Advantages Of Working With An Agent

THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH A REALTOR® LIKE ROBERT SMITH

THE ADVANTAGES of working with only one REALTOR® include:

  • The REALTOR® becomes familiar with your family’s needs.
  • You develop better rapport and communication when working towards your goal with only one REALTOR®.
  • The REALTOR® is more committed to you because you return that commitment. You avoid any uncomfortable situation arising from agent conflict

FAST FACTS ABOUT REALTORS REALTOR®

REALTOR® A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate agent and a member of the National Association of REALTORS, ® a real estate trade association. REALTORS® also belong to their state and local Boards of REALTORS®. They have a wealth of resources at their disposal, including the Multiple Listing Service and continuing education. All association members agree to abide by a 17-article Code of Ethics and strive for the height of professionalism. 

REAL ESTATE AGENT A real estate agent is licensed by the state to represent parties in the transfer of property. Every REALTOR® is a real estate agent, but not every real estate agent is a professional REALTOR®.

LISTING AGENT A listing agent forms a legal relationship with the homeowner to sell the property and places the property in the Multiple Listing Service.

BUYER’S AGENT A buyer’s agent or buyer broker is an agent hired by the buyer. Generally, the buyer broker is paid from the commission fee agreed to by the seller.

MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE (MLS) The MLS is a database of properties listed for sale by REALTORS® who are members of the local Board of REALTORS®. Information on an MLS property is available to thousands of REALTORS®

EXCERPT FROM PREAMBLE TO THE REALTOR’S® CODE OF ETHICS: The term REALTOR® has come to connote competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No inducement of profit and no instruction from clients ever can justify departure from this ideal. In the interpretation of this obligation, REALTORS® can take no safer guide than that which has been handed down through the centuries, embodied in the Golden Rule: “Whatsoever ye would that others should do to you, do ye even so to them.”

BENEFITS FROM A PROFESSIONAL REALTOR®

Before you make the decision to try to sell your home alone, consider the benefits a REALTOR® can provide that you may not be aware of:

  • Understands market conditions and has access to information not available to the average homeowner.
  • Can advertise effectively for the best results.
  • Knows how to price your home realistically, to give you the highest price possible within your time frame.
  • Is experienced in creating demand for homes and how to show them to advantage.
  • Knows how to screen potential buyers and eliminate those who can’t qualify or are looking for bargain-basement prices.
  • Knows how to go toe-to-toe in negotiations.
  • Is always “on-call,” answering the phone at all hours, and showing homes evenings and weekends.
  • Can remain objective when presenting offers and counter-offers on your behalf.
  • Maintains errors-and-omissions insurance.
  • Will listen to your needs, respect your opinions and allow you to make your own decisions.
  • Can help protect your rights, particularly important with the increasingly complicated real estate laws and regulations.
  • Is experienced with resolving problems to facilitate a successful closing on your home.

Only you can determine whether you should attempt to sell your home—probably your largest investment—all alone. Talk with Robert Smith before you decide. You may find working with a professional is a lot less expensive and much more beneficial than you ever imagined!

FOR SALE BY OWNER

Many people believe they can save a considerable amount of money by selling their homes themselves. It may seem like a good idea at the time, but while you may be willing to take on the task, are you qualified? The following are some questions to help you realistically assess what’s involved:

  • Do you have the knowledge, patience, and sales skill needed to sell your home?
  • If your buyer is aggressive, can you negotiate a successful outcome for yourself?
  • Do you know how to determine the current market value of your home?
  • Are you aware of conditions in the marketplace today that affect value and length of time to sell?
  • Do you know how to determine whether or not a buyer can qualify for a loan?
  • Are you concerned about having strangers walking through your home?
  • Are you familiar enough with real estate regulations to prepare a binding sales contract? Counter-offers? 
  • Are you aware that every time you leave your home, you are taking it off the market until you return? 
  • Do you need to hire a real estate attorney? If so, do you know what the cost will be and how much liability they will assume in the transaction? 
  • Do you know how to advertise effectively and what the costs will be?
  • Are you aware that prospective buyers and bargain hunters will expect you to lower your cost because there’s no REALTOR® involved? 
  • Do you understand the various types of loans buyers may choose and the advantages and disadvantages for the seller?
  • Are you prepared to give up your evenings and weekends to show your home to potential buyers and “just-looking” time wasters?

What's Your Dream Home?

 

Whether you are a first time home buyer or not, buying a home can be both exciting and stressful.  Robert Smith understands. One thing that is a must in a realtor is someone who works hard, is up-front, and helps you stay educated throughout the entire home buying process.  Robert is both proactive and experienced. Robert offers guidance and truly listens to your needs when it comes to your future home. While it’s easy to look on your own in today’s market, Robert works hard to find homes that meet your expectations and needs that may not be available on most public searches.

Once ready to make an offer, Robert will advise you on the process and how to structure your offer to make sure you get the best possible price. He monitors each step while informing you of any changes.  Unlike many who treat the home-buying process as a passive endeavor, Robert seeks to ensure your experience is positive with the outcome of you being handed the keys to your dream home.

We all have a dream home. For some potential buyers it might be a home with a beautiful patio and view.  A home that provides that sacred space where they can spend long relaxing nights with friends and family. Other buyers may long to gaze over the Central Oregon Cascades and daily admire the beauty of their natural surroundings. No matter what dream you’re looking for, Robert is here to introduce you to that dream. 

Don't settle on impossibility. Settle on possibilities and dreaming big by working with an experienced and proactive agent who wants to see that dream come true. Get in touch with Robert today and let him show you what the northwest real estate market has to offer.

HOW IS ROBERT DIFFERENT?

For his buyers, it’s Robert’s connections and networking that allow him to find just the right properties based on your specifications. Robert tends to spend a great deal of time searching and negotiating on your behalf in order to ensure you have the best possible experience while searching for your new dream home or property.

 
Helping you create the right offer on the right property is his top priority. Robert doesn’t settle for being second best when it comes to getting your offer in on a home. After all, it comes down to helping you find your dream home not just a house.

A Note From Robert:

Robert Smith 2018 Agent Photo.jpg

Any time you are searching for a new home you want it to be a positive experience. I believe in helping you find the right home within your parameters. When I work with any home buyer, I take time to establish your basic requirements for your new home, needs, neighborhood, and financing. I will walk you through the financing portion of the home purchase if you don’t already have that in place. Part of working with you involves ensuring you have the most up-to-date information on the market and helping you negotiate the best possible outcome. I work to protect your interests throughout the transaction and handle all the home negotiating (e.g. price, home inspection, repair, etc.) aspects for you as you move through the home purchasing process.
