Emotion ,Buying a home often turns to an emotional experience. It’s more than just 4 walls and heat. For most it will be the largest purchase they will ever make. Having a concerned, but objective 3rd party helps you stay focused on important financial issues.
Marketing Power, A Realtor will get you home on all the largest and most popular web sites.They will also expose your home to the multiple listing service, this will show your home to lots of other Realtors. They may even sell your home just talking to friends on a trip to the store.
Best Home, sometimes the home you’re looking for may not be on the market. It could be a pocket listing. If you let your Realtor know what your looking for when that property comes up they can make sure you get a shot at it.
Experience, There are many negotiating factors, here are a few. Price, financing, terms, possession date, repairs furnishings. It should also include time to complete inspections, a termite and most likely a whole home inspection. Country homes might need a septic or well inspection.
