3 Reasons To Have Your Own Real Estate Agent
Great advice for first-time buyers in Daphne and Spanish Fort Alabama!
Are you wanting to buy a house but feel overwhelmed because of your lack of knowledge? Or maybe you are busy and don't have the time to devote to "house hunting"?
Then consider hiring a professional to work for you! Here's 3 reasons why you should.
You Can Hire A Real Estate Agent For No Cost To You!
Probably the best reason to hire your own real estate agent is because you can do so without any cost to you! Unless you have a specific agreement otherwise, your agent will be paid by the seller once you buy a house. That means NO COST to you!
You might wonder if that will just drive up the cost of the sale. The fact is that when a house sells there is a commission paid by the seller. That commission is negotiated AT THE TIME THE HOUSE IS LISTED.
The commission, by law, has to be paid once the house sales. The seller will pay the same amount whether there is one agent or two agents involved in the sale. The agents will split the commission.
The Real Estate Agent Has Information And Knowledge You Don't
Remember, real estate agents are like any other professional. Just like electricians know the most recent codes about wiring houses, real estate agents know the local inventory of houses on the market, the latest on mortgages and the scoop on neighborhoods.
It is their day to day business. They are required by law to take continuing education classes on the latest in real estate. Plus, they receive up-to-date information on the market DAILY! They have information that is not available online.
Real Estate Agents Can Look When You Can't
Looking at houses is an agent's job. This is what they are doing during the week (and weekends) while you are at work. Even when they are showing a house to another buyer they are thinking, "would this house work for one of my other clients?"
Plus, they are in constant contact with other agents who are listing and showing houses. It is a giant network of real estate experts. It is their job to know what houses are available and what new house come available.
