A frequently ask question I get all the time is- how do you get paid as a real estate agent? My answer is simple!
First, understand how it works. Typically, if you are purchasing a home, you do not have to pay the real estate agent! A buyer's agent gets paid by the seller! So using a real estate agent to purchase a home is FREE for you! Use the resources and time of a real estate agent to help you narrow down the properties your interested to see!
There are many advantages of using a real estate agent to purchase a home. Here are just a few that pop out the most.
1. Help you find a property you love!
2. Help negotiate and determine the value of the home.
3. Help book inspections and meet closing requirements.
4. Help make the buying process as simple and as hassle free!
5. Keep files and documentation organized.
Secondly, if you want to sell your home - you will pay commission to the listing agent (seller's agent) and also the real estate agent that brings the buyer.(under normal circumstances).
Using a real estate agent to sell your home is the best way to get the most VALUE and to sell within the LEAST amount of time! Some markets can be tough, which can make selling your home more difficult due to all homes on the market. It is best to consult with a real estate agent and see how your property will be marketed, priced, and managed for best results!
