The Real Estate Company is a team of realtors and brokers who are members of the National Association of Realtors and abide by its strict Code of Ethics. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, here are seven ways you can benefit from working with one of our experienced realtors.
A Good Realtor Will…
Serve As Your Expert Guide
Whether you are buying or selling a home, a variety of reports, disclosures, forms, and other legal and financial documents will be required. Having a knowledgeable real estate agent that knows what is required on your end of the deal will help you avoid delays and costly mistakes. A lot of argot is involved during a real estate transition so you’ll want to work with a professional that can speak the language otherwise you might feel uncertain about the terms and conditions of the deal.
Offer Objective Opinions And Information
The best real estate agents are the ones that help you navigate through the home search with an unbiased eye, helping you find what you are looking for while staying within your budget. Agents are a great resource to have when you have questions regarding the community, utilities, contractors, zoning rules, and more.
Provide Expanded Search Power
In this market, you want access to the entire range of possibilities. By using a cooperative system known as the multiple listing service, your agent can help you assess all the current active listings that meet your list of criteria, alert you as soon as listings come on the market, and provide data regarding recent sales. Your agent will help you save time by helping you eliminate properties that might still be on public websites but are sold or under contract.
On Your Side As You Make Negotiations
In a real estate transaction, you can expect that there will be several factors up for discussion. Everything from price to repairs to the day the keys will exchange hands will likely be negotiated. A real estate professional that is representing you will thoroughly look through the transaction from your perspective and proceed to help you negotiate a purchase agreement centered on your needs and allow you to establish your terms before you become bound to the purchase.
Provide An Up-To-Date Experience
If you’ve bought a house in the past, it has probably been a few years since you closed on that property. Laws and regulations have most likely changed. Realtors will likely handle hundreds or even thousands of transactions during their career and can help you understand the most current laws.
Offer Emotional Support During The Hard Moments
A house is much more than four walls and a roof. For sellers, it can be hard to detach yourself from a place where you’ve made so many memories. And as a buyer, this is going to be one of, if not the, biggest purchase you will ever make. Having a third-party that shows concern but keeps you focused on the most important issues when emotions start to influence an otherwise smooth deal is key.
Give All Clients Fair And Ethical Treatment
As you start your search for the right realtor, ask if they are a member of the National Association of Realtors. Every member is required to follow the Realtor Code of Ethics, centered around professionalism, serving the interests of clients, and protecting the public. Any of our realtors at The Real Estate Company would love to help you find the home you’ve been dreaming about.
