Changing your living arrangements at a time when your relationship is in flux may seem like an overwhelmingly stressful event.

What does a real estate agent do?
A top real estate agent can make an unbiased review of your current living situation and your future home needs. For homeowners, real estate is often sentimental and changes in housing are emotionally charged decisions.
On the selling side, realtor can make recommendations on upgrades and improvements to increase your sales price, often spotting red flags that will hurt you before you get to home inspection. They can provide you with a feasible sales price for listing, by completing an in-depth market analysis of similar properties that have recently sold. Real estate agents also have valuable connections with their industry such as appraisers, home inspectors, and title companies. They can also assist with vetting potential buyers to choose the best buyer.
When it comes to buying a new home, they can help you find the right property, often even before the listing is available online. They will be able to get you the best deal through negotiating expenses that aren’t apparent such as closing costs, warranties, and other fees. Handcrafting your offer to be a great value for you and appealing to the seller can give you the best chance of getting the home you want while reducing the stress of bidding wars.
How is a real estate agent paid?
Realtors are paid through commissions, typically about five to six percent of the sales price of a home. This commission is shared between the listing agent and the buyer’s agent. The bulk of fees usually are deducted from the seller’s profit, with buyers paying fairly little to nothing for the real estate agent representing them.
Top questions to ask a Realtor?
When choosing your ideal realtor it is important to ask questions, assess the level of expertise they bring to the table, and also see if your personalities work well together. A great realtor should understand where you are coming from, be patient with answering questions, and willing to put in the time to help you make the best arrangements possible for your budget and needs.
