Do you know buyers who do not have a real estate professional working for them? They feel they have all the information they need from the internet to make a decision on their next home, even when this is their first purchase?
This is when the old saying, “what you don’t know can hurt you!” Skipping even one of the 50 step process could cost you thousands of dollars. What happens when you don’t have a home inspection and you miss an aging roof? The first rain proves to be the beginning of the “money pit” experience with your real estate purchase. What could be next? Once you have lost confidence in your property it is hard to get a good nights sleep from then on till you sell it.
In another market with more supply and less demand a buyer may be able to secure a home without a professional but why take that chance when a representative is paid for by the seller and works free of charge for you? One more time – you don’t know what you don’t know. Having someone who goes through this process once a month is an advantage. Is this an advantage you or someone you know needs?
