If you’re considering buying or selling a home in the Phoenix Metro area, a surrounding suburb or neighborhood, you may be wondering, Why should I hire a Licensed REALTOR/Real Estate Agent?
For starters, check out the Critical Points List of timelines and “things to do” which occur during a Real Estate transaction. And keep in mind, this list kicks in only AFTER you are in a fully executed Purchase Contract with a Buyer or Seller. You can view and download this list, if you’d like.
Don’t forget about having a licensed professional to make sure you’re not paying too much for a home you’re buying. And if you’re selling your home, you want to make sure it’s NOT for too little money! I tell all of my clients, “I don’t like laving money on the table and I’m guessing you don’t either!” I don’t think you’d argue with me on that one. I have never, ever had one single person disagree with me on that statement and I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that you’d agree with me.
Let’s also not forget about ALL the areas during a real estate transaction that are NEGOTIABLE!
Plus, buying or selling a home usually requires dozens of forms, reports, disclosures, and other technical documents. Realtors have the expertise to help you prepare a killer deal while avoiding delays or costly mistakes that can seriously mess you up.
And don’t forget, it costs the buyer NOTHING to hire a licensed real estate agent! Yes, seller’s have to pay to sell, but buyers do not.
If you decide to buy or sell a home, the offer to purchase contract is there to protect you and ensure that you are able to back out of the deal if certain conditions aren’t met. For example, if you plan to buy a home with a mortgage but you fail to make financing one of the conditions of the sale, and you aren’t approved for the mortgage, you can lose your deposit on the home and could even be sued by the seller for failing to fulfill your end of the contract.
An experienced real estate agent deals with the same contracts and conditions on a regular basis, and is familiar with which conditions should be used, when they can safely be removed and how to use the contract to protect you, whether you’re buying or selling your home.
