Why Hire a Realtor
Knowledge and experience are valuable commodities in every trade. Need surgery? You’re going to want a doctor, and that doctor will have spent a minimum of eleven years educating and training themselves to do what you need.

In legal trouble? Try a lawyer, who gave up seven to eight years for their title. And when it comes to car repair, home building, or even our appearance, we understand we need people with a specific set of skills for the job at hand. Real estate is no different.
Do you know how much value updated appliances add to your home? What about that HVAC you put in a year ago? Or can you figure out the going rate for an acre of land in your area? A good Realtor can.

Realtors become experts in their local market by learning values for land and commodities and using tools inaccessible to the public. They have also studied Texas law so they can help you navigate the legalities of negotiating an offer, getting a loan, and transferring title. There is nothing simple about buying and selling a house.
Do you need your offer to depend on the sale of your old home? Or determine which maintenance issues are most crucial to selling your home? Then you need a Realtor.
Of course, all the know-how in the world isn’t worth much if you haven’t used it. A good real estate agent will have seen scenarios so strange a fiction author couldn’t make them up. The bizarre is a given in this business, and while it’s stressful for agents, this fact of real estate is great for clients because almost nothing can surprise or stump an experienced Realtor.
A real estate agent is also beneficial for decisions you may have never faced. Most of us look to our past for help with big decisions, but if you’ve never purchased or sold your home before, you won’t have any experience to lean on.
