Selling Your House? A Brampton Realtor Can Help
It is a fact. More than 8 out of 10 real estate transactions occur with the help of a Brampton realtor or broker and there is a good reason for that statistic. A real estate professional, especially a local one, is going to be intimately familiar with the home buying and selling process. They are experienced in what it takes to market a home, as well as what you need to successfully negotiate a purchase. More importantly, it is their full-time occupation, allow you to live your life while they handle all of the particulars.

One of the most valuable benefits of working with a local Brampton realtor is their help with understanding how much you can afford for a new home or how much your home is worth, and while this seems like it should be general to all agents, understanding the local real estate market is what sets apart a local agent and an out of town one. It is important to be familiarized with the market situation in your area or the area you are looking to purchase in because situations are different throughout the GTA.
Local agents get and understand the most up-to-date property listings and comparisons. There are dozens of resources to search for homes, but the most reliable and efficient resource is the MLS system. And while all agents do have access to the system a local agent will be getting updates in your area constantly making their information extremely beneficial to any of your real estate transactions.
An experienced local real estate agent is better at finding homes and qualified buyers for you. Sure, any real estate agent can help you browse home listings and set up showings for you, but an experienced agent has built connections and know-how over the years that an out of town agent just can’t compete with. They will also be familiar with the tools of the trade – from online listing sites to all the paperwork it takes to simply make an offer on a home. In building these connections and large network of people, they can easily find you the perfect home or a qualified buyer for your home.
Local agents are experts at pricing. Home pricing is much an art as a science. A local and experienced agent doesn’t rely solely on comparable home sales. They can rely on their experience with the area to judge whether a home is over or underpriced. They know exactly how to price your home based on the surroundings and past experiences in your area, making sure you get exactly what you deserve when it comes to your transaction.
Experienced agents are master negotiators. You can rely on their experience to know what items to stick to in a negotiation and which items really aren’t that important.
The experience in your local area just speaks for itself. Just like anything in life, when you are hiring someone, you want someone who is experienced and knows what they are doing. You wouldn’t hire an expert plumber to repair a hole in your wall. While an out of town real estate agent may know the ins and outs of the market where they are from, it could be extremely different from where you live. You need to find someone who can provide you the best possible service, give you the best information and help make this transaction as stress-free as possible.
