Do You Need a Real Estate Agent?

tomlinson Recent surveys have shown that nearly 80% of all home buyers found a real estate agent on the internet.  Ten percent found an agent from a “for sale” sign.  Seven percent found one through a relocation service, two percent from an advertisement in a magazine or newspaper, and one percent through open houses.

Interesting information for sure for real estate agents, but information that is equally important for home buyers is the fact that nearly 88 percent of home buyers used a real estate agent or broker.  It would appear that a great majority of home buyers understand one simple truth:  that despite the fact that a buyer must pay a commission, the real estate agent is worth every penny.

Buying real estate is serious business.  For some buyers, buying a home is the single most important financial transaction they will ever make.  A trained, professional real estate agent has the skills necessary to take a transaction from start to finish and handle it smoothly.  A trained real estate agent is a problem-solver and they can keep the sale together when problems arise.  A trained real estate agent can mean, literally, tens of thousands of dollars to you, the buyer, and they can mean the difference between peace of mind and abject panic.

It should be very apparent why 88 percent of home buyers use a real estate agent.  They want the job done and they want the job done correctly.

For those of you who are professional athletes and entertainers, can you really afford to not use a trained real estate professional?
