Reasons to Hire The Bannon Group Before Entering the Market!
Whether you are buying or selling a home, the process is never as easy as it initially seems to the untrained professional. In our very connected world, there are so many technology options that can give a false sense of security to sellers that think their best cost-effective option is to list their property as ‘For Sale by Owner’ or ‘FSBO’ as we commonly refer to it; that is until any number of issues arise that will require the immediate attention of a licensed real estate professional. That’s why you need an experienced real estate professional to guide you on the path to achieving your ultimate goal!
The 5 reasons you need us in your corner haven’t changed but have rather been strengthened by the projections of higher mortgage interest rates and home prices as the market continues to pick up steam.
1. What do you do with all this paperwork?
State regulations of contracts required for a successful sale can change from time to time. The licensed Realtors® at The Bannon Group are experts in the local markets and can guide you through the stacks of paperwork necessary to make your dream a reality.
2. So you found your dream house, now what?
There are over 230 potential steps that need to take place during every successful real estate transaction. Rely on someone who has been there before, someone who knows what these actions are, to ensure you achieve your dream; rely on The Bannon Group.
3. Are you a good negotiator?
Not convinced that you need an agent to sell your home? After looking at the list of parties that you will need to be prepared to negotiate with, you’ll soon realize the value of a Realtor®. From the buyers (who want the best deals possible), to home inspection companies, and all the way to the appraisers; there can be as many as 11 different people who you will need to be knowledgeable of, and answer to, during the process.
4. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?
It is crucial for your home to be priced correctly from the start in order to maximize its marketability to buyers and minimize the time that it’s on the market. You need someone who is not emotionally connected to your home to give you its true value. Still thinking of selling it yourself? In a recent article by the National Association of Realtors, FSBOs achieve prices significantly lower than the prices of similar properties sold by real estate agents:
“FSBOs earn an average of $60,000 to $90,000 less on the sale of their home than sellers who work with a real estate agent.”
5. Do you know what’s really going on in the market?
There are countless resources for information available on the housing market but which ones are accurate and of the accurate resources, which ones are current? The agents of The Bannon Group have their fingers on the pulse of the market and are capable of giving you accurate and current information about the area(s) you are interested in.
Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, advises:
“When getting help with money, whether it’s insurance, real estate or investments, you should always look for someone with the heart of a teacher, not the heart of a salesman.”
At The Bannon Group, our agents will not only provide accurate information but also educate you on ‘the why.’
You wouldn’t replace the engine in your car without a trusted mechanic, so why would you make one of the most important financial decisions of your life, buying or selling a home, without hiring an experienced Realtor®? The Bannon Group is ready to help you today.
