Buying Without a Realtor? Think Twice!
Filed under Real Estate Agents on Oct 23,2019 |
Home buyers often ask why they need the help of a Realtor. Typically, the hesitation is based on the notion that buyers will be hit with hefty fees for what may seem like a simple process. The fact is that sellers pay the Realtor’s commission – not the buyer. And, the search and purchase process can be anything but simple.
Sarah Li Cain, writing for Bankrate.com, points out that a Realtor can save you time by helping you find homes that fit your budget, lifestyle and location preferences. When you do find that seemingly perfect home, a Realtor can help you evaluate the asking price, negotiate an offer, specify any contingencies, review seller disclosures, manage a home inspection and navigate the legalities of the purchase process.
