When you’ve made the decision to buy a new home and begin your search, you might ask yourself if there’s any point using a traditional Real Estate Agent? After all, you can save money by using an online version, or just go it alone.


When you’ve made the decision to buy a new home and begin your search, you might ask yourself if there’s any point using a traditional Real Estate Agent? After all, you can save money by using an online version, or just go it alone.

Well, Real Estate Agents do have their benefits, and if you’re wondering exactly what a Real Estate Agent can bring to the table when you’re looking for a new home, we’re here to offer some guidance.

Experience

The majority of Real Estate Agents will have a lot more experience buying and selling houses than you will, and that’s a benefit that you just won’t find anywhere else.

Most Real Estate Agents will start working in the industry in a junior position and work their way up; so the chances are your Real Estate Agent will have years and years of experience. Why choose to go it alone when you can take real advantage of that?

Specialist and Local Knowledge

The specialist and local knowledge that many Real Estate Agents possess is a real bonus if you’re planning on moving to a completely different area that you’re not too familiar with.

Rather than having to do extensive research all of your own, you can simply make a call to your Real Estate Agent and ask them; it couldn’t be simpler.

The local knowledge that they possess is a huge bonus as well if you’re going to be looking for schools for your children, or want to know the best specific area to bring up a family, or live during your retirement.

Marketing

Marketing a house that’s for sale is where most sellers come up short, and where Real Estate Agents really shine. They know how to market properties, and the chances are there will be a Real Estate Agent marketing the property you’re interested in buying.

Connections

Connections are another thing that come with the territory; a Real Estate Agent is going to have plenty of connections that you won’t have access to.

Want to know the best firm to do your conveyancing? Ask your Real Estate Agent.

How about where you should look for home insurance? Your Real Estate Agent will probably have a few suggestions.

You see where where coming from? Alongside that, even if an agent doesn’t have a property that you particularly like, they’ll know someone who does. This makes Real Estate Agents well worth their fees.

Support

Finally, support.

If you’ve chosen to go it alone, or just opted for an online Real Estate Agent, you won’t receive the same level of support as you would with a traditional Real Estate Agent. Unlike having someone on the end of the phone to answer questions, to show you around properties and generally offer you their local knowledge and experience, an online estate agent is just the other side of a computer screen.

If you’re selling your house on your own, there’s going to be next to no support. This in itself makes choosing a traditional agent worthwhile.
