When a family decides it is time to buy a new home, it’s exciting. But, the ways of finding homes for sale have changed so much over the past decade.
As a Southwest Wake County real estate company, my team at Janet Kimberly Properties has seen the many ways people find homes. There are many ways, but our favorite way is to call a local real estate agent.
3 common problems with shopping for homes without a realtor are:
- Waste of Time: It may sound surprising, but there are still families driving around looking for For Sale signs in the yard to find their next home. While this can clearly seem like a waste of time, there are many ways to lose time if a realtor is not helping.
- Missed Expectations: When using software like Trulia and Zillow, the listings are not always accurate. This can lead to a lot of getting hopes up and missing expectations. A realtor will have an up-to-date search database of listings.
- Lack of Expertise: There are so many pieces of knowledge that go into picking the right home. A realtor can help distinguish what features are most important for a specific family and share things that you might be missing.
There are a lot of great reasons to choose a realtor to help show your family new homes. Especially with the low inventory in the Triangle real estate market.
