An often asked question is: Should I use a Realtor or not? People often underestimate Realtors and their importance in a real estate transaction. On both sides of a sale the right real estate professional can be an invaluable asset, helping to keep deals together and run more smoothly.
For sellers Realtors are valuable in a number of ways. Realtors know the local market and how to evaluate the price your home should be listed for sale at and also can provide an estimate of what it will sell for. A real estate professional will advertise, market and expose your home to other real estate professionals as well as the community at large, not to mention the large customer base that they may already have. A Realtor can help you prepare your home for sale in today’s real estate market. Realtors are indispensable when it comes to negotiating contracts and inspection issues as well as making sure each step is carried out to the seller’s best interest.
For buyers a real estate broker can be an incredibly helpful tool when looking for real estate. The right Realtor knows his local West Chester, Beckett Ridge and Liberty Township, Ohio real estate market. He knows what is available and knows the community, its amenities and all that it has to offer. The right Realtor will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of the home an offer is being prepared on and will write a contract for the benefit of the buyer when the buyer has found this ideal property. The right Realtor can make recommendations on financing and will help the buyer follow through with each step until closing.
In a nutshell, the right Realtor is incredibly helpful in diminishing the stresses involved with buying and/or selling real estate. Contact an experienced Realtor in the area you are thinking of buying or selling property in today. Please let me know if I can assist you.
