The Importance of Using a Real Estate Agent

Real Estate

In the age of the internet, many consumers believe they can log on to the Internet and get any question they have answered. Need to know how to fix a tire, go to YouTube. Need a good recipe, go to Pinterest. Need to know how to buy and sell real estate, go to... Google? The truth is, the more information you come across, the more likely you are to become confused.

With shows like House Hunters, Flip or Flop, and many more on the HGTV network, you may think you're getting a behind the scenes glimpse into what it's like to buy or sell a home, but the truth is, you only see a tiny fraction of what it takes.

Now more than ever, it's essential to use a Dallas real estate expert to help guide you through the process. Since 2017 more than 300,000 new residents have moved into the North Texas area. Whether you're considering buying a home or selling a home in Dallas, it's important to have someone helping to guide you on your journey.

Here are a few reasons why it’s important to have a Dallas REALTOR® in your corner –

There's more to buying a home than submitting an offer and hoping it gets picked. There are multiple steps that need to take place before submitting an offer and making it to the closing table including getting pre-approved, home inspection and negotiations. You'll want someone who knows and understands these steps, explaining each piece of the puzzle, ensuring nothing is overlooked.

Having a skilled negotiator is key when it comes to any real estate transaction. As a Dallas REALTOR®, my job is to work toward getting you the best possible deal. From the offer to negotiating repairs, I focus on your needs and take the steps necessary to make sure the deal makes it to the closing table. It can be a tough situation negotiating against someone who possesses extensive real estate knowledge.

Knowing how to price your home is the most crucial piece when trying to sell it. Dallas real estate agents have the tools needed to price your home accurately. There are many factors that need to be considered when pricing your home, and if you don't have all the right information, your home will most likely not sell in a timely manner.

Gone are the days of putting a sign in your yard and hoping someone who drives by wants to buy your home. As a Dallas REALTOR®, I have crafted an extensive marketing plan to get your home seen by as many buyers as possible including syndication to as many as 900 websites, social media exposure, brochures and more.

As you can see, hiring a Dallas real estate agent such as myself will make your buying or selling experience an educated one. You need someone who is going to tell you the truth, not just what they think you want to hear. Today’s real estate market is still competitive. Having a professional who’s been there before to guide you through the process is a simple step that will give you a huge advantage!
