Whether you are in the market to buy or sell a home, you’d be wise to use a professional, experienced real estate agent to get the job done! We’ve got plenty for you to choose from here at Keller Williams Memorial, so give us a call, and we’ll match you up with one.
To help you understand why using an agent is so beneficial, here are a few reasons to keep in mind:
- Paperwork – Paperwork for buyer and sellers seems to only be increasing. Each state has its own regulations, and the rules are constantly changing. On your own, knowing what needs to be filled out and when can be a daunting task. A Houston realtor will already know all of this and will be able to supply you with the right forms at the right time.
- Steps – Did you know that there are over 180 possible steps that occur during a real estate transaction? That’s a lot to keep track of, especially if you also have a family, a job, a life… Why stress yourself out with learning the ins and outs of the real estate process when you can just hire an experienced agent to guide you along?
- Negotiating – When buying or selling, you’ve got a lot of people to negotiate with. For instance, a seller will need to negotiate with potential buyers, who want the best deal possible, home inspection companies, appraisers and more. There are at least 11 different people you need to negotiate with during a real estate transaction, and if the other side has professional help, you’ll wish you had it.
- Home Values – it’s important to know where home values stand in the real estate market as a buyer or seller. As a seller, you want to price your home correctly from the start, to attract the right buyers and to sell quickly and smoothly. As a buyer, you want to understand current values, so you don’t overpay for a home. An agent can supply you with all of the latest information. (Online information is often outdated, with how fast the market keeps changing!)
As you can see, there is a lot to do, know and keep track of when buying or selling a home in the Houston real estate market. Without professional assistance, you could get overwhelmed quickly. You might even make a decision that you’ll later regret.
Avoid this by working with an agent from our Keller Williams Memorial real estate team! We will guide you through every step with ease and explanation, we’ll negotiate on your behalf, we’ll supply you with paperwork and information, and we’ll support you until the final day of your transaction.
