  • 4 Reasons Why You Need To Hire A Realtor® To Buy Or Sell Your Home

If you are getting ready to buy or sell a house in Calgary, you are probably weighing the option to either hire a real estate agent or to go about the buying and selling process on your own. Buyers and sellers are on different teams but share the same goal—a sale. However, what one is trying to achieve is drastically different from what the other is. On one side, the buyer is looking to get a steal on the property. On the other side, the seller is looking to make top dollar. Both parties can immensely benefit from using a real estate agent, even if their end goals are different from one another.

4 Reasons You Should Hire A Realtor®

Even though the Internet has amazing resources and information about selling and buying a home, it still cannot replace a professional. It is a fulfilling relationship for both you and your real estate agent, and they will be able to offer you valuable advice and knowledge regarding the housing market.

Here are a few reasons why you should hire a Realtor® for buying or selling a home:

They Have Incredible Negotiating Skills

It is your Realtors® job to get you the best possible price for your home or to see that you receive the best deal on the property you want to buy. Real estate agents have extensive experience with negotiating, and they know what is worth negotiating over and what would just be a waste of effort and money. They also have no emotional connection to the buying or selling process, which allows them to make sober decisions at all times.

Privacy And Confidentiality

Real estate agents have what is known as a fiduciary responsibility to their clients. This means that they are legally obligated to put their clients’ best interests first. This duty also imparts a very high standard of confidentiality. A buyer will be way less likely to hand over detailed financial information to a private seller as they are under no legal obligation to keep your information confidential.

They Know What To Look For

Buyers will usually have a firm idea of what they want in their new home. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, layout, and more, are the basic things that a buyer will look for in a property. Your agent, however, will be alert for issues that may not cross your mind, such as the furnace, roofing, and insect problems. An agent will recognize the telltale signs of these problems and will know how to best approach them.

As a seller, you will only have a rough idea of what your house will be worth. You could end up putting the property on the market for way too much and never receive offers, or you could price it too low and sign a poor deal. Agents will be able to do a comparative market analysis to ensure your home is optimally priced all the while attracting buyers.

Paperwork, Paperwork, Paperwork

Along with the sale and purchase of a home comes a lot of paperwork. Some of these documents include:

  • Bill of sale
  • Deed
  • Affidavit of title
  • Seller's affidavit 
  • Transfer tax declarations
  • Repairs
  • Written offer

All this paperwork comes with complicated terms and conditions that only your real estate agent will understand. Your real estate agent will also keep this paperwork organized and secure so you do not have to worry about misplacing them.

One of the best parts about working with a real estate agent for either buying or selling is that they have amazing connections. They will know of other buyers that may be interested in purchasing your property, which can help the sale move along much faster. As a seller, they will be able to connect you with a stager, photographer, or even a last-minute handyman. These relationships can help both buyers and sellers avoid added costs while getting the sale or purchase completed much more efficiently.

Will a real estate agent determine what price I should sell my home for?

Yes, your real estate agent will do a comparative analysis to determine the optimal selling point for your home. They will look at previously sold homes in your area and compare their sales to the price point of your home amongst many other factors.

Is a real estate agent obligated to tell me every offer made on my home?

Legally, your real estate agent will have to let you know every single offer that is made on your home. This ensures that your real estate agent is honest and open with you and that you can make a decision to accept or reject an offer.

What is a foreclosure property?

A foreclosure is the process of a lender (the bank) repossessing a home from a homeowner when they fail to make their mortgage payments.
