The red hot housing marking in Phoenix has drawn not only buyers and sellers but also new real estate agents and brokerages to town. While it may be tempting to work with someone new and fresh to the market, there are far more benefits to working with an experienced local agent.
Anyone can look at a map or Google what the top schools are, but it takes a true local to know what is good on paper, and what’s good in real life. A great local agent will be able to help their buyers find the perfect home by taking what their buyer is looking for and knowing which neighborhood is the right place to look. Further, when it comes to selling your home, a local agent knows what buyers are looking for, beyond the standard checklist items.
This one is huge. Most people assume that when they’re buying or selling a home, the only resource they really need is a trusted real estate agent. But the reality is you’ll likely need much more. Everything from a lender – or multiple lenders to shop for a mortgage – to a handyman, movers, utilities, and or services for the home like a cleaning company or pool maintenance. Having a local agent means skipping the online search and rolling the dice. Relax in the comfort of knowing a local agent is giving you a contact that they have used multiple times, or one that comes with a first-hand review.
While a freshly minted real estate agent may have a shine that is hard to ignore, recognizing the value in an experienced agent is most likely to get you the desired result. In addition to knowing the ins and outs of a real estate transaction, experienced agents have built relationships with other agents. These kinds of contacts can make your transactions go so much smoother! Having familiarity between agents is a huge benefit because it allows for open and easy communication.
