Ever wondered whether to hire a real estate agent, or sell the properties yourself? Here are six reasons why you should hire a real estate agent:
Ideal to have two registered real estate negotiators/agents (REN/REA) to represent buyer or seller individually. Not uncommon to sometimes only have one REN/REA between two parties. Since all REN/REA are required to be registered with the authorities, they are governed and bound by a code of conduct throughout the entire sales process.
For sellers, agents know how to market the property aggressively and in all forms of media, especially popular social platforms such as Propwall.my and StarProperty.my. For buyers, agents will have easy access to all properties listed by other agents; they can help to track down properties that meet the criteria and set up the necessary appointments. Above all, they are skilled at keeping up good relations on both sides.
For sellers, agents help to put the right price tag on; not too high till it becomes a stale listing, and not too low till money is left on the table. For buyers, they have a wealth of detailed market information to find the dream home in an ideal neighbourhood at the right price.
A tricky business to handle the nitty gritty details such as complaints or counter-offers. Real estate agents are professionals who have been trained to present their respective client’s case in the best light and are able to remove themselves from the emotional aspect in order to close the deal successfully.
Real estate agents are required to perform necessary checks on a variety of important documents, and this process is vital to ensuring that no detail is overlooked which may cause any complications after the sale. Some of the documents include caveats as well as the title (ownership, property details, property size, etc).
At the end of it all, they are responsible for facilitating the contracts and escrow to a successful sales close. After closing, they will also still be in touch or on standby to assist in case there are any further questions that pop up after the excitement has settled.
