Three Perks of Working With a Real Estate Agent When Buying a Home

January 10, 2021

While you may be extremely confident in your ability to surf the web and do your own research, and you may even know exactly what you’re looking for in a new home, working with an experienced real estate agent can completely transform the home buying experience and offer additional benefits you likely haven’t even thought of yet. There’s no shame in scrolling through listings and dreaming of your new life in any of those potential winners, but working with a real estate agent can make it a reality for you—and often at a better price! Review these perks of working with real estate agents and how these professionals can support you through your family’s next milestone.

MLS Access

Two people shaking hands

In most cases, you’ll have to work with a real estate agent to access the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which requires a real estate license. When helping you buy a home, your agent can utilize this powerful real estate tool that provides alerts for new listing notifications, upcoming home showings, and depending on their network, they may even be able to discover available homes for sale that aren’t listed on directories, as some homeowners may not want the fact that they’re selling publicized.

Valuable and Expanded Leads

You can trust your agent to filter those calls that lead nowhere, employ the most effective strategy to market you as a buyer, and know the lay of the land. A real estate team that understands your needs and dealbreakers will also be able to provide insight you may not be aware of, such as knowledge of a home’s listing history.

You can also rely on your agent’s professional network, which will include a band of other experienced professionals who are also diligently working with clients and constantly interacting with other agents and discussing properties. You’ll save plenty of time and energy by working with someone who will gladly handle the grunt work and simultaneously focus on big-picture details.

An Expert Negotiator on Your Side

Money is obviously the most important perk, no matter how much wiggle room is available in your budget. An agent’s extensive market knowledge and access to available data will prime them to guide you through the entire transaction, including working with contract documents, proposing counteroffers, and settlement statements. Scoring you the best purchase price is your agent’s priority and you can also trust them to spot potential problems with a property that may significantly impact the list price.
