Why You Should Hire a Tampa Bay Area Real Estate Agent

Whether you’re planning to buy a home in Clearwater, FL this year or sell your current home, it pays to have someone in your corner. An experienced professional who knows the in’s and out’s of Tampa Bay Area real estate will be able to guide you through the process, explaining along the way. And with the recent changes in the Florida real estate market— rising housing prices, mortgage rates— your reasons to team up with a Tampa Bay real estate agent have actually strengthened. Below are just a few reasons to hire a real estate agent:

Paperwork
Your St. Pete home sale requires different paperwork that may be hard to understand. “Each state has different regulations regarding the contracts required for a successful sale, and these regulations are constantly changing,” explained KCM. Your real estate agent, an expert in the Tampa Bay real estate market, can guide you through each one.

After the Home Search
According to the Orlando Regional REALTOR Association, there are over 230 possible actions that need to happen for every successful real estate transaction. Having an experienced professional there to make sure you complete each step can be a great benefit to you as a Florida home buyer and home seller.

Negotiations
One of the most important aspects of a real estate transaction includes negotiations. There is a list of parties involved in both the sale and purchase of a home and you’ll need to negotiate with many of them. Are you prepared to do so? Your agent will be. They’ve done this before and know the best practices.

Knowing Values
What happens when your Clearwater homes aren’t priced correctly? They may not sell in the right amount of time or attract the right homebuyers. Your agent will be able to price your home correctly from the beginning and give you your home’s true value.

In fact, according to the National Association of REALTORS, “the typical FSBO home sold for $184,000 compared to $230,000 among agent-assisted home sales.”
