5 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Professional When Buying & Selling! | Keeping Current Matters

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it can be quite an adventurous journey; you need an experienced Real Estate Professional to lead you to your ultimate goal. In this world of instant gratification and internet searches, many sellers think that they can For Sale by Owner or FSBO.

The 5 Reasons You NEED a Real Estate Professional in your corner haven’t changed, but rather have been strengthened, due to the projections of higher mortgage interest rates & home prices as the market continues to pick up steam. 

1. What do you do with all this paperwork?

Each state has different regulations regarding the contracts required for a successful sale, and these regulations are constantly changing. A true Real Estate Professional is an expert in their market and can guide you through the stacks of paperwork necessary to make your dream a reality.

2. Ok, so you found your dream house, now what?

According to the Orlando Regional REALTOR Association, there are over 230 possible actions that need to take place during every successful real estate transaction. Don’t you want someone who has been there before, someone who knows what these actions are, to make sure that you acquire your dream? 

3. Are you a good negotiator?

So maybe you’re not convinced that you need an agent to sell your home. However, after looking at the list of parties that you need to be prepared to negotiate with, you’ll realize the value in selecting a Real Estate Professional. From the buyer (who wants the best deal possible), to the home inspection companies, to the appraiser, there are at least 11 different people that you will have to be knowledgeable with and answer to, during the process. 

4. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?

It is important for your home to be priced correctly from the start to attract the right buyers and shorten the time that it’s on the market. You need someone who is not emotionally connected to your home to give you the truth as to your home’s value. According to the National Association of REALTORS, “the typical FSBO home sold for $185,000 compared to $245,000 among agent-assisted home sales.”

Get the most out of your transaction by hiring a professional.

5. Do you know what’s really going on in the market?

There is so much information out there on the news and the internet about home sales, prices, and mortgage rates; how do you know what’s going on specifically in your area? Who do you turn to in order to competitively price your home correctly at the beginning of the selling process? How do you know what to offer on your dream home without paying too much, or offending the seller with a lowball offer?

Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, advises:

“When getting help with money, whether it’s insurance, real estate or investments, you should always look for someone with the heart of a teacher, not the heart of a salesman.”

Hiring an agent who has their finger on the pulse of the market will make your buying or selling experience an educated one. You need someone who is going to tell you the truth, not just what they think you want to hear.

Bottom Line

You wouldn’t replace the engine in your car without a trusted mechanic. Why would you make one of the most important financial decisions of your life without hiring a Real Estate Professional?

TESTIMONIALS

This was the First time I had used Jerry. He was very upfront with everything and was always willing to answer my questions. He backed me up and was always there to provide good advice through my entire experience. He was always very proffesional and ensured that my house was advertised in a very positive manner. One example of his hard work was when the issue of some extra work came up in the contract. He did all the foot work to get the quotes. The whole sale process went through without a single hiccup and all under 30 days! I couldnt be happier with the whole experience. After closing, he asked me if there was anything he could have done better. My response was, "honestly....no."  -Josh

Willing to go the extra mile for his clients. He can be reached at anytime and will get back to you quickly. Best of all, he listens to your wants and needs and does his best to make them happen for you. Best realtor experience we have has thus far! Highly recommended!   -Jeremy 

As first time home buyers, my husband and I were skeptical and nervous having to deal with a Realtor. We had one other encounter with a Realtor and it was awful, he was way to pushy, wanting to seal the deal that day. Not Jerry. When I met Jerry for the first time I was relieved! He let us take our time and move at our own pace. He was kind, not pushy an anyway and he was somebody our age. We felt comfortable and able to talk with Jerry about anything. Whenever we had questions, Jerry answered. If he didn't know he found out right away. He does the best he can no matter the situation. We both were very pleased with his dedication for the job and the time and energy spent making, IT HAPPEN! We are happy to recommend Jerry to our family and friends. Thanks again Jerry for getting my family into our new home!   -Andrea
