Let us look at this from two different angles!
YOU ARE BUYING NEW CONSTRUCTION
In this case, you will definitely want a realtor representing you. There is no additional cost to having one when buying new construction! The price that you are going to pay for a given new home will be the same whether you have a realtor or not. The advantage of having a realtor representing you is that they will look out for your interests. The sales rep who works for the builder is only there to protect the builder and their interests. Your realtor will be there to help you review the contract, make sure the inspection gets done correctly, coordinate the appraisal, and handle a lot of other details. Above all, they will ensure that you are not getting taken advantage of and get everything that you deserve for the money you are spending on your new home.
YOU WANT TO BUY A RESALE HOME
In this case, a realtor is not required, but having one helps a lot. Once again, there is no additional cost to having a realtor represent you when buying a resale home. The seller pays the buyer’s agent, so the realtor cost does not come out of your pocket. Because of this and other factors, we believe it is wise to have a realtor represent you. The realtor will help you understand your needs. They will be able to suggest neighborhoods that are going to be the best fit for you. If you have a certain budget, they can find neighborhoods that meet your needs and fit your budget. In addition, they will coordinate all the details and paperwork throughout the process. As you can imagine, selling a home is pretty paperwork intensive, so having an expert handle this component is a huge advantage.
Selling your house is a major decision, selling your house on your own is a lot of responsibility. It’s time-consuming and requires an immense amount of effort and expertise. Before you decide to sell your house yourself, let’s discuss your options so we can make sure you get the most out of the sale.
