Why Hire an Escondido Real Estate Agent
No doubt you have looked at homes on the Internet. According to the National Association of Realtors®, 90% of home buyers begin their home search on the Internet. Perhaps you have visited Zillow, Trulia, or Realtor.com. Maybe you have even attended a few open houses. These are all great first steps as they allow you to become familiar with the real estate market in your area of interest—home buying in Escondido.
Your next step (if you have not already done so) is to hire an Escondido Real Estate Agent that is also a qualified Realtor®. (There are certain interview questions that you may want to consider when seeking a qualified Realtor®.)
What are the benefits of hiring a Realtor® that sells Escondido Real Estate?
A Realtor® has access to all of the homes on the MLS database. S/he can find out if homes are actually available for sale, their real status (i.e., how many offers are already on the table, what the bank is looking for, etc.), and whether they are viable homes to buy.
A Realtor® can also ascertain whether the distressed home that you may be interested in may become an approved short sale (or whether you are interested in buying a home that may not actually be a viable sale).
A Realtor® knows the state contracts inside and out.
Realtors® are frequently acquainted with and network with other Realtors® in the same city. So, agents sometimes hear about properties not yet on the market that may be to your liking.
Realtors® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics. The Realtor’s fiduciary obligation is to his or her client.
So, instead of being a maverick and cruising the neighborhood aimlessly trying to identify properties actually available for sale, why not hire a Realtor® to help you purchase your next Escondido Real Estate?
