10 Things That You Should Know 

 

1. The listing agent represents the seller. Who is going to look out for your best interests if you don't have your own agent?

2. Without years of experience, Would you act as your own stockbroker, attorney, tax accountant, etc. ?

3. What other professional service comes to you paid for by someone else?

4. Skimming the newspaper or going to open houses only lets you see homes that have not sold. Hot properties sell quickly and realtors know where they are.

5. Driving up and down the street looking for signs isn't an option in a hot market. Houses are sold before the sign goes up.

6. If you sign your name at an open house or call on a sign, you "belong" to the listing agent.

7. Real estate agents look at hundreds of homes and know their inventory. They can tell you if you can do better than this or if you need to jump on it.

8. Financing is the first step. They can refer you to top notch mortgage people.

9. Third party negotiating is less emotionally charged and smoother.

10. What you don't know can hurt you.
