How both home buyers and sellers can benefit from the services of a reputable realtor?

by John P Wells Assisting Home Buyers and Sellers in North Shore M

If you’re looking to buy or sell a home, a realtor can provide you with valuable assistance throughout the process.

Benefits for buyers

  • Market knowledge: Experienced realtors like John Wells know all about the current market, prices, interest rates, and other home buying concerns.
  • Financing: Have you planned on how you’re going to pay for your home? A realtor can help you determine exactly what you can afford and advise you on different home loan schemes you otherwise couldn’t have known about.
  • Narrowed search: A professional realtor can assist you in narrowing your search based on what you want and how much you can afford. This eliminates homes that don’t meet your criteria, thereby saving you an invaluable amount of time.
  • Contracts and negotiations: A realtor will help you determine the overall cost of your home purchase, including the asking price and other factors such as contingencies, various inspections, appliances, seller's assistance with required closing costs, etc. Once you’re familiar with all the costs, they’ll also help you in making a written offer of purchase that can be presented to the seller. They will even negotiate as your advocate.

Benefits for sellers

  • Pricing: A realtor can help you determine the right asking price based on a competitive market analysis. This is important because if the price is too high, your home will sit in the market listings unsold.
  • Neighborhood knowledge: A realtor that lives, and works, in your area, will know all about the things your home’s prospective buyers will care about such as property taxes, schools, zoning laws, demographics, proposed projects which may affect your neighborhood, noise levels, shopping, environmental factors, and more.
  • Efficiency: Realtors don’t waste time showing your house to just anybody who responds to the listing. Any prospective buyers are screened to ensure they are actually capable of buying your home. Realtors weed out and eliminate, those are not in a position to purchase your home and would clearly be a waste of time
  • Negotiation: Locating a buyer is only the end of the marketing phase. Now the process advances to the next phase where the seller and the buyer must agree to the price, terms, and many contingencies. A professional realtor like John Wells from Newburyport will help you draft the written contracts and counteroffers.

A home transaction involves one of the biggest financial investments most people will ever make in their lives. And the consequences, if not done correctly, can last a lifetime.
