Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Agent

Are you still skeptical in hiring a real estate agent? Then you should be aware of the benefits that you can derive from them.

1. Ethical consideration – Though not all real estate agents are members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), those who do join the group agree to abide by a code of ethics. That code essentially stipulates that Realtors deal with all parties of a transaction honestly.

Under the code, the Realtor is obligated to put the clients’ interests ahead of his own. He or she is also required to make full disclosure about the problems with a property and be truthful in advertising.

The code of ethics has some teeth; local boards governed by the NAR enforce the provisions. Penalties can include a $5,000 fine, a one-year suspension from the association or a three-year expulsion. How frequently this happens is unclear. Because local boards handle enforcement actions, no national statistics on penalties against Realtors are available. Source: How Stuff Works

2. Value estimation of the property – Agents are good at estimating the value of your home that you are selling and at the same time they are able to tell you whether the new house is worth your money to purchase. Typically, they will consider aspects such as the current market condition, location, demand, supply and the type of the house to determine the appropriateness of the asking price. The best advantage of using a real estate agent is that he/she can help you save thousands of dollars by negotiating with the seller using information they have such as the average sale prices, comparison with other homes in the area and how long the house has been on the market.

3. Search new house faster – Due to the reason that these Pickerington realtors can quickly access listings, they can assist their clients to easily sort out all the potential property that they are interested to buy. By the time when the client has provided the things that they want in a house, the agent will be using it to narrow down properties that have such. Then compiling all of these properties and presenting it to their client. Thus, the client doesn’t just given with several choices but also, they save loads of time if they are about to do the actual process on their own. Source: The Real Estate Experts Blog
