The housing marketing is heating up which translates to plenty of competition and bidding wars on the dream house your potential prospects just found. What will be your prospect’s strategy? Having a professional negotiator, in the form of a real estate agent, will be the best.
When real estate agents are not selling or buying a home, their job is to keep up to date with the industry and build relationships. So for every question they don’t know, they will know someone who knows. This will be an enormous help in the process of buying or selling a home. Your prospects should use your network. It will most likely consist of everyone from home inspectors to mortgage brokers.
