With the rise of the internet and so much information at your fingertips, you may be wondering if you need to work with a real estate agent. While there are many projects you can do yourself, you’ll want to leave this task to the professionals.
Working with a REALTOR®
Did you know that not every real estate agent is a REALTOR®? A real estate agent has taken the necessary classes and passed the real estate exam, where a REALTOR® follows a strict Code of Ethics, set by the National Association of REALTORS®. This added layer of continuing education ensures that your best interests are always being protected.
Network of Professionals
When you work with the Nelson Riddle Team, you’ll have access to our network of professionals. We’ve already done the leg work so you don’t have to. You’ll still have some decisions to make, such as which vendor you will be working with, but you can rest easy knowing that we can provide reliable contacts.
Another added benefit of working with a REALTOR® is their experience. This covers a wide range of items such as contracts and being familiar with the market. You’ll want someone who understands all the necessary disclosures to protect your best interests. It’s also helpful to have someone who visits a multitude of different properties and is a neighborhood expert. Because of the time they have spent touring properties, they will know how each home stacks up against another.
A REALTOR® can give you the best insight for how much money you should offer on a home, and how to make your offer stronger when buying in a competitive market. They will also be able to evaluate an offer on the home, and help explain which offers will most benefit you. Additionally they can make recommendations of how to best counter an offer.
Not only will a great real estate agent have experience in the current market, they will also know how to properly market your property. There are many ways to market a new listing, from print advertisement to expanding your homes reach in the digital world. An agent also means you’ll be able to have your house listed on the Multiple Listings Service (MLS). Getting your home on the MLS will be important when it comes to getting the most amount of eyes on a given property.
