Buying or selling a home in North Texas is complicated, time-consuming and often frustrating. That’s why it’s so important to have a realtor in Little Elm TX by your side for every step involved in either process. A realtor can eliminate a lot of the stress that comes with two of the biggest financial transactions you’ll make in your life. What exactly can a licensed realtor do for you?
Protect your financial interests. When you work with a licensed realtor in Little Elm TX, their fiduciary responsibility is to you. They are bound by contract and the ethical standards of the National Association of Realtors to do everything in their power to make sure that your financial interests are protected. If you’re a buyer, they’ll not only negotiate on your behalf to ensure that you get the best possible price for a new home, they’ll also make sure that everything you need to know about a property is disclosed to you. If you’re a seller, they’ll negotiate to make sure that you get the maximum dollar amount that you can get for the home you’re selling.
Make sense of complex, changing real estate regulations. No matter if you’re buying or selling your first home or your tenth, you can’t keep up with the rules, regulations, laws, contracts and procedures of real estate the way a licensed realtor can. Their business is real estate so they must stay on top of every change in the way real estate business is transacted.
Find the right home. Of course realtors will take your list of wants, needs, likes, dislikes and budget and make a master list of homes for you to see – something you may be able to do using an internet search; but they’ll also provide you with information that you can’t find on the internet. They’ll tell you about the school district that serves the home you’re interested in. They’ll tell you whether or not your should worry about the condition of the air conditioner or the roof in your dream home. They’ll remind you to look past ugly paint and worn-out carpeting in a home that has a great structure or a great location so that you can find a diamond-in-the-rough that you might otherwise have bypassed.
Price your home to sell. A licensed realtor in Little Elm TX knows your neighborhood and has access to all the latest sales data so that you can price your home to sell – and to maximize your profit. According to the National Association of Realtors, in 2012, the median sales price for homeowners using a realtor was $215,000. The sales price for those who didn’t was $174,900.
Help with the closing process. Closing documents, whether you’re buying or selling, can be many, many pages long and are very detailed. When your realtor accompanies you to closing, you can be sure you’ll have someone with you who’ll not only explain the documents to you but who’ll also be able to call attention to problems in the contract documents.
