Do I Need a Real Estate Agent When I Buy a Home?

On in Buying by

With a wealth of online resources, an increasing ‘for sale by owner’ market, and countless real estate cable TV shows, it’s not surprising that some homebuyers consider adopting a ‘do it yourself’ approach as their option of choice when deciding to purchase real estate.

For most people, a real estate professional is an indispensable partner in the home-buying process. While buyers today are more educated about real estate than ever before, all the research in the world can’t match an experienced agent’s understanding of today’s market. Without the pavement pounding and advance scouting an agent does on behalf of their clients, prospective buyers might overpay for a home or lose out on the home of their dreams simply because they do not have the same type of resources that an agent does. An agent is also completely objective and professional when discussing their opinion of the property being considered for purchase unlike a parent, spouse, partner, or best friend.

The buyer’s agent is typically compensated by the seller, which means buyers have nothing to lose and everything to gain by tapping the expertise of an agent. From the moment you select a Sage Real Estate agent until the day you move in, our team will be working for you.
