FACEBOOK.COM/WESTNEWSMAGAZINE WESTNEWSMAGAZINE.COM April 11, 2018 WEST NEWSMAGAZINE I PRIME REAL ESTATE I 53 real estate Five reasons real estate agents are a seller’s friend In the age of the internet, the notion of using a real estate agent to sell a home might seem strange. But the availability of information online can’t fully replace the expertise and experience of real estate agents. According a report by the National Association of REALTORS ® from March 2018, about 87 percent of buyers purchased a home through a real estate agent or broker, and about 89 percent of those buyers would use an agent again or recommend their agent to others. Here are some reasons why: Selling is a full-time job Real estate agents take on the burden of things like home staging, purchase agreements and negotiation so they are off the seller’s plate. Using an agent allows sellers to continue to work, take care of family members and pack without being run ragged. Agents are a sword and shield It’s a real estate agent’s job to serve as a liaison between the home seller and potential buyers. Agents can help run and supervise property showings and visits. Agents also take the responsibility of filtering phone calls and spam from potential buyers, taking out unserious buyers [“lookie loos”] and making sure only serious buyers interact with the seller. They can filter information and translate lingo Selling a home has its own lingo. Terms like 4B/2B, CMA, FSBO and MLS are just a handful of acronyms and terms used in official documents and listings by professional agents. In addition to having an inside knowledge on market and neighborhood trends, agents also have knowledge from previous experience It’s the agents’ job to look at market supply and demand, and to supply buyers and sellers with specialized information pertaining only to the sale of hand. Networking is part of the job With experience comes ample networking opportunities that many normal buyers and sellers won’t possess. Real estate agents also are tasked with legal liability that prevents them from imposing a bias and recommending specific companies and vendors. Instead, agents can provide a list of references from previous networking experience, without putting additional pressure on buyers or sellers. Real estate agents also often work with mortgage brokers, attorneys, interior designers and more on a regular basis. They understand the art of negotiation Bullish negotiation techniques are mandatory to make sure a seller receives acceptable home offers and doesn’t suffer from accepted sub-par offers due to a lack of knowledge or negotiation skills. Agents are educated professionals who can navigate items like all-cash offers and bidding wars and, unlike sellers, can also remove some emotional aspects of the transaction to maintain a professional image even with a hands-on approach.
