Whether you’re buying your first or fifth home, or selling your current home, you want an experienced real estate agent on your side. You may have heard you can sell or buy a home on your own, but if you’re not familiar with the process you may find you are encountering more aggravation and frustration than it is worth. There really is no reason to go it alone when you can have an experienced real estate agent by your side throughout the whole process.
Here are 5 reasons why you need a real estate agent on your side.
1. Your agent is looking out for your best interest. Working with a buyer’s agent when buying a home along the Shore means that they will keep your best interest in mind and be on your side. You can expect them to explain the process to you and negotiate on your behalf. If you’re selling your home you want to have an agent on your side that trust and represent your best interests.
2.An agent’s experience allows them to know what they should be looking for. An agent with experience knows what to look for at different steps throughout the buying and selling process. For instance, if you’re buying a home the agent will be there to help you assess the properties you are touring. If you are selling a home they can help provide insight as to what updates and changes you should make before listing your home on the market.
3.An agent is unbiased. If you’re in the market to buy a home an agent can provide unbiased insight into a home and guide you to the one that’s the right fit for you. If you’re selling a home they can help you position your home to show it’s best and sell quickly in today’s market.

5.Not having an agent could cost you more. If you’re selling a home and trying to do so on your own don’t make the most common mistake, pricing it too high.
