There is no question that everybody questions the expense of Realtor fees at the end of every real estate transaction, but very rarely reflect on the benefits. The real estate profession is crucial to every real estate transaction. From an inspection perspective, experienced inspectors have witnessed hundreds of occasions in which Buyers were taken advantage of by Sellers or Sellers being taken advantage of by Buyers, all because of inexperience.
In all cases, one or both parties were unable to negotiate the inspection findings or navigate their way through the real estate process. In some cases both parties became too close to each other, or in some instances, one of the parties was not as up-front and honest as they made themselves out to be.
The Seller is so nice that the Buyer agrees to letting the Seller off the hook for repairs noted on the home inspection report! “Penny wise pound foolish” is a very old saying. Don’t get caught paying for these unnecessary mistakes. They can be avoided. This is your life long investment; protect it. Choose a professional real estate agent that will serve your interests from start to finish and will always be available to you throughout the real estate transaction and beyond.
