Are you looking to buy a house? Here are 3 reasons why it’s always best to work with a realtor when searching for your new Calgary home.

If you’re still living at home, or you’re renting an apartment, you may be considering buying a home of your own. While this is a huge investment, becoming a homeowner comes with many incredible benefits, such as:

  • It’s a reasonably safe long-term investment
  • It will allow you to build equity
  • You’ll have more privacy and greater control over your living situation
  • You can possibly enjoy a rent-free retirement, if your home is paid off
  • It provides families with greater stability

Top Benefits of Working With a Calgary Realtor When Searching For a Home

Buying a home is not only one of the largest financial decisions you’ll make, it’s also a hugely emotional one and while you may consider representing yourself when house hunting to save money, going solo may not be the best way to go - in fact, it may end up being more costly.

Here are 3 reasons why it’s best to work with a Calgary realtor when finding your new home:

1. You’ll Have Access to Important Information

When you are looking for a home together with a realtor, you will have immediate access to objective information about each property, including:

  • Utilities
  • Nearby schools and shops
  • Zoning information
  • City assessment of the property
  • MLS history or timeline to provide information on market insight
  • Comparable nearby listings of properties sold in the past to help understand the value of the home
  • A copy of the title that may provide more insight on how you should structure your offer

This will allow you to make a more informed decision when it comes to buying the best property for your needs. Choosing the right Calgary realtor can even provide you with helpful advice on what to look for when choosing your new home.

2. You’ll Understand The Home Buying Process Better

Buying a home is exciting, but it is also a very challenging experience. It requires a plethora of real estate jargon, disclosures, forms, and contracts, which can get overwhelming and become difficult to understand. Having a realtor by your side means:

  • They can answer any questions you have about the process
  • You’ll be more educated on what to expect
  • You’ll feel more empowered when buying your home, instead of feeling like you’re in the dark

By working with an expert, who fully understands the ins and outs of buying a home, you’ll be sure to avoid any costly setbacks, produce more attractive terms in offers for a better chance of acceptance, and minimize frustrations. 

3. You’ll Gain Access to Preferred Vendors and Partners

Working closely with a real estate agent means that you’ll have a direct resource for preferred vendors and partners. A realtor will have worked with many professionals who provide necessary services when you’re buying a home, such as:

  • Home inspectors
  • Home repair experts
  • Lawyers
  • Movers
  • Home insurance brokers
  • Mortgage professionals

Working with a realtor you trust means that you’ll have access to all their contacts, which makes the entire home-buying process so much smoother.

Although it is possible for you to represent yourself when buying (or selling) a home, hiring a realtor will ensure you are protected, and save you a lot of frustration and time.
