Houses are moving quick and if you can’t get in right away it could be gone by the time you can get into it if your agent has limited availability. Being able to get into that new listing the second it hits the market could be the key to snatching it up before other buyers have a chance to see it.
Great agents are busy and are usually working with multiple clients. If they are already booked and your dream house becomes available they should have someone that backs them up and can get you in right away.
Multiple offers are extremely common in today’s market. A great agent will know how to structure a solid offer that will put you at the front of the line for consideration.
Your time is precious. Once your agent has a good idea what you are looking for they should be previewing homes for you the second a new listing hits the market instead of running you around to look at every new house that comes on the market.
Great Realtors have a working relationship with one or several great lenders. A great lender can be the key to a smooth transaction and can also help you tremendously in being the winning bid in multiple offer situations.
