Is it worth dealing with an estate agent?

  • Категория: News

Real estate agencies see no decline in customers despite commission fees and the existence of the Internet, so why do people prefer selling or buying property through intermediaries?

On the one hand, sellers can post an ad on the Internet themselves. On the other hand, buyers can browse the web or drive around the city in search of a perfect home. Nevertheless, over 80% of deals are conducted through a real estate agent, according to a US study. Moreover, about 70% of those surveyed say they would call the intermediaries again.

A real estate agent helps a seller set the real market price or advises on investing money into renovations in order to get a higher bid; a professional already has a bunch of potential buyers that can afford your property for sure, so you can close the deal more quickly. One can save a lot of time if he/she delegates showing the house to numerous curious visitors. According to statistics, an agent sells a home in 8 weeks on average.

Buyers also benefit from dealing with a qualified intermediary. If your income is calculated in hourly wages than you might lose more money while browsing the Internet or riding circles around the neighborhood looking for a decent apartment rather than paying a commission to an agent instead. If you are interested in a property abroad than a real estate agency will guaranty authentic photos and ensure a safe deal, and a fair price. It is worth mentioning that conditions vary in different countries. For example, in the USA, Canada, and most European counties a vendor pays a commission fee. Meanwhile, in some CIS countries, it is the purchaser who pays for the services of intermediaries.

Whether you choose services of an agency or not, you should rather weigh all options before making such a serious financial decision.
