The Importance of Hiring an Agent in 2022

The Importance of Hiring an Agent in 2022

by The Donner Group on Jun 3, 2022

You hear it everywhere you turn….

“The market should crash soon….”

“Hiring a real estate agent is a waste of your time and money….”

“Buying a home right now is impossible….”

“I could sell my home, but I have nowhere to go….”

While we understand the reason behind a few of these concerns, we want to take the time to counteract the belief that hiring an agent is a waste of your time and how hiring the right agent can make all of these concerns disappear! 

In this post, we want to share with you what a realtor does in 2022 and how they are your biggest asset when buying or selling your home in today’s market! 

We won’t sugarcoat it; buying/selling your home can be intimidating! The most common obstacles for sellers are countering low appraisals, figuring out where to go after the sale, or communicating with buyers. On the other hand, buyers face the struggle of a low inventory market and short windows of opportunity. This is why hiring a full-time agent is crucial!

  1. Real Estate Is a Full-Time Job 

A common misunderstanding is that real estate agents don’t work full-time. Yes, some agents work part-time or, in some instances, “very part-time,” which can lead to issues of not being able to translate the current market to you. We would recommend working with a full-time agent if at all possible! 

Let us ask you a few questions that might make you rethink selling your home without an agent or someone who works in real estate part-time. 

  1. Can you drop everything to show your home to a potential buyer at any given moment?

  2. Do you have the ability to professionally stage, photograph, and market your home to reach more potential buyers?

  3. Do you have experience communicating with agents, lenders, or house inspectors?

If you answered no to any of these questions, selling your home without an agent may not be the best choice. When you work with an agent from the Donner Group, you get a team that will go to work for you and handle all of the little things that will come up when selling your home. 

       2. Access to Larger Networks  

You've heard about listing your home on Zillow, Redfin, Realtor, Craigslist, and MLS, which agents use. Even so, that might not be enough to peak buyer interest. One major benefit of working with a full-time agent is access to larger networks. Your chances of finding an approved buyer increase significantly! 

          3. Understanding of Upcoming Developments

A full-time agent will have a solid understanding of what areas would be on the rise.

A full-time agent will help open your eyes to areas you may not have known existed otherwise! They won’t try to persuade you to live in a particular area but rather give you options that check most of your boxes! 

      4. Telling Their Homebuyer/Seller the Truth

A great agent will take the time to explain to their client that it may be time to stop fighting for a specific property or reevaluate the list of wants vs. needs. Agents must be candid with their clients, so there are no surprises! This can be one of the hardest parts of being an agent, but don’t worry… slow and steady win the race! A great agent is in your corner and will take the necessary steps to get you into the home of your dreams!
