Trust us: the home-buying and -selling process can be messy. There’s a lot to consider and prepare for before you can sign any paperwork. If you enter into the housing market unprepared and unaware of how it works, you could find yourself in much trickier situation than you had originally anticipated. Because of this, it’s important to do your research, and it’s important to have a licensed realtor at your side who can walk you through the home-buying and -selling process from start to finish.
So, is it a bad idea to buy a home without the help of a realtor?
The short answer is this:
Below are just a few of the problems you may bump into when trying to buy a home without the help of a licensed realtor.
We’ve seen too many inexperienced home-buyers and -sellers try to tackle the housing marketing with little to no experience. While many people believe that it’s doable, the realty is this:
Technically, it is doable, but it’s extremely difficult and stressful if you don’t understand how the housing market works!
The housing market can be extremely confusing, and without the help of a licensed realtor, you’ll have access to a very limited amount of listings. Don’t dive into the housing market without first understand how it operates, how it behaves, and how you can stay afloat amidst those dramatic market fluxes. Otherwise, you could find yourself getting roped into a terrible deal!
Not only will this require a lot of phone calls and free time, but it will also require a lot of experience in dealing with listing agents. When you’re speaking with a listing agent on your own, you’ll notice that the listing agent will try to get you to make an offer before you’ve even had a chance to tour the house! In fact, without the help of a realtor, it’s next to impossible to tour a home! That means you could end up being pressured into buying a home before you’ve even stepped foot in it!
