May I ask you a question? What are the pro's and con's of representing your self against a large lawsuit vs hiring an attorney? What are the pro's and con's of suffering with an unknown illness and going to Walgreens and reading labels trying to find the right remedy vs visiting your Dr. for a diagnosis and the correct medications or treatment? I thought so! Most folks would not even think twice about the best answers here.
The truth is many Home Buyers take for granted the largest purchase they will make in a lifetime. Signing reams of paper at a closing without even reading them, walking thru an Open House one time and signing a contract to purchase as if buying groceries at Publix. Do Not (as the old saying goes) have a fool for a client!
Realtors are professionals, choose a Professional. Choose a Full Time Experienced Agent that will have your back. Realtors are held to a code of ethics, home sellers are not. Realtors are licensed and therefore must provide a service that is tested and checked. There is continuing Education. There is day in and day out experience. Home Sellers may or may not be educated about the laws or have the experience to negotiate with a bank or know what to do if the home does not appraise. Many people feel that if they negotiate directly with the seller that they can save the "commission" the seller may be offering on the sale. The reality is the money the seller may save by working with you ( the buyer) directly is not going in YOUR pocket. Believe it.
A good Realtor will use his/her negotiating skills to get you the best terms. A good Realtor will place your needs and wants above his/her own and will advise and hold your hand all the way to the Moving Day! I have even delivered pizza to a family in need of a meal after a full day of moving in. It is just what we do and I for one love what I do. I know I can save you time and money. I know there are skeptics, there will always be. That's ok. You asked and I answered honestly. If you are thinking of buying I hope you take the time to hire a Realtor for your very own! Today more than ever.
