Why Should I use a Licensed Real Estate Agent?
From Realtor.com: In 2012, a full 89 percent of buyers used a real estate agent, and so did 88 percent of sellers. The reason for this is clear. The breadth of real estate knowledge a licensed agent can provide simply cannot be replicated. The knowledge of the area in which you are looking to buy/sell a home can prove invaluable throughout the process. Further, Realtors have access to resources that facilitate an easy search for a home or a buyer, and make the purchasing/selling process painless. Last, a Real Estate Agent comes armed with a brokerage behind him/her. That means an advertising and marketing budget for sellers, buyers and sellers already on hand, and years of expertise available at a moment’s notice. The choice is clear. Using a licensed agent is the safe, smart decision.
