With so much information available online, clients sometimes ask, “Why should we hire a real estate agent?”
Licensed real estate agents have access to the multiple listing service (MLS), providing exposure to numerous online websites, buyers and buyer agent’s. The MLS is an essential tool creating a steady flow of foot traffic for a residential listing.
The seller should never be present at showings or open house. If there is no listing agent, potential buyers may become uncomfortable by an owner’s presence creating a lost opportunity to secure an offer for the property.
A good real estate agent removes the seller from the emotional aspects of the transaction and act as a buffer between the buyer and seller during negotiations.
