Estate agents are experts in helping home buyers and home sellers. They know all of the information so important to those looking to invest into a property and those looking to buy their first home, upsize or downsize with a move, or step into the new role of being a landlord. They are helpful and knowledgeable, and when they don’t know the answer to a unique and complicated situation they are certainly capable and willing to find the answer for you.
However, they are experts in more than just how to buy or sell a home.
Estate agents are probably one of the top experts of knowing all there is about a community. They are highly invested in the community they work within and it is to their advantage to know neighborhoods, schools, community green spaces, businesses, and projects that are due to enhance the livability of an area.
There might be a school that is due to undergo a renovation, a playground that is going to be built in the summer, or a local music program that holds concerts free in a park in the summer months. If you were aware of these attributes in an area you might be more inclined to look for a property near them, but without the right estate agent those opportunities for consideration are lost.
It helps when you are choosing, meeting, and working with an agent that you let them know about what you want in an area you live. Perhaps you don’t care if you have to commute further to buy food if you have a walking area nearby, or you want to be able to quickly stop by a market on the way home from work without having to drive out of the way thus expending valuable time in the car instead of with family.
Those may seem trivial when looking for a new home, but once you are moved in and living there it will definitely contribute to your lifestyle and enjoyment of your day to day life.
Consider what you like about where you live now and what is hard or bothersome about your location. Express those concerns to your agent so they can point out those items that you have deemed important when considering a property against another. They can also use that information to point you to the direction of a neighborhood or area that you might not know exists or hasn’t caught your attention.
Looking at a property might not allow you to fully embrace what living there will be like, but your agent will know. So take advantage of the opportunity to have such a highly skilled and knowledgeable expert available to you.
Buying a home happens for many reasons and those reasons are as unique as each individual or family shopping for a home. This puts your agent in a working relationship with many people all looking for something special that they need or want in a new home and location, including you. It contributes to learning and knowing intricate details about a home, a neighborhood, or community.
Choose the agent that will make the process of buying a home one in which your individuality matters. The same can be said for the agent you choose to sell your home, for they have to know more than how many bathrooms your home has and they should be able to express your home’s individual attributes as they play out for a new owner looking for a property special enough to fill their wants and needs.
