Why You Can’t Afford NOT To Use A REALTOR®

Why us a REALTOR®?
When a REALTOR® to important.

Have you ever wondered, “is hiring a Realtor really necessary?” The answer to this important question is absolutely YES! In today’s strictly regulated market, there are several ways an experienced Realtor can be invaluable to you during the home buying or selling process.

Market Conditions

There is so much information out there when it comes to housing and market conditions can change quickly. A Realtor can help you weed out what is truth and fiction, and help you understand current market conditions including data on inventory and comparable sales prices.

Negotiations

Negotiating the purchase of a property can be stressful. A licensed Realtor will act as your middleman, managing expectations of the parties on either side of the deal, ensuring a smoother transaction for you.

Pricing

A Realtor understands the value of real estate in different markets, conditions, and types. The improper pricing of your property can leave your listing dead in the water, costing you much more in the long run.

Paperwork

There is a mountain of paperwork for real estate transactions. Missing a disclosure or piece of necessary paperwork could spell disaster if you are navigating a buy or sale without a Realtor. A Realtor is experienced and aware of all of the various regulations you may face, and can ensure nothing is overlooked when it comes time to close the sale.

Renting vs. Owning

Rent vs. Own
Renting vs Owning

The decision to rent or buy a home depends on a number of factors. The speed at which home prices and rents rise and the length of time you anticipate remaining in your home or rental are key considerations. Costs are also something to strongly consider when making the decision to rent or buy. Read about the four types of costs you should take into consideration and what they mean.

Purchase costs

When buying a home, these costs are the costs you incur when closing. These include the down payment and closing costs, which can go toward the principle balance you owe on your home. When renting, these costs can be the deposit and/or broker’s fees, which you may or may not ever see again.

Yearly costs

As a homeowner, these include mortgage payments, association fees, renovations, maintenance, taxes and insurance. For a renter, these include rent and insurance. Although the yearly costs of homeownership can be substantially higher, these costs could be considered an investment, as the money you put in to your home could potentially be returned to you, or even grow, upon a sale.

Lost opportunity costs

For the homeowner, these are tracked for the yearly costs and the initial purchase costs. The latter can give the homeowner insight into how much could have been made had the down payment been invested instead of used towards the purchase of the home.

Selling costs

For the homeowner, these costs are incurred once the closing process begins. This includes fees and brokers’ commissions, as well as the remaining principal balance still owed. For the renter, these do not come into play, although there is no guarantee that all earnest deposit money will be returned.
