To hire a professional real estate agent is still not a well-established trend in Nepal. Although real estate is not a new area of interest for investors. Real estate agent in Nepal is one of the major investing vehicle people opt for. Still, we don’t have a culture to hire professional real estate agent. Talking about the global context, we can see that real estate is one of the most popular investing vehicles. We can see a lot of professionals working in the sector. Most of the property transactions are carried out through agents who act as the mediator between buyer and the seller. With a certain commission, they act a catalyst, making the transaction easier, faster and reliable.
However, the concept of hiring professional real estate agents is still new in our country. Although we can find plenty of brokers working as the mediator between the two parties, the process has still not become structured and streamlined. Most people prefer getting involved on their own personal level and cut down the extra commission they are required to pay the agents. Although there’s no doubt that anyone can shop for a house without formally signing on with a real estate agent but unless we want to take up home shopping as a part-time job, a professional agent might be able to match you with the perfect property much faster. Here are 8 reasons why you should hire a professional real estate agent.
Qualified and Experienced
The main difference between professional agents and non-professional brokers is that professional agents are trained, qualified and have knowledge. They have the required training and experience and know how the market works.
Professional agents strictly abide by their work ethics. They know the value of their personal brand and would never do anything that could harm their brand. They are also visionary and know that putting customer’s interest ahead of their own can take them a long way.
For the professional agents, trust and relationships come foremost than their property deals. They are in the industry to help you find the perfect dream house and to ease the customer experience for you. We believe in building a long-term relationship even though the deal could not work out for the first time. They believe in being there whenever you need them.
Professional agents keep it real with both the parties- the buyer and the seller and keep no hidden costs or whatsoever. But this cannot be guaranteed when dealing with the nonprofessionals.
As the saying goes, “You will know the path by actually travelling the path”, these experienced agents know the price of the properties the moment they step in. They can tell you if the properties are underpriced or overpriced and can save you from the bad deals.
They know exactly where to find the type of properties you are looking for. They can also help you get things done efficiently in closing the deal and hence can save you a lot of time for you and make your deals easier and faster.
One of the reasons why we need to hire professional agents is because they have a network of professionals such as contractors, lawyers, masons, plumbers and others who can be easily reached when required. We can hardly expect such facilities when we work with non-professionals
Paperwork could be difficult, time-consuming and chaotic if you are a newbie in this sector. These works can get you into a lot of confusion. Hiring agents who have been working in this sector could guide you in handling the paperwork and ease your way through closing the deal.
Now that more people are being aware of the importance of working with professionals, we can see that a lot of professional real estate agencies rising. Working with these professionals can make your home buying process less frantic and more efficient. You can actually feel the difference!
