The DIY (do it yourself) trend with offshoot ideas and discussions on everything from making things, to riding a plane or even further buying a house may sound like a pretty much good idea to you. However, skipping the Realtor® from the scene will more likely make the process stressful and annoying. Hiring a Realtor® has many advantages and here I list down a few reasons to hire one for you.
Buying and selling becomes easy. The DIY will suit some and not all! Going on your own will consume time as you will need some research like browsing Vancouver real estate listings and neighborhoods. While with an experienced agent, the results are faster, concrete and precise. With his contacts and eye for good properties, the agent will identify properties that suit not only your taste, but budget as well. These realtors drastically cut time and hassles to scan through limitless properties across the town.
More value for buyers. Buying home in Vancouver with the help of a Realtor®means more savings as a result of negotiation. As a buyer, you’re not expected to pay a commission to your agent as their commission value is the seller’s headache.
And sellers, on the contrary, will probably lose thousands in negotiation if they do not have an agent. The primary notion is that when you do not have any percentage as payable commission, that percentage of the total value becomes the scope for further negotiation. And buyers will certainly take advantage of this and will offer accordingly.
Help in finding the right value. A property for sale in Vancouver may estimate its value as XX, but is that the right value? To determine the best value that you can get or pay for a particular property is do a Comparable Market Analysis. Realtors can help you to decide an estimated final value of the property by performing an analysis on several parameters on the basis of the current market events.
Help in closing the deal. Realtors are trained professionals to identify and fulfill needs in a timely manner. Selling or buying a home in Vancouver or elsewhere is a long and a lengthy process which can take days or even a month. So, Realtors can help you sail smoothly through the process carrying much of the load and saving you the time to enjoy your new dream home.
Helps you avoid unnecessary hassles. Not so serious prospects can make your buying or selling experience a tricky one. To rebuff such prospects, you need a fully aware Vancouver real estate agent. A Realtor® can help you avoid irritants from the process like builders, buyers /sellers themselves or the authorities at the civic bodies.
They have an advantage. Online property listings that give away details of properties for sale and possible prospects are only a part of the major chunk. Many buyers and sellers prefer to keep the trade under the wraps and agents remain the only point of contact to reach such opportunities. A Realtor® in such cases proves better than just pages of listings with no real contact.
