Benefits to having a local real estate agent:

They are easier to meet up with.

It’s a no-brainer; it’s way easier to schedule appointments with someone who is close to you than for them to travel to get to your house! Convenience is only the cherry on top when it comes to hiring a local Realtor®.

They know the area.

An agent who knows the neighborhood can help eliminate areas that don’t fit your search criteria as they should already mastered this stuff. If you’re selling a home, they know the features of your home that stand out and can promote them well. Say, if there is an excellent view of the city from the deck of your house, they can push that out to potential buyers.

They know the market and how to promote property.

Local agents have access to recent market data and analysis of current market trends, which will help buyers get top dollar for their home and help sellers pay fair market value.

If you’re in an area where bidding wars break out, the moment a home goes open in the market, then you need a local Realtor®. You don’t want to miss out on every single home in the area only because someone who knew the market better saw it first.

A local Realtor® also comes in handy when you’re listing your home for sale. An agent who is unfamiliar with the housing market in your area could end up pricing your home too low or too high.

They have connections.

They can serve you better.
