If you're thinking about buying or selling a home, it can pay to have a professional on your side. While it may seem pretty straightforward, the process isn't as simple as many assume. Buying or selling a home is a considerable financial undertaking. Realtors® are members of the NAR (National Association of Realtors®) and adhere to its strict Code of Ethics. It's helpful to understand what a professional Realtor® does and why you might want to hire one. 

In today's housing market, you can expect lots of competition, all-cash offers, cutthroat tactics, and bidding wars. Your savvy professional negotiator can help seal the best deal for you. Your Realtor® will draw up a contract that allows enough flexibility for inspections, contingencies, or anything else on your must-have list.

The Realtors® of Mike Thomas Associates are well-connected in Northeast Indiana and make it their mission to know just about everyone who can help with the process of buying and selling a home. If you're looking for a home inspector, mortgage broker, home stager, or a whole host of other professional services, your Realtor® can help you find what you need.

Time is a precious commodity. Selling a home requires a substantial time commitment that most people simply don't have. Your Realtor® possesses the resources and skill to professionally market your home via home listing websites, social media, video walk-throughs, professional photographs, flyers, and open houses. They work tirelessly to ensure that you feel at ease with every aspect of the home buying or selling experience.

Your real estate agent can help you quickly achieve your goals in a way that works for you and your needs.

The world of real estate has its own language full of acronyms and jargon that your Realtor® is trained to speak fluently. Their full-time job is to act in their client's best interest as a liaison between buyers and sellers.

When hired by homebuyers, they have easy access to all properties listed by other agents. Occasionally, properties are available but not actively advertised. Our Realtors® know the ins and outs of every neighborhood and can direct you toward homes in your price range that you may have missed.

A Realtor® can also use real-time comparables to price your home for the current market appropriately. Too often, without the help of a professional, homes are listed at the wrong price and sit on the market, making it seem like there is something undesirable about the property when in reality it is simply incorrectly priced for the size or location. 

Guiding you through this journey isn't a responsibility that the Realtors® of Mike Thomas Associates take lightly. Give us a call today to find out how we can serve you.
