Your property will likely be the greatest financial investment you’ll ever make. With the help of a trained real estate agent, it can also be your wisest. Give yourself every opportunity to come out on top by working with a professional.
Get All the Listings
New properties for sale hit the real estate market daily, and not all of them are listed on MLS. Your representative will be in regular contact with sellers and other real estate agents to ensure you see all the newest listings right away, whether or not they’re made public. Often, buyers can put in offers with little or no competition and walk away with an impressive deal on the property of their choice. Your agent will save you valuable time by making sure you only see properties that meet your needs and investment preferences.
As you compare the best deals, your agent will provide you with important information about the property, its neighbourhood, zoning issues, utilities, and nearby plans for development.
Professionals on Your Side
Many real estate transactions include an extensive negotiating process. Your agent will represent you and get you the best deal possible. Expect him/her to attend property inspections (including well testing and septic inspections), make sure any and all agreed-upon repair work is carried out, and to handle the paperwork related to the sale. An agent can also help set up the financing for your investment, and work directly with a broker to provide you with a seamless service package.
Get the Best Deal
Working with a dedicated agent on your next property purchase will save you time and add professional assurance to every step of the process. With the guarantee of a solid investment, the decision could also make you more wealthy when it’s time to sell.
