You don’t just need a Real Estate Agent.
You need a Real Estate Agent who listens to your needs, one who knows the SA Property market, and one who will make the process easy and beneficial to you. I have been helping people make the most of their Property investments in the Roodepoort & Surrounding areas for over 9 years, and I would like to do the same for you.
I know my way around the industry and how to get you the most out of your investment.
Here are a view reasons why you should let me help you through the process of buying or selling a home:
I make sure the proper information is uploaded correctly within 24 hours to all the property portals in South Africa.
I cannot tell you how many times I have seen false information floating around the real estate industry. It’s important that your Listing Agent has a full grasp of what information is important to include in the property portals for your property that will catch the most searches on the internet. The information must be accurate and all-encompassing to attract the most buyers in the real estate market.
Pricing Your Property Correctly.
The most important thing you can do in selling your property is to list it at the most compelling price you can. Good appraisers say “A home is worth whatever a buyer is willing to pay”. If you price your home too high, it will keep many buyers from taking a look at it or it may not even fall within their search criteria. The longer your house sits on the market, the more YOU are paying. A full-time Estate Agent like me will use their years of experience with the local market to make a buyer compelled to step inside and take a look.
Most home purchases include the buyer acquiring a home loan through a bank, and as a result, the bank will require a accurate valuation (appraisal). If there’s not enough value in the property for the purchase amount stated in the Offer to purchase (contract) then the deal will likely fall through unless the seller is willing to come down to meet the valuation price.
Pricing the property right the first time saves resources and reaches more qualified buyers. My listings sell at an average of 97% of their original listing price while numerous other agents average is around 75% – 85%. This means that on average, I sell homes for more, with less home valuation (appraisal) issues.
Keeping the Deal Together.
There can be so many pitfalls during the time you negotiate an offer, accept the offer, navigate through the various inspections and help facilitate the lending process. These issues are arguably the most important reason for having a professional estate agent that you can trust by your side.
There are so many moving parts to transactions these days from navigating through contracts to having to communicate with Bond Originators (mortgage professionals) to help keep deals together. Many estate agents neglect to properly inform their clients of the fact that no home is perfect. Even brand-new homes can have issues! As a listing agent, it’s important to be prepared to see these issues in advance, be proactive in addressing them, deal with the emotions of buyers and sellers, therefore keeping the deal together. This is one of my strengths as a experienced real estate agent with RE/MAX Masters.
When you are serious about entering the real estate market, your choices are crucial.
