“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius, Chinese philosopher
Are you wondering how this quote relates to real estate? It’s really very simple…
Most of us do tend to over complicate our lives, so if you are considering buying or selling a home, your experience will be a lot less complicated and a lot less stressful when you use an experienced realtor to help guide you through the process.
If you plan on selling your home and want to do it by yourself, you need to make sure you are following all the guidelines of the state you are living in, find a title company or attorney to close with, deal directly with the buyers or their experienced realtor, all of which will cost hours of your time. An experienced, licensed real estate agent already knows and adheres to the guidelines, will help you price your home to sell, will market your home, will help bring a qualified buyer, will recommend a trusted title company, will help guide you through any unexpected hurdles, and will keep on top of deadlines. Letting a real estate agent work for you will simplify the many facets of the home selling process, so you can focus on the other aspects of your life.
If you plan on purchasing a home, a real estate agent will help you research the property you are interested in, will help you with the paperwork when you make an offer, will keep on top of deadlines, will help guide you through any unexpected hurdles, and will be able to recommend a lender if needed. All this at no charge to you. Letting a realtor lessen the complications of the home buying process for you helps you to enjoy the experience more and allows you to focus on the rest of your life.
Keep it simple…work with an experienced, licensed real estate agent whether you are buying or selling a home.
