Home ownership is something that most people desire. When it is your time to buy a home, having an agent is a must. It is also vital in selling your home when you are ready. Let me tell you why.
The most important part of buying or selling a home is figuring out a price, and if it is fair. A real estate agent has access to all of the homes around you, which are called comparables. Your agent will research and complete a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) to show you what is either on the market, recently sold, expired, and how they compare to the home you are buying or selling.
If you are selling your home, an agent knows how to market your home. Agents have access to many different people in the industry, and maybe an agent in his or her office has a buyer looking for a home just like yours! Those connections can increase your chances of selling your home fast. An agent will also hold an open house for you, so you don’t have to. As easy as an open house sounds, it is a lot of work!
With a home purchase comes paperwork, and a lot of it! Do you know what it all means? Your agent will sit down with you and go over everything so you don’t have to figure it out on your own. With buying or selling, you want to make sure you know what you are signing, and if the documents are correct.
Buying and selling a home can be a very stressful adventure, so having an agent on your side can make it more enjoyable for all parties involved. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, give me a call! Visit my website or call me direct Ken Couture, 702-610-6247.
