Planning on buying a home in Charlotte soon?

Hiring the right real estate agent can be one of the best decisions you make. Here are 3 reasons why you should hire a real estate agent next time you buy a home in the Charlotte area.

Contracts

Have you gone through a real estate contract before? They can be confusing even for those who have bought and sold dozens of homes in their life. They are constantly changing too. Every year they get updated as new scenarios pop up and the paperwork is changed to protect against the latest scenarios. Real Estate Agents are required to stay up to date on the latest paperwork.

Most good agents will do in one year more contract than you’ll do your entire life. If you’re looking to buy a home in Charlotte than you should hire someone to make sure you’re protected.


Negotiation


How are your negotiation skills? Do you have a job where you do it regularly? Negotiations can be stressful and many leave favourable terms and thousands of dollars on the table. It’s important to hire people who negotiate all the time. Being actively involved in the real estate market a good real estate agent will know what you can realistically expect to achieve.

If you’re not familiar with the market you may end up offering too little and offending the seller. This can leave you out of future negotiations. Some sellers will actually leave you out of future negotiating rounds. You may also end up paying thousands more than you should. Make sure whoever represents you in the purchase of your next home is active in Charlotte and knows what is realistic in every negotiation.


Access


When you hire a real estate agent to buy a home you become an insider. While homes on the market are publicly available in online search portals like Zillow, that information isn’t always up to date. When a home is on Zillow, in a sellers market like Charlotte, it may already be too late. Homes are selling fast. By hiring a real estate agent you can make sure you can be one of the first people in every home when it hits the market. On top of that you can also get access to homes that aren’t even on the market yet.

Aside from homes you can also get access to their network. If you need a loan, a handyman, home inspection, etc… then a real estate agent can give you the contacts for people who can get the job done. 

Real Estate Agents wear many hats and there are way more reasons to hire agents such as their education, local knowledge, and more but their experience with paperwork, negotiating skills, and access on the market are all great reasons to hire a real estate agent.
