Buying a Home Guide from Felix Gutierrez

The Power of Having a Real Estate Professional on Your Side

If you’re searching for a home online, you’re not alone; lots of people are doing it. The question is, are you using all your available resources, and are you using them wisely? Here’s why the Internet is a great place to start the homebuying process, and the truth on why it should never be your only go-to source of information and support when it comes to making such an important decision. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the three most popular information sources homebuyers use in the home search are:

• Online Website (93%) • Real Estate Agent (86%) • Mobile/Tablet Website or App (73%)

Clearly, you’re not alone if you’re starting your search online; 93% of homebuyers are right there with you. The even better news: 86% of buyers are also getting information from a real estate agent at the same time. Here are three reasons why working with a real estate pro in addition to your digital search is key: 1. The Full Transaction Is Complex. There’s more to real estate than finding a home online, and it’s a lonely and complicated trek around the web if you don’t have a real estate professional to also help you through the 230 possible steps you’ll face as you navigate through a real estate transaction. Determining your price, submitting an offer, and negotiating successfully are just a few of the key parts of the sequence. You’ll want someone who has been there before to help you through it.
