1. The right agent can make all the difference.

They know the best schools, the best areas, and where the pockets of growth are. They understand where property taxes are higher or lower and can listen to a buyer’s needs and give their best advice.

2. Agents know pricing.

Real estate agents do not set the prices, but they do guide sellers in establising their list price. When working for a buyer, Realtors provide market information about the competing homes available as well as share sale information for the recently sold comparable homes.  They can also help their buyer client formulate a "right price offer" based on a variety of information including how long a house has been on the market.

3. Agents love the processes.

From the massive piles of paperwork needed to buy a home to a deep understanding of all the disclosure forms and laws, real estate agents know their Business.

4. Agents have great teams around them.

Any experienced, respected real estate agent in will have service partners such as lawyers that they trust completely, lenders that they know will respect and assist their buyers in every way, and a team of skilled contractors and service providers on whom they rely. A good agent will have a solution to any problem that may stand in the way of their buyer’s home.

5. Agents make it easy on their buyers.

From paperwork to coordinating the showings, a real estate agent can streamline the home-buying process. They will comb the listings to find houses worth seeing and set up appointments around their buyer’s schedule. When it comes to negotiating the deal, a real estate agent will know exactly how to present your offer, as well as professionally close the deal.

6.  Agents manage your side of the the sale from contract to closing.

An experienced agent or team will guide you every step of the way making sure you stay on track with your contractual obligations and close on time.
