Whether you’re a home seller or a buyer, I highly recommend you to work with a Real Estate Professional in your local area. Being a Real Estate Professional myself, I can firmly state that there are numerous perks of having an expert by your side. And that’s exactly what I will highlight in today’s post. So, if you still haven’t made your mind regarding working with a real estate expert, read this post before you start searching for or selling a property on your own.
Let’s get started, shall we?
The Seller’s Perspective
- In-depth Knowledge of the Local Market
When it comes to home selling, it’s best to hire a Real Estate Professional for assistance because a local expert has profound knowledge about the market and its conditions. A local expert has a sound understanding and knowledge of the past, present and future market trends. And you know what that means? Well, they can provide you with quality guidance on whether it is a buyer’s market or a seller’s market. This information is vital as it can help you determine your selling strategy accordingly.
- Price Guidance
Pricing homes for sale is a difficult task. Therefore, it only makes sense to work with a real estate expert. However, many real estate agents give into the desires of their clients (home sellers) and say whatever would make them happy in order to attract business. Misrepresenting a home’s actual value can never get a fast sale and the property will remain on the market for years. Unlike them, I don’t do that because I think that is wrong.
I set a price for each home using CMA (comparable market analysis) which helps me to stronger understand the market and to be able to provide my clients with the best suggestions on their listing price. I always strive to help my clients to get their property sold as close as possible or over their desire price but at the same time to help them with a secure and fast sale.
- Excellent Advertising Services
Another great benefit of hiring an experienced and trusted real estate agent is that they’ll help you promote your home in the best possible way. Massive exposure is the key. This will make sure that your home is visible to a maximum number of buyers searching for properties across different mediums and platforms.
For example, I provide my clients with an effective marketing plan. I advertise listings with photographs, map, neighbourhood, amenities, and a virtual tour video, which results in vast exposure and quick sales. I also make sure to set up a personalised and custom website for the client’s home and get their home listed on all trusted real estate platforms for maximum exposure.
I utilize my quality advertising services to spread the word about your home and gain as many potential home buyers as possible.
- Quality Advice on Home Staging
Preparing a home for sale can be challenging, especially for first-time sellers who are often not aware of how to declutter and stage their homes to impress buyers. Not all but some real estate representatives like me provide home sellers with quality staging advice and assistance.
I have a robust network of industry professionals like home stagers, professional photographers, interior designers, cleaners and other professionals who can assist you in preparing your home for sale. With my team, I can provide you with quality guidance on decluttering, cleaning and staging your home so that your home looks spacious and appealing; and more importantly, buyers can visualize themselves living in your home. And let me tell you that if a buyer can imagine themselves living comfortably and safely in your home, the chances are that they are likely to buy it.
I can provide you with landscaping suggestions, upgrades and repair jobs and recommendations on how to rearrange your interior décor in order to improve your home’s visual appeal and make it more attractive to your prospects.
From the Buyer’s Perspective
- Help You Make an Informed Purchase Decision
An experienced and knowledgeable local real estate agent can provide you with answers to all the crucial questions like:
- Which neighbourhood is near good schools?
- Which communities have seen the greatest increase in value over time?
- What is the crime and demographic rate?
All this information will provide you with a proper understanding of the area where you’re planning to buy a home. Furthermore, this information is needed to make an informed purchase decision, which could take months to collect if you decided to buy a home on your own.
- Narrow Down Choices
With so many properties in the area for sale, sifting through all the options can be a time-consuming and frustrating task altogether. However, with a real estate agent by your side, you can spare yourself this hassle as they will shortlist properties for you, based on your budget and wish list, thereby making the buying process faster.
- Help You Get Pre-Approval
Anyone can say that they are interested in buying a home, but the truth of the matter is that not everyone can get or is ready for a new home search. For home buying in Canada, pre-approval is important. Obtaining pre-approval ensures to the home seller that the potential buyer is qualified and has the purchasing power to buy the property.
However, it is easier said than done unless you work with a Real Estate Professional like me. I make sure that before you start viewing properties, you have your first steps taken care of, such as getting your pre-approval or a commitment letter from your financial institute and that you are pre-qualified for the right amount.
- Handle Paperwork
- Nowadays, a typical real estate purchase agreement can exceed ten pages. Home buying process is no less than a paper labyrinth. With so much paperwork to complete and fulfill, it can get the best of you unless you work with a seasoned Real Estate Professional. Being an experienced Real Estate Professional, I can help you handle large volumes of paperwork involved in the home buying process. I will walk you through the entire process smoothly, ensuring that all the paperwork and requirements are complete and provided to the seller in a timely manner. Simply stated, with me, you can sit back while I take care of all the paperwork filing on your behalf. Get You the Best Deal through Negotiation
Every buyer wants to close the best deal. But that’s not easy if you lack negotiation skills. By working with a professional, you can be confident that they’ll help you get the best deal possible. And that is what I am best at.
I don’t work as a messenger delivering buyers’ offers to sellers. By leveraging on my unmatched negotiation skills, I present my client’s case in the best light and can help you close a deal that is within your budget.
So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with me to discuss your home buying and selling needs. Rest assured, I will work in your best interest to help you get the best deal in the fastest time to your complete satisfaction.
