FSBO vs. Realestate Agent

When you are considering to sell your property or maybe you are looking to purchase a home the first item on your list to check off is if you are going to enlist a real-estate agent.  Here are a few secrets as to why choosing a real estate agent is in your best interests.

It's common knowledge that REALTORS® are professionally trained to have in-depth neighborhood knowledge and to market homes.

However, these often overlooked REALTOR® skills give you an added edge when you look to buy or sell a home:

They see all the listings - active, solds, expireds, and exclusives
REALTORS® spend every day with their finger on the pulse of what is happening. They understand why some houses sell quickly and why others don't sell at all. They see new listings before they go live, giving their searching and selling clients an advantage in the market.

They keep very busy and this is great for you
REALTORS® go through hundreds of homes and speak to a network of other agents. Just as a doctor is immersed in their medical specialty and his or her skills every day, REALTORS® provide real estate expertise to their clients.

They are highly trained negotiators
REALTORS® are trained and experienced in negotiation, and their instinct to say the right things at the right time can make your transaction a great success. When it comes to getting a fair price and a good deal, you want a professional representing your interests at the table.

They know the legal process
REALTORS® know the intricacies of home selling and buying regulations, contract law, legal zoning, and neighbourhood knowledge, and ensure clients understand and complete all requirements in due time. No one wants to lose a transaction because a deadline passed or they missed a checkbox.
