What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Real Estate Agent To Help Represent You In Your Home Buying Process

One of the many questions we hear all the time from prospective home-buyers here on Lake Tahoe in Incline Village is, “What are the benefits of having a real estate agent represent us”. Oftentimes, home-buyers feel as though they have a good grasp on the real estate market and think that by not hiring a real estate agent, they can end up saving some money on the purchase price of their home. However, having a real estate agent can end up helping you find the right property and negotiate a fair purchase price.

An experienced real estate agent will be able to help you navigate the complex real estate market; from narrowing down the list of available properties to helping schedule any showings, a real estate agent will be able to help guide you through the buying process.

Not only will an agent help write any offers on your behalf when you have found the right home for you and your family, but your agent will help negotiate a fair purchase price. Real estate agents are much more informed on the value of properties in a specific area because they are in the business of helping people buy and sell properties. Through this process, agents can pull ‘comparable’ properties to help determine a fair market value of the home you are interested in.

Home-buyers that are purchasing a property for sale that go in unguided and uninformed may make close to a full-price offer on a property that is over priced. If you aren’t working with an experienced real estate agent, you really have no way of knowing if that home is priced fairly given the market that it is in.

Be well represented in your home buying process and don’t overpay for your next home when you work with an experienced real estate agent like Alvin Steinberg. Alvin is a member of Coldwell Banker Select and can help ensure you have a positive and successful real estate experience.

    I like that you talked about how real estate agents can help you to narrow down the list of available properties that you can choose from. My children are growing up, so I’m looking to buy a bigger house. It’s important for me to get help in finding the house that will best fit our needs and wants. It will be great if I can have an access to the list of available properties on the market so I can easily choose the house that I can buy for my family. With that being said, I will make sure to consider hiring a real estate agent.

    What really got my attention was how you said that by hiring a professional real estate agent, you will be able to get a guide through the entire buying process. My sister and her husband are planning to stop renting and buy a new house. It’s important for them to be guided properly since they are new to the home buying process. They want to make sure that the process is going to be smooth for them, and they will be given the information about what they should expect at every buying stage. I will make sure to share your blog with my sister.
