Why Hire a Realtor?


Can you buy or sell a home in Bristol County without losing thousands of dollars on your bottom line?  We all want that, right?  But you need to do a few things.  Be sure to hire a Real Estate Agent when looking to buy or sell your home.

Hi, I am Patti Hunt with Century 21 Topsail Realty.  That’s an awesome question and with all this talk about working with companies to buy or sell your home without an experienced agent or by hiring a discount brokerage who will sell your home for next to nothing because they lack the experience to be able to compete with agents and brokers who truly know how to outperform them in experience, negotiation, and sales.  It makes me crazy!

Your home is most likely your largest asset, so teaming up with seasoned, experienced real estate and mortgage professionals is critical.  Having the right professionals on your team advocating for you can truly make the difference between you losing a lot of money and interest in your home when selling.

If you hire an inexperienced real estate professional to capitalize on your investment or a lender who isn’t experienced enough to actually know what programs are available for you to capitalize on, well, that does not bode well for you.  So hire someone experienced.

Lastly, what about negotiations?  What if you were being sued?  Wouldn’t you want the very best attorney to keep you out of jail or to keep more money in your pocket in case you have to pay out?  Of course, you would!

Well, your home is no different.  Remember, it’s most likely your largest investment, so be careful not to hire the agent whose only card they can pull out is to reduce their commission because they don’t have the negotiation skills and experience.

Hey if they can’t negotiate for themselves, that means they can’t negotiate on your behalf either and it could end up costing you thousands and thousands of dollars.  So take my advice.  Being a specialist, having lots of experience, and knowing how to negotiate is the right choice when purchasing or selling your largest investment.  I’m Patti Hunt and I am committed to achieving your real estate goals.
