Now more than ever, buyers and sellers need guidance from an experienced real estate professional. According to experts at KCM, the five-top reasons are even more important, thanks to rising interest rates and home prices.

1. What do you do with all this paperwork?

A true real estate professional is an expert in the market and can guide people through the stacks of state regulated paperwork necessary to make a transaction a reality.

2. Ok, so you found your dream house, now what?

According to the some sources, there are more than 230 possible actions that need to take place during every successful real estate transaction. Buyers and sellers need an expert to lead the way from start to finish.

3. Are you a good negotiator?

From the buyer (who wants the best deal possible), to the home inspection companies, to the appraiser, there are at least 11 different people that sellers will have to be knowledgeable with and answer to, during the process.

4. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?

According to the National Association of Realtors, “the typical For Sale By Owner home sold for $184,000 compared to $230,000 among agent-assisted home sales.”

5. Do you know what’s really going on in the market?

Hiring an agent who has a finger on the pulse of the market will make your buying/selling experience an educated one. You need someone who is going to tell you the truth, not just what they think you want to hear.
