As all Windsor real estate agents should know, buying a home is really a business transaction. Yes, emotions from a buyer and seller are definitely involved, but overall, an agent always understand that buying a home is usually the most expensive financial decision their client will make.
So that is why it is imperative that a buyer finds a real estate agent that is a neighborhood specialist. When significant amounts of money are involved, then an agent who knows what they are doing, understands the market and has first hand knowledge of the community is what a buyer needs.
Why should a buyer pick a professional agent as opposed to a friend or relative that has little to no experience? Wouldn’t you rather have an experienced surgeon operate on you than one in medical school? And what about these considerations:
1. Do you want your friend/relative to know your personal business? If you have problems qualifying for a loan, or if there are other issues that are sensitive, wouldn’t you rather tell a professional your financial issues than someone you share the holidays with?
2. If you are dissatisfied, it’s harder to confront an agent that is a close to you.
3. If you hire a friend/family member that is a part time agent, you could be missing out on some of the best properties out there, simply because they don’t hear of the what is happening on a timely basis.
4. Negotiating skills are what makes or breaks a deal. With Windsor real estate agents, you want to make sure that your bid is being handled in a timely, efficient and professional manner with your best interests in mind.
