Can you buy or sell a home in Lewis County without losing thousands to your bottom line? We all want that right, but you need to do a few things. Be sure you hire a real estate agent when looking to buy or sell your home.
Hi, I’m Eren Millam with Premiere Property Group, LLC.
That’s an awesome question and with all this talk about working with companies to buy or sell a home without an experience realtor or these discount brokers who will sell your home for next to nothing because they lack the experience to be able to actually compete with agents and brokers who truly know how to out perform them in experience, negotiation, and sales. It makes me crazy!
Now I don’t presume to be a doctor, but buying or selling a home is most likely one of your largest assets right next to your body, and you wouldn’t operate on yourself, would you? Yep, me neither! And when hiring a doctor, wouldn’t you want to hire a doctor that specializes in whatever body part you have trouble with. For example, if you had a hip problem, you wouldn’t go to a foot doctor – you’d go to a doctor who specialized in hips, so do the same with your real estate and mortgage professionals. Hire one with a lot of experience. It truly can make the difference between you losing out on a lot of money and potential interest when selling. If you hire an inexperienced real estate professional, who has no clue about marketing strategy to capitalize on your investment or a lender who isn’t experienced enough to actually know what programs are available for you to capitalize on, well that stinks for you. So hire someone experienced.
Lastly, what about negotiations? What if you were being sued? Would you want to hire the vest best attorney to keep you out of jail or to keep more money in your pocket in case you had to pay out? Well of course you would! You want to hire a good attorney who can negotiate on your behalf, can mean the difference between you ending up in the slammer or possibly being bankrupt. Well your home is no different. Remember, it’s most likely your largest investment, so be careful not to hire an agent who’s only card that they can pull out is to reduce their commission because they don’t have the negotiations and experience. And here’s a secret! Hey, if they can’t negotiate on their behalf, that means they can’t negotiate on your behalf either, and it could end up costing you thousands and thousands of dollars.
So take my advice. Being a specialist, having lots of experience, and knowing how to negotiate is the right choice when purchasing or selling your largest investment.
