Is there any reason to use a local Realtor when buying
or selling Wenatchee real estate?
I've heard it and you probably have to. Why go with a professional or
" I'm just going to use my cousin's best friend. She just started in the
business and needs help. She lives a couple counties over but is more than
willing to drive."
While this may be charitable on your part, you are missing the bigger
Does it really matter if whom you use when buying or selling real
I'm not going to tell you whom to use but I will tell you the benefits of
using a local Wenatchee Realtor to sell your home rather than
someone that may not know the area or the market.
When you're selling your home, not knowing the current
market may have the agent telling you a different price than you really should
be selling for. This can work both ways in selling too high or selling too low.
If the agent doesn't know the market, down to the neighborhood, and they price
the home too high you may end up sitting on the property for months chasing the
market down farther and farther. If the Wenatchee
property is priced too low you may get a quick sale but lose out on
the profit you could have made if sold at the right price.
Using a local Realtor can make all the difference in world
when selling. Only those agent and Realtor that know the city, neighborhood and
community markets can really help stage and list to appeal to those buyers. If
the agent doesn't know the buyers, they can't market as well to them. Not every
market is the same and you may find buyers in certain areas that expect more out
a home. Using a local Wenatchee Realtor can not only save you
time but possibly money as well.
What about buying? Does it really matter whom you use to buy
your home? Well, consider it in the same fashion as selling. If the agent
doesn't know the market trends you can end up paying much more for a home that's
really worth less in a particular neighborhood. Without knowing the market
well enough, an agent can cheat their buyer out of the best deal or even the
best home by not knowing specific communities.
So while it's nice to give a new agent a chance or even a relative, you must
consider that you are dealing with thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of
dollars here. It just doesn't make sense to trust your home, your investment or
your future to anyone other than a local, seasoned professional.
