5 Benefits of Working with a Real Estate Agent

Is it time to purchase a new home?

So you’re ready to purchase a new home? How exciting! You’re creating a new and fresh start for you and your family. Regardless of whether you’re looking for something bigger or a little more modern, you may need a little help. That’s where we come in! Working with a Realtor can be really beneficial, especially one of the agents of Innovative Realty Solutions. A real estate agent can help you determine exactly what you’re looking for, in what price range and what really works for you and your family.

Here’s five benefits of working with a real estate agent.

Better Access to Homes
Real estate agents know the local market inside and out. Although most homes are listed online for buyers to explore, many sellers want to keep their sale rather private. In these cases, an agent can prove to be quite helpful. They can provide you with exclusive access to a home that otherwise, you may have missed.

An experienced real estate agent can detect issues with a potential home that otherwise, may have gone unnoticed. They thoroughly review home evaluations, while evaluating the house themselves. When a home requires some improvements, your Realtor can help negotiate. This negotiation process includes having the seller repair the issue as a part of the agreement or lowering the price to accommodate future renovations. An experienced Realtor can catch problems that may otherwise go undetected.

Save Money
A Realtor’s experience comes with the knowledge of the neighborhood. In fact, most experienced realtors can estimate the value of a home from the moment that they walk into the door. They can guide you to the listings that offer the most opportunity. In saying that, they can also avoid the listings that most likely won’t provide you with what you’re looking for, saving you both time and money.

Finding the Right Homes
Is there something unique that you were looking for in your future home? From customized pet bedrooms and backyard landscape designs, to open concept kitchens and elaborate vintage-style fireplaces, if there is something specific that you are looking for in a home, your real estate agent will know where to find it.

Avoid Closing Issues
In the final hours before the home is officially yours, you don’t want any bumps in the road. An experienced realtor can foresee any issues from miles away, helping you overcome obstacles or resolve them before it’s too late.

Some closing issues can include:

  • Document errors

  • Mortgage delays

  • Last-minute requests

  • Unclear titles

  • Issues during the final walk through

An experienced realtor can help you resolve these issues, and so much more. Especially when your real estate agent is part of a reputable, strategic, and knowledgeable team.
