Realtors Provide Important Services to Their Clients
Selling your Nevada home this summer might be a little more interesting as buyers, sellers, and real estate agents all navigate a rather strange situation. Unusually wet weather this spring in an otherwise very dry location lead to the grass hopper migration, which is actually so pervasive that in some locations the swarms of leaping bugs are showing up on radar. All hoppiness aside, however, whether you are dealing with an unusual weather related bug event or not, it is often in your best interest to work with a real estate agent to make sure that you get the best results.
In other parts of the country, it is also important that you are working with a realtor who can help you buy a new home that fits your list of wants, as well as offer advice about home loans and mortgages. And while the realtor is often separate from the lending agent, having one more person in your corner can be an advantage. In fact, after the home is purchased there may still be a time when the advice of a realtor may help you untangle the complications that can occur with a lending institution or mortgage company. Consider this scenario:
This is the sixth lunch hour in two months you have spent on the phone with the mortgage company because they continue to take two mortgage payments a month and they cannot figure out how to do a refund. If you could easily afford to double your mortgage, you guarantee you would not still have pink formica countertops in the kitchen.
Short of changing banks or shutting down that account, you are not sure what to do. You fear, however, that you will not be able to get the same current interest rate, but you also cannot afford to continue to make these double payments. You would love to make no more payments to them until all the extra payments have brought you even, but you fear breaking your end of the contract.
Home Being and Selling Is Not for the Faint of Heart
Whether you are selling your Nevada home where you have lived for the last three decades or you are considering a new home purchase in another part of the country, it is important to realize that 80% of residential growth will be in suburban communities over the next decade. This, of course, is just one of the many trends that will determine the market for both buyers and sellers. And while a 2017 National Association of Realtors report indicated that 56% of buyers 36 years old and younger found their homes online, the final sales process is often more advantageous. Grasshoppers or not, and whether you are selling your Nevada home and moving across country, a realtor is a definite advantage for many buyers and sellers.
