How Can Real Estate Agents Help You

When you work with a Real Estate agent there are a few things you can expect:

  • Help finding a lender who can get you pre-approved for buying a home
  • Help finding the right home for your situation
  • Connecting with professionals like home inspectors and title agents
  • Negotiating an offer on your behalf (whether you’re buying or selling)
  • Communicating with other players during the course of the sale
  • Helping you navigate the mortgage process
  • Advising you on properly pricing your home as a seller
  • Marketing the property heavily on behalf of a seller
  • Screening potential buyers to make sure they’re qualified
  • Attending home inspections and appraisals on behalf of sellers

Real estate agents essentially represent their clients in the home buying or selling processes. Agents can’t force you to do anything you don’t want to do, however. They still have to get your approval to move forward with deals.
