Realtors Can Leverage Local Knowledge to Help You
Realtors usually have deep roots in the areas they specialize in. Apart from knowing the area inside out, they also have close relationships with vendors and lenders in the local community. This especially comes in handy when you’re looking to do last-minute upgrades or repairs to increase the selling price of your house.
They also use their knowledge of the locality to give you an accurate idea of the home’s worth. If you’re planning on selling your Saskatoon property, reach out to Jeff and his team for a no obligations, complimentary home analysis.
They Offer an Objective Perspective
As the homeowner, you may not always notice the flaws in your house—either because you’re used to them or you don’t view them as flaws at all. But, realtors know exactly what to look out for to increase your home’s market appeal. They will be able to point out changes you need to make and repairs that need to be done to attract buyers.
Real estate agents can also prevent you from making emotionally charged mistakes like overpricing your home or deciding to sell it for a lower price when you’re working on a deadline. They can help you identify which buyer feedback is worth acting upon after you’ve put your house on the market to improve its chances of selling.
They Can Negotiate the Best Price and Offer
Professional real estate agents have probably negotiated several hundred home purchases. They know all the tricks in the books, how to get you the best price, and how to identify a disingenuous buyer.
Moreover, agents will also be more familiar with the pulse of the local market and know what terms are worth negotiating for and where you should compromise. They can leverage this knowledge to help you negotiate terms that work most in your favour.
Agents also understand the local customs regarding the sale of a home, such as whether the buyer or seller typically pays fees such as transfer taxes and closing costs.
Great Realtors Are Also Great Marketers
The most important thing you need to look at when choosing a realtor is their marketing approach. Find out how they plan on targeting local homebuyers as well as those from other cities looking to move to your area.
