Five Important Reasons To Use A Realtor

Sponsored Content provided by Neal Johnson - Licensed Real Estate Broker , Network Real Estate

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, it’s important to hire a professional to assist you with each step of the process.

Unfortunately, many different mistakes can be made with the transaction if you don't have several years of experience in the real estate industry.

Here are a few important reasons that you'll want to use the services of a professional realtor:


1. Neighborhood knowledge

Real estate agents are extremely knowledgeable about different neighborhoods and can help you to determine the right price for the home you want to sell. You may be aware that a house down the street was listed for $300,000, but you may not know that it sold for less after several months of the market.


2. Negotiation skills

Realtors are skilled and experienced in negotiating to ensure that you get more money for your home or obtain a great deal on a house you make an offer on. Realtors are trained professionals capable of delivering the buyer's offer in the best light and creating a good relationship with the seller. They will also keep all the information confidential and will have your best interest in mind.


3. Turbocharged searching power

Although you may have the ability to find multiple listings in the local area when shopping for a new home, realtors are capable of getting more results due to advanced tools they have available. The realtor can find listings that may not be advertised and can also direct you to a property that is in your price range, which will allow you to have more options that are available.


4. Professional networking

Realtors are connected to other professionals in the industry who can provide you with different resources that make it easier to buy or sell. You can have access to an extensive list of vendors that offer competitive pricing and won't want to ruin their reputation with the realtor after they're hired. You'll easily be connected to handymen or inspectors that are available locally and have established a good reputation.


5. They follow a strict code of ethics

Realtors are licensed and belong to the National Association of Realtors, which requires them to be held to a higher standard. They are required to follow a strict code of ethics to ensure that they are honest and have your best interest in mind when providing their services.
