real estate agent

 

Have you ever wondered about purchasing your dream home?  You know the one:  the sprawling yard, the perfectly landscaped hedges and that kitchen with new appliances—or is it now time to finally downsize as your home is now just seeming too big, and the maintenance is overwhelming?  There is no better time than now to turn those dreams into a reality. They say timing is everything, and a hot real estate market and the right real estate agent from UBC Homes can get you into that perfect house quicker and easier than you may think.

 

Finding the Right Real Estate Agent!

The key to selling your pre-existing home is not just a matter of luck.  Rather, it is a combination of factors ranging from a hot real estate market to the amount of listings in your area to your home’s location.  For example, the homes around UBC will sell far faster than those located on a busy corridor such as Knight Street.  However, the most important factor in selling your home is a real estate agent.  A real estate agent is your lifeline to a speedy and professional home sale.

 

The right real estate agent should be someone who exudes a sense of honesty and trust with you as you will be working very closely with this person as both of you try to reach the end goal of selling your home.  Make sure to find a real estate agent who also invokes a sense of professionalism and confidence—someone who you feel can get the job done and will get you the asking price (or above) that you have set.

 

What Does a Real Estate Agent Do for You?

A real estate agent opens up your home to many different potential homebuyers and is able to network with other real estate agents, thus bringing more traffic into your home.  A real estate agent also knows the ins and outs of the real estate business and brings a sense of know-how, professionalisms and experience to the table.  This can go a long way when it comes to selling your home.  Remember, it is in every real estate agents best interest to sell your home as soon as possible as they are working on commission.

 

A real estate agent is also aware of the real estate trends in your area and what other homes (comparable to yours) are selling for.  Thus, the right real estate agent should be able to help you set a price on your home and ensure you get that price when you do sell your home. A real estate agent will also take care of all of the paperwork once the sale has been finalized. This includes dealing with the buyers’ real estate agent to take care of any liens or other complications that may arise after the final sale.
