Should You Work with a Real Estate Agent?

Attempting to buy a home without a real estate agent can make the home buying process more difficult. It may also keep you from seeing all homes on the market.

Most homes are widely accessible to buyers on websites, but some sellers want privacy and don’t want the sale advertised. In those cases, only your real estate agent will know the homes are for sale.

There are also some home features you won’t usually find online. If you need a home with space for an office or an attached mother-in-law unit, your agent will know which homes may meet your needs. If you plan to add a bedroom or build a fence in the backyard, he or she will also know if local zoning ordinances will allow it.

Your real estate agent can also save the day when it comes to the mountain of paperwork involved in buying a home. The odds of making mistakes on the written offer, the written and signed counteroffer, and other important details drop substantially when you’re working with agents like The Matt Wolf Team who know the paperwork inside and out.
