5 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Professional

5 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Professional

We are often asked if it makes sense to hire a real estate professional when buying or selling a home. We always emphatically answer – YES!

Here are five reasons why:


An agent will help with all disclosures and paperwork necessary in today’s heavily regulated environment. This helps remove much of the liability a buyer or seller could face.


Navigating today’s real estate and mortgage processes can be like walking through a minefield of challenges. Real estate professionals are well educated in and experienced with the entire sales process.


Negotiating such a large financial transaction can get tricky. Agents act as a ‘buffer’ in negotiations with all parties throughout the entire transaction.


Real estate professionals help buyers and sellers understand the true real estate value of a property in today’s market. This is crucial when setting the price on a listing or on an offer to purchase.


There is a plethora of housing information available today. The challenge is that some information appears to be in direct conflict with other pieces of information. A true real estate professional can simply and effectively explain today’s real estate headlines and decipher what they mean to you.


At KCM, we offer a monthly information service for agents that helps them keep up with current market conditions. When looking for a real estate professional, ask them if they’re a KCM Member and if they’re prepared to educate you on what’s truly happening in real estate today.

    Showed a house to Buyers where the Seller provided all the receipts for all the upgrades they had done to the house since buying it years ago. Nearly $100,000 worth. Every estimate, every warranty, owner’s manual, paid receipt. Second showing, I dad occasion to speak with this FSBO seller in the driveway while waiting for my buyers to arrive. She cheerfully told me they were moving because their kids were, and I quote “deathly allergic to mold”. After some prompting, they THEN provided estimates and receipts for the new carpet, drywall, ceiling tile, mold testing and remediation. It was sort of like “disclosing”.
