It also depends on the agent.
There are a few 100% "agent only" tasks that require registration with certain entities like HUD and FNMA - no direct buys are enabled.
Otherwise, distinguishing between what "an agent" can do and what I can do with my level of hyperlocal skill, subject matter expertise and fiduciary knowhow are quite different than what "a buyer" can do for themselves...
Get objective information and opinions. Real estate agents can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. Theyâ€™ll also be able to provide objective information about each property. A professional will be able to help you answer these two important questions: Will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?
Find the best property out there. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.
Benefit from their negotiating experience. There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession, and inclusion or exclusion of repairs, furnishings, or equipment. In addition, the purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.
Property marketing power. Real estate doesnâ€™t sell due to advertising alone. In fact, a large share of real estate sales comes as the result of a practitionerâ€™s contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, and family. When a property is marketed with the help of a real estate agent, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your agent will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
Real estate has its own language. If you donâ€™t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why itâ€™s important to work with a professional who is immersed in the industry and knows the real estate language.
Real estate agents have done it before. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if youâ€™ve done it before, laws and regulations change. Real estate agents, on the other hand, handle hundreds of real estate transactions over the course of their career. Having an expert on your side is critical.
Buying and selling is emotional. A home often symbolizes family, rest, and security â€” itâ€™s not just four walls and a roof. Because of this, home buying and selling can be an emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the biggest purchase theyâ€™ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on both the emotional and financial issues most important to you.
