3 Important Functions Of A Buyers Real Estate Agent
YOU'VE DECIDED TO BUY A HOUSE. YOU ARE LOOKING AT PROPERTIES ON SITES LIKE ZILLOW AND TRULIA. YOU BEGIN TO SEARCH FOR A REAL ESTATE AGENT TO HELP YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS.
HERE ARE ESSENTIAL THINGS AN AGENT WILL HELP YOU DO:
1. Help the buyer negotiate possibly the largest asset your family will own, your home.
Deciding the offer to make on a home is not the only negotiating an agent will do, but possibly also after a home inspection, an appraisal and other times during the contract prior to closing.
2. Point out potential issues that could affect the resale price of a home.
Real Estate agents attend a lot of home inspections and read each of the reports. They can tell you things from experience things that could be possible issues before you have an inspector take a look.
3. Educating the buyer about the market.
Home values like Zestimates are an interesting place to start, but they are not accurate. The sophisticated algorithm used does not consider all the market intricacies that can determine the actual price a house will sell for. Buyers should rely on their Realtor to provide them with data about comparable homes, days on market and all the local real estate data.
Ultimately the buyer will decide what home, price and terms they wish to offer. They should however, rely on their Realtor to guide them towards an educated offer on the home, navigate potential issues and negotiation in the buyer's best interests.
You can certainly start your home search without an agent, get an idea for what you like and what is on the market. I mentioned a couple of sites already, but if you want to have accurate, up-to-date listing information, you can search the MLS from here: http://ana.newagerealestate.net
