Real Estate Expert Advisors vs. Real Estate Agents
When buying or selling a home, you're embarking on one of the largest transactions you will ever have to make. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake! When selling, marketing your home for 1% LESS really averages out to a $3,000+ LOSS depending on the worth of your home. When buying a home, 1% more could mean you pay an EXTRA $3,000+. How do you make sure that you don't lose out on thousands of dollars?
Well, you would want somebody with decades of experience and is considered an expert. You would also want somebody with a lot of great reviews, has a great track record, and who's not alone. More rather, they have an amazing team behind them.
Would you want somebody who is a complete lone-wolf, and has only been in the business for a few years?
When given the choice, I think most everybody would pick the expert.
WHAT WILL AN EXPERT ADVISOR ACCOMPLISH?
- An Expert Advisor is a highly skilled real estate expert.
We close 100+ homes a year as an effective real estate team of Home Selling / Buying Advisors. We are on the pulse of all local market activity and have intricate knowledge of active and past inventory. We will keep you informed and will be by your side every step of the way.
- An Expert Advisor is a marketing genius.
We spend hundreds of thousands per year on marketing and advertising our listings to a very select niche of the market, ensuring your home sells quicker, and for top dollar to the right buyer. We will cast the right net to the right people.
- An Expert Advisor is a skilled negotiator.
Dealing with real estate requires a lot of negotiation. We will bring a confidence and calm demeanor at offer time, which is when you need it most. We will also guide you through the negotiation process and help you understand what to include, what to give up, and most importantly when to walk away if reasonable terms cannot be reached
- An Expert Advisor will make things easy.
We dot the i’s, cross the t’s, and handle everything in between. We will recommend reputable service professionals that you might need, handle all of the paperwork, and do any other heavy lifting you will need throughout the process.
WHAT WILL THE AVERAGE AGENT ACCOMPLISH?
- The Average Real Estate Agent sells 5 homes a year.
Anybody with 120 hours of free time can get a real estate license. In perspective, it takes 225 hours to become a licensed beautician. Your home is probably one of your biggest assets. You would want a qualified professional to handle such a large sale.
- The Average Real Estate Agent doesn’t know marketing all too well.
An average agent only spends about $1,200 per year on marketing and advertising your home to the general marketplace, hoping that anybody looking for a home will buy it.
- The Average Real Estate Agent is an OK negotiator.
Negotiating requires expertise and skill. Being OK at it won't make the cut when it comes down to the nitty gritty of real estate negotiation. Like mentioned earlier, there are thousands of dollars at stake. You would want the best of the best to haggle and fight and compromise at just the right times.
- 89% of homes are not sold for what they were originally listed for.
Basically, under an agent’s guidance, you might not get the top dollar for your home.
The National Association of Expert Advisors published a video about this entire concept. You can see it here, or down below.
In essence, then: You'll be better off if you trust your largest asset to an expert in the field of real estate. Whether you're buying a new home, or selling your current one.
