We are all short on time these days, and never does that become more apparent than when trying to buy or sell Santa Cruz real estate. Deciphering the ins and outs of real estate can seem like a full-time job itself. That’s why many people decide to hire a real estate agent to guide them.
• A good real estate agent must have a working knowledge of local property values to make sure you get the most for your money. Having an agent working for you full-time to find the Santa Cruz real estate that you’ve been dreaming of can cut out a lot of hours of research and headaches. A qualified real estate agent will simplify the search for the right property and can direct you to financing as well.
• If you’re looking to sell your property, your agent will help you determine best price to put on your home. They’ll be able to help you get the most for your property in the shortest amount of time. Your agent will set up showings for your property and help sort through which offer to accept.
• When it comes time to make an offer to buy Santa Cruz real estate, your agent will handle the contract negotiations and the paperwork. Your real estate agent will be right there with you all the way through the loan closing. They will assist in the title paperwork that is required for each real estate transaction.
A real estate agent can also be a REALTOR®; this means they are a member of the National Association of REALTORS®. Each member is required to follow a strictly enforced code of ethics. The REALTOR® promises to put the well-being of the person they're hired by ahead of his or her own. They must tell you if they or any family members will benefit from any part of the transaction.
