Do I Really Want To Hire A Realtor?
Who Pays The Realtor Fees When Buying A Home?
This is the exact reason people ask WHY they should even hire a Realtor. The average buyer does not know who pays the Realtor and for first-time buyers, that is a-okay! In truth, there are no guarantees; however in most cases the seller pays the Realtor fees.
How Are The Schools?
This is another question that Realtors should tread very lightly with. There is no doubt that schools impact property values. Just like tips for selecting a neighborhood, a top Realtor should be able to provide you with names or websites where you can find information on the local schools so that you can determine whether or not the schools are acceptable to you.
How Is The Neighborhood/Area?
When buying a home, a common question home buyers have is regarding the neighborhood/area. As a real estate professional, there are rules against steering and providing personal insight into specific areas and neighborhoods. This doesn’t mean that your Realtor cannot provide you with tips to help you choose the right neighborhood when buying a home. Many buyers wonder about the growth of the local economy, crime statistics, taxes, and local amenities. If you have a top Realtor when buying a home, you should be able to receive all of the pertinent information to allow you to make an educated decision on areas and neighborhoods.
