Whether you are selling your house or buying a home, the property market is not an industry one should tackle without professional assistance. This is because without insider know-how and specialist knowledge, it is easy to make bad deals that lead to costly mistakes. In the end, you want the best deal for your money, and doing so with the right help is far more streamlined. Below, we take a look at the five benefits of utilising the skill set of professional real estate agents and how they will simplify your buying, renting, or selling process.


  1. Unparalleled knowledge of the market


It is not hard to go online and find listings of properties for sale, and it certainly isn’t difficult to arrange a viewing or sign a contract – but there is so much more to the process from which you can benefit. Experienced and highly trained real estate agents know the market well, and they can give you insight into aspects you have never considered. Not only are they able to recognise if a property is priced right, but they closely watch area trends and values, and they understand what to invest in, and where.


  1. They spot potential pitfalls quickly


Real estate agents have a trained eye when it comes to spotting the cracks – real and figurative. Working with a realtor to find a home, or sell yours, means that you can expect honest feedback about the state of the property and what problems may arise with it in future. Not only this, but many have a large network of contacts when it comes to home inspectors and other industry experts with whom you can partner.


  1. They work by a strict code of ethics


Real estate agents must work according to a code of ethics, as well as within the bounds of the law. In South Africa, all real estate agents must be registered with the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB), which regulates and promotes a set code of conduct for anyone in the profession. This means that you can rely on anyone registered with the EAAB to keep procedures above board and ensure the contract or lease you sign is legal.


  1. Better access to suitable homes


There are plenty of off-market properties that do not make it onto mainstream listing sites, and the only way to gain access to these exclusive homes is through estate agents. This will help to broaden your search, or as a seller, target only certain kinds of buyers. It is this kind of bespoke service that makes working with a professional worth it.


  1. Forget about the hassle


People are often surprised at the amount of paperwork involved in buying or selling a home. Dealing with these documents – and the legal jargon they contain – is not just stressful and tiresome, but it leaves room for some missteps. While working with someone with experience in the field, there is less of a chance that you will miss something important or agree to something you should not. This takes a lot of pressure off your shoulders, freeing up your time for the next phase of your life.
