Why should I hire a real estate pro to buy or sell a house? If you’ve ever asked that question, the answer is: Guidance. You need a real estate pro to guide you, no matter where you land on the home buying or selling spectrum. And guidance is only one of the reasons why using an agent will matter to you. Whether you’re a homebuyer or seller, learn these ABCs on the importance of hiring a real estate pro.

Access

Access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is critical to selling a home and real estate pros have it. The MLS is the most up-to-date database of all homes for sale. A listing on the MLS is also important because every other real estate pro in the area will have access to info about your home. The MLS maximizes your reach to a greater pool of potential buyers.

Access to MLS also matters if you’re in the market to buy a home. You know what you want and a real estate pro can search MLS for available homes that match your requirements. Want to visit a home your agent finds? Your agent will do the legwork for you, contacting the seller’s agent to make the appointment.

Bidding

Unless you negotiate for a living, it pays to have a real estate pro in your corner. Whether fielding bids for your home, or making bids on a home you want, agents know how to negotiate. And negotiation just may be the biggest part of the real estate game. With the hot housing market now, bidding wars will be a reality for both buyers and sellers. The real estate pro you hire works for you to get you the best deal.

Clients

A big reason to hire a real estate pro when you’re ready to sell your home? Clients. They have them – people they know who want to buy a home. And real estate pros will also use their local network to get the word out, helping you reach more potential buyers.

Real estate pros rely on client referrals to grow their business. So they work hard to ensure their home selling or buying clients are satisfied with their sale. Because the pros know each successful transaction can lead to repeat business. more…
