Buying and selling real estate in La Quinta, CA can involve one of the largest financial investments most people experience in a lifetime. Considering the small upside cost and large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a La Quinta, CA real estate transaction without the professional assistance of a La Quinta REALTOR®.
But if you're still not convinced of the value of a La Quinta REALTOR®, here are some additional ways they can improve the buying and selling process:
Community knowledge. A La Quinta REALTOR® has a better understanding of what buyers can get for their money and for what sellers can get for their property in the neighborhoods they want to buy into or sell from.
Establishing the right price. One of the first things a La Quinta real estate agent would present to a seller is a comparative market analysis (CMA) or "sales comps". The CMA is based on current market trends and recent sales in a given area and is the basis for the agent's recommended asking price. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, sellers who use a real estate agent receive on average 20 percent more for their homes than those who sell their homes on their own.
Marketing expertise. Along with a CMA, a La Quinta REALTOR® will typically present sellers with a marketing plan that details what he or she will do to sell their home. This may include coordinating open houses, writing and placing ads in various media, printing and distributing brochures and showing your house to potential buyers. Agents also have exclusive access to two resources that are often critical to selling a home: other agents and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Brad's attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the real estate buying and selling process gives his clients a significant advantage when buying or selling their home.
The MLS and REALTOR® contacts. The MLS, offers a database of all La Quinta homes for sale by local real estate agents. Once a home is listed, information about it can be accessed by all the real estate agents in La Quinta and matched to buyers: in effect, the seller's home is being sold by not one agent, but by hundreds. A study by the National Association of REALTORS® revealed that 82 percent of homes are sold through an agent's contacts.
Transactional paperwork expertise. La Quinta REALTORS® can help draft contracts and should know the information that must be included in transaction documents. They can also advise buyers and sellers on what stipulations should be made in contracts.
Negotiation and closing assistance. A La Quinta real estate agent can provide advice to both buyers and sellers about whether to accept or modify an offer or counter offer. Once an offer has been accepted, the La Quinta REALTOR® will assist with the escrow process and may coordinate a home inspection, assist with financing, order a title search, as well as ensure that all repairs have been made and stipulations in the contract have been performed.
