What is the advantage to working with a real estate team rather than a single agent? Buying and selling real estate has become a complicated process in today’s constantly changing market place. Getting through the sales process can feel overwhelming with all the steps needed before getting to the closing table. Having a qualified, seasoned realtor(s) to give you sound honest advice will be key to your success. For buyers there is much to think about beyond finding the right house. Is this the right community and neighborhood for the life style I want? Does my agent know the inventory so they know a good value? What kind of loan should I go for? Does my agent know about all the issues that can surface with home inspections and are they experienced in negotiating reasonable solutions for structural issues, septic and well concerns, open ended permits, lead paint, radon, mold, asbestos, oil tanks etc? For sellers looking for the right agent(s), who is the right choice? Will my agent use a professional photographer, create good advertising, use the new marketing tools of social media including videos, YouTube, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and more? What about email marketing, internet marketing, open houses, staging, international marketing, etc? Does my agent have sharp negotiating skills and astute business sense? For high end homeowners does my agent have experience marketing luxury homes? And most importantly, does my agent have my best interests at heart? Who to trust? There is much to consider. There are many reasons to go with a team in today’s demanding market. It is impossible for a single agent to know all the inventory in multiple towns, create and maintain a marketing plan for active listings, be knowledgeable and up to date on all the issues that can come up in a transaction and maintain the necessary personal relationship that each client deserves. One distinct advantage of working with a team is that each team member has a unique sphere of influence that when combined creates a strong pool of valuable information available for each client. The combined efforts of team support, efficient marketing and transaction management, along with collective knowledge and experience can make the difference in reaching the closing table. For sellers, each team member knows the inventory and are available to show or care for the property. For buyers, the combined market acumen of the team members can help the buyer make informed decisions when thinking about a property, a community or negotiating a sale.
