If you're thinking of buying or selling a home soon, you may wonder if you need to work with a real estate agent.An expert can alleviate the stress of such a complex process. So it's always good to have a professional on your side. After all, they're only here to help.

Real estate agents do more than look up houses. They are essentially your ultimate logistics facilitators. To help ensure your journey goes smoothly, they are the ones that keep all sides of home buying in conjunction with each other, from the moment you all sit down and discuss your expectations to when it’s time to make a deal. They solve any upcoming problems and prevent any potential issues.

Let's dive deeper into the duties of a real estate agent and how their company can benefit you.

Benefits of a Buyer's Agent

An agent's first and foremost responsibility is to put their client's needs above their own. They realize their primary purpose is to find your dream home and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen and gain your satisfaction. In doing this, they must educate and provide enough adequate information to make buying a home possible, search for homes that will suit your situation, and expertly negotiate deals to benefit you.

There are several services you can expect from an agent that you couldn't otherwise do on your own, such as:

  • Providing comparable sales data from related residential real estate deals

  • Providing sales data from multiple listing services

  • Show property profiles that sometimes may not be available yet to the public

  • Suggesting pricing strategies served to positively affect you based on each client's personalized financial situations

  • Reviewing professional documents for potential loopholes and obtaining disclosures

  • Calculating annual facts and trends about an area

  • Serve as a buffer between you and the seller's agent

  • Serve as a trusted contact for lenders in order to support people on loans

These are just some of the many jobs an agent can do. There's so much more their knowledge and experience can bring you that typically isn't a possibility if you try to navigate it on your own, especially for contract and closing phases. You have the best potential to receive a favorable deal, and you now have access to a vast professional network of other agents and homes that realtors can leverage.

Benefits of a Seller's Agent

If you're selling, seeking an agent comes with its own advantages. For example, even IF you can attend every open house in your area to see surrounding trends and prices, it isn't easy. It is hard to know every piece of information necessary to price your home competitively while still ensuring you profit from it. Experienced agents will fully understand this knowledge and use it to price your home at its best-selling price. It's what they do for a living. They are aware of the market daily because they sell homes daily, so they'll have the best awareness of what factors will achieve productivity. Other services include:

  • Accessibility to marketing materials and effective selling strategies

  • Professionally captured media to enhance a home's potential

  • Excellent home exposure due to network connections and technological outlets

  • Proficient promotion to over 200 LRG agents

  • Home stager, inspector, and repair contractor referrals

  • Negotiation expertise with contract deals and buyer interest


Access to tools like effective marketing and professional negotiation are just some of the many reasons having a listing agent result in a more favorable experience for your overall selling process. Don't worry if you listed your home too low or too high. Instead, let an agent you trust give you valuable guidance to give your home the attention and compensation it deserves.
