Buying a new property and navigating the real estate market is a complex, and often stressful, undertaking for buyers.
It’s no secret that the real estate industry has evolved in numerous ways over the last decade. With the internet and mobile devices taking the market by storm, buyers have unprecedented access to property information at their fingertips, without depending on a real estate agent.
In some instances, property searches have been abandoned altogether by home buyers agent in an attempt to make themselves more efficient with their time. Some realtors assume that since the majority of consumers search for homes online, it has somehow become the consumer’s responsibility rather than their agent. So that begs the question, are buyer’s agents still necessary? In short, yes and here’s why.
A good home buyer’s agent will still carry out many tasks in the buyer’s best interest - tasks that reach far beyond the property search function.
When it comes to buying a home, buyers try to engineer the ultimate balancing act of buying the new one first, THEN putting the current one up on the market before the ink is even dry on the purchase contract. The object-and expectation-is to find that perfect home, then to put the old one on the market in the hope of selling it in the treasured but increasingly mythical simultaneous closing. Just playing it out in your mind is exhausting, but making it actually happen is a truly massive undertaking. What would make anyone think that such an effort is worth trying? Fear! Fear that you might not be able to find the right home after selling your current home. Fear of being homeless. Fear of temporary housing. Fear of the dreaded “double move” (moving from the old home to temporary housing, then again to the new home). Those fears may be legitimate at some level, but there are even greater causes for concern if you plan to buy before selling. Homebuyers typically don't have in-depth knowledge about the real estate markets where they wish to buy homes. They need agents to guide them through neighborhoods and find homes that best suit their needs. Some agents specialize in working with buyers. They help their buyer-clients navigate all aspects of the home buying process, from finding homes to choosing the best mortgage companies. Here's a sampling of the tasks buyer agents undertake on a daily basis.
