting sellers and listing agents. Your Realtor® will do this research on your behalf to find the homes that best suit your needs and price range.

  3. The biggest thing you've negotiated lately was your kids' bedtime (and you lost)

    As professional negotiators with years of experience, Realtors® know how to create, present and negotiate the best offer on your behalf. Don't forget, you'll be going up against another professional negotiator... the seller's agent.

  4. You're unfamiliar with a neighborhood

    A local agent can give you the scoop about market developments and changes that you won't find online.  An experienced Realtor® can analyze the context of larger forces which could impact the future values of a home.

I like Sheila Anderson 's comment about people not knowing what they don't know. Then you get the people who think they know it all!

Thanks for sharing, Nina Hollander. All are certainly excellent reasons to hire a professional! In the end, it will likely save a lot of time and money for the client.

Hi Nina

Great post! While it's obvious to us when a buyer needs our help, it may not be so obvious to them what they need our help for, when (before it's too late) and why.

Nina Hollander - It's amazing how many calls I get from people who have no clue where the property is located. All they are looking at is PRICE. Oh, and the other thing that is misleading when buyers are looking online, is the offer of LOANS. So many properties are just not financeable.

Bruce Kunz ~ good morning, Bruce... not using a professional from the get-go is a perfect example of penny-wise and pound-foolish.

Jeff Dowler ~ good morning, Jeff... that's so true that maybe some buyers don't know the value we bring to a transaction, but then it's our fault as an industry and professionals for not "telling our story."

Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® ~ hi Hello... I get those calls too... "what do you mean there are no 5 bedroom homes in Charlotte for under $200,000? I've seen plenty of them on Zillow." When I ask for a zip code, my response is "so you want to live where all the crack deals go down in Charlotte?"  Usually the answer is no.

Gabe Sanders ~ good morning, Gabe... I agree that many buyers don't know what they don't know... but that being said, I also think we as an industry have not always been good about explaining our value. Those NAR commercials certainly don't do it.

We have moved from area to area over the years when we were in the construction business. Always hired a local agent to get the inside scoop on an area, especially when the children were younger and attending school and sports.
