When buying a new home or selling your existing home, it’s common to wonder, “do I really need a real estate agent?” While it is not a requirement to have one, realtors are incredibly valuable assets that you want in the process of buying or selling a home. Latitude 44 Realty is dedicated to your process of finding the perfect home for you. But what are the benefits to hiring a Latitude 44 Realtor?

1. Unmatched Experience and Education

Realtors have the education, the training, and the experience to back up the advice they give you. Unless you are a real estate agent yourself, chances are you don’t know all the ins and outs of buying and selling a house. It’s ok to not be the expert, and let an expert do the work for you. That way, you can be even more confident in the end result. The more education and experience your realtor has, the more knowledgeable they will be while helping you, and that is invaluable. Latitude 44’s realtors understand that a home is more than just the structure itself. It is where memories will be created, and life is lived. Our realtors are dedicated to using their unmatched experience to give you the home (and the life) you’ve always wanted.

2. They Filter Through Properties and Buyers

It’s the real estate agent’s job to sort through all the potential “spam” in the process of buying and selling homes. This can be potential buyers who aren’t serious about the home, potential homes that aren’t right for you, and anything else that may get in the way of your perfect home. Additionally, they do the difficult negotiating for you. They are experienced and trained in presenting their clients in the best light, and holding information confidential from competing interests.

3. They Do The Marketing For You

If you are selling your home, real estate agents do the marketing of your home for you. And they’re aggressive at that. This means pulling out all the stops in making your home appealing to the prospective buyers you want. This looks like staging the home to take high quality photos, giving showings, and finding the buyers that you want for your home. Latitude 44 Realty’s real estate agents know the market, and are able to market your home in the best possible way to get it sold at the right price, to the right people.

4. They Know About Neighborhoods and Towns

Realtors are excellent resources for information about different towns and neighborhoods. They are able to find and compare prices from different locations and simply present you with the facts. They also know about the demographics, schools, crime, and other information about certain neighborhoods and towns that is ultimately valuable to you. With Latitude 44 Realty, there’s no guessing whether or not a neighborhood or town is right for you. Our real estate agents do the work for you to discover the right neighborhood or town for you.

5. They Are Housing Market Experts

The housing market can be confusing. Not to mention it’s constantly changing. Leave the work to your realtor to figure out when the best time is for you to buy or sell a home. Real estate agents will guide clients, show them the facts about the housing market, and allow clients to make decisions for themselves. After that, based on the decisions made, and the conditions discussed, they will come up with a negotiation strategy, and handle all of the paperwork for you.

At Latitude 44 Realty, our real estate experts take each and every client’s home buying or selling process seriously. We understand the importance of this decision, and are passionate about giving our clients as many resources and as much guidance as we can to lead them to the home of their dreams.
