So… why should you work with an agent in 2022?
Many are sceptical to start working with agents. In this blog post, I’ll go through the reasons why you SHOULD work with an agent.
Even though you can directly contact listing agents and go through the transactions yourself, should you?
Purchasing property can sometimes be stressful, primarily if you deal with nasty sellers and their agents. However, being represented by an agent, you know that you have someone in your corner who will fight for your interest.
The agent can also help search for relevant listings and arrange for appointments, allowing you to use your time more wisely.
Furthermore, if you buy a private property, you don’t have to pay commission to your agent, so why not?
Detailed Analysis with Data
If you have worked with an agent or met with one, chances are you’ve been presented with charts and numbers as they go through their sharing about the property market.
But did you know that you can use the data shared to your advantage?
An agent can research past trends of similar types of transaction prices around the area and analyse how your purchase would fare against the current market.
This means that they can also help identify undervalued purchases and potential units that can give you the most discounts.
In an ideal situation, your property transaction will take place smoothly, but more often than not, some compromise or negotiation is required.
This is where having an agent representation can work in your favour. Trying to strike a deal while going about your busy workday will not only stress you out but can cause you to overlook the finer details.
An agent can help take all the stress off of you and ensure that all proper documentation is done in order to focus on other important things.
With these reasons for working with an agent, will you take that first step today?
