The Importance Of A Real Estate Agent

It is very important to have when in this market but make sure you are dealing with someone who is an expert. 

“While real estate agents are still the most important cog in the transaction, home buyers and sellers increasingly say extra services provided by real estate companies — such as inspections, appraisals and legal and moving company recommendations — make a big difference in how satisfied they are at the end of the day.

“In a tight market, every aspect of service offered will be scrutinized very closely,” said Jim Howland, senior director of the real estate and construction practice at J.D. Power and Associates. “For this reason, it is critical for real estate companies to promote the value that they bring to buyers and sellers, not only in any additional services they offer, but also in their agents and operations.”
