Do I Really Need a Real Estate Agent?

When buying your Florida dream home - do you really need a Realtor®? Many people move from other areas to Florida after vacationing here for many years. When they are anticipating the move they search a real estate listings website and look at many homes on the Internet. They’ve done a lot of homework before they even get in front of an agent.

At that point, what’s the agent’s job? There’s a lot more to it than you might think! For one thing, the agent is an expert in this market and knows things the prospective home buyer does not. These may include:

  • · Proposed improvements to the area or,
  • · Proposed development that might negatively impact the value,
  • · Other similar homes that have just come on the market,
  • · Economic conditions in the community,
  • · How local lenders view that type of property,
  • · The State of Florida real estate laws

Most important, the agent can negotiate for you without becoming emotional. Buyers and sellers can get caught up in the moment of the sale and let their emotions rule their actions. A seller may insist on overpricing a much-loved home. A buyer may be too quick to put a big offer down on a house they’ve fallen in love with. The art of negotiation is something your agent is trained in thoroughly and the agent knows that you want the house, but you want it at a fair price. If that agent is looking to earn your repeat business they will do their best for you on this deal.
