3 Reasons to Hire an Experienced Realtor

Before you hire a friend of the family to help you buy or sell your home, you should give this some thought….

*A savvy REALTOR® can properly advise on market value.  As a seller, over pricing will cause you to sit on the market longer than anticipated, and miss potential buyers who will move on to another home.

*Negotiation Skills are key!  Many times getting a deal done is a result of knowing what to say, when to say and how to say it.  Your REALTOR® should be well versed and skilled when acting as the buffer between you and your buyer, in addition to providing you with a fiduciary relationship and confidentiality.

*Avoid the pitfalls!  And there are many…every deal provides a new set of challenges and learning experiences. Closing more deals results in an educated agent who can help you maneuver through to settlement.
