Do you need a Realtor to buy a house?
This is a question that oftentimes comes to mind. The quick answer: Yes, you do need an agent, but only if they're a great one.
3 recent open house visitors told me that they do NOT need a real estate agent and the reasons they gave were interesting:
(1) I already know the values in the neighborhood
(2) I want to save money
(3) Realtors are a pain in the ass
These reasons were so interesting that I thought they deserved a video response. Their reasons are not exactly right, but they're also not exactly wrong, either.
This video addresses how a great agent can provide value well in excess of the brokerage fee that they collect. For more information, please contact me!
