From For Sale To Sold Your Wish List Is Our Checklist
From for Sale to Sold: Your Wish List Is Our Checklist
Most people have an idea of what their dream home would look like (and if you need inspiration, we've created several Pinterest boards). You can't always get everything you want in a home – but how do you make sure your new home will come close? Work with an experienced professional – like a RE/MAX agent. Among other things that make your home hunt successful, RE/MAX agents know things like:
1. The neighborhood
Your agent will have the inside scoop on the neighborhoods you're looking at, from walkability to upcoming development projects that may affect the value of your home. They'll help you put the neighborhood's statistics into perspective so you can make an informed decision.
2. How to maximize your money
With in-depth knowledge of the market and what you're looking for, your agent can help you get the most house for your money. When home shopping on a budget, they can suggest which fixer uppers can be easily (and inexpensively) updated, and which ones might be a money pit.
3. How to save time
Your agent can do much of the time-consuming legwork of house hunting for you, so you don't waste time sorting through properties that ultimately aren't a good fit.
4. How to negotiate
As professional negotiators, agents spend years honing their skills. They know how to read the situation and how – and when – to employ the right tactics to make sure you get a fair deal.
If you're looking to buy a home, let the knowledge and experience of a seasoned RE/MAX agent help guide you through the process. Find an agent on www.remax.com.
