Have you found yourself asking, “Do I really need a real estate agent” when thinking about buying/selling your home? With so many online tools, it is easy to consider going about the process on your own, without a real estate agent, but is it the wisest decision to make? Regardless to all the marketing and advertising networks available, you may want to consider hiring a real estate agent.
Agents have experience and intimate knowledge about real estate, why not let them use their expertise to your advantage? Real estate agents are ready to serve you, use their skills and know how to negotiate for your best interest, handle the volumes of paperwork during the whole process, and answer questions after closing to make sure nothing was forgotten in the chaos.
