Why Use a Realtor for your Next Home Purchase?

  1. 1. How The RIGHT Realtor Can Help You! The Halle Group wants to share with you why not only using a Realtor will make the process of selling and buying easier on you, but how choosing The RIGHT Realtor can make a world of differences!
  2. 2. Relying On An Agent by Carla Hill <ul><li>The latest NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers showed a growing trend </li></ul><ul><li>among recent buyers. </li></ul><ul><li>The latest figures show that 89 percent of buyers purchased their home with </li></ul><ul><li>the help of a real estate or broker. This is a sharp increase from a decade ago </li></ul><ul><li>in 2001, when only 69 percent of buyers enlisted the help of an agent or </li></ul><ul><li>broker. </li></ul><ul><li>Why do today's buyers buyers choose to work with an agent? Let's look at </li></ul><ul><li>just a few of the many reasons an agent can be your biggest ally. </li></ul><ul><li>First, agents are licensed professionals, which means they had to complete </li></ul><ul><li>coursework and pass an exam in order to become and agent. They have the </li></ul><ul><li>education and experience to help you navigate what will be one of the </li></ul><ul><li>biggest purchases of your life. </li></ul><ul><li>They also have access to a wide range of properties and can guide you to </li></ul><ul><li>those that are the best fit for you, which can save you time and energy. If you </li></ul><ul><li>are unsure what type of property you're interest in, an agent can help explain </li></ul><ul><li>the pros and cons of things such as condo life versus single family detached </li></ul><ul><li>living. </li></ul><ul><li>Where are the up and coming neighborhoods? Which areas are more </li></ul><ul><li>walkable or have access to better schools? These are all issues an agent deals </li></ul><ul><li>with daily. </li></ul><ul><li>They can also ease the burden of buying by simplifying the process. They set </li></ul><ul><li>up showings, drive </li></ul><ul><li>you to appointments if needed, and help you handle the intricacies of negotiations. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Today's market also presents challenges that simply weren't present or didn’t </li></ul><ul><li>dominate the market a decade ago. Buyers are faced with some great deals, </li></ul><ul><li>but through some complicated channels, such as short sale or foreclosure. </li></ul><ul><li>How does one handle these sort of contracts? Your agent or broker will know. </li></ul><ul><li>According to the NAR, &quot;More than ever home buyers are relying on real </li></ul><ul><li>estate agents and brokers to help them with their home purchase regardless </li></ul><ul><li>of whether the home they are buying is a foreclosure, short sale, or even a </li></ul><ul><li>FSBO sale because they need a real estate agent to help them through the </li></ul><ul><li>process.” </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, buyers are unsure if now is really a good time to buy. They need to </li></ul><ul><li>rely on someone with local market knowledge. Is this a good neighbor to </li></ul><ul><li>invest in? Are prices still dropping in this community? How long do homes </li></ul><ul><li>take to sell? What is the median selling price? Buyers want the </li></ul><ul><li>best deal out there. </li></ul><ul><li>The 2011 Profile found that more buyers are opting against dual agency, </li></ul><ul><li>where the agent represents both the buyer and seller. This could signal that </li></ul><ul><li>today's buyers are very cautious about getting into the market. While a dual </li></ul><ul><li>agent isn't supposed to harbor any bias, buyers now want to be extra sure </li></ul><ul><li>they are getting the best deal possible. In fact, &quot;60 percent of recent buyers </li></ul><ul><li>had an oral or written arrangement with the real estate agent or broker so </li></ul><ul><li>that the buyer's agent only represented the buyer and not the seller.” </li></ul><ul><li>If you are considering entering buying a home this year, be sure to strongly </li></ul><ul><li>consider using a real estate agent. They could be your biggest ally. </li></ul><ul><li>Published: January 17, 2012 </li></ul><ul><li>Realty Times </li></ul>Relying On An Agent by Carla Hill
