#1: Real estate agents have significant market knowledge.
Because local, southwest Florida-based agents have access to the most recent market data in the area, we agents are able to give you advice on realistic purchase and listing prices that you simply can’t find anywhere else. I can’t tell you how many times clients have come to us with data from Zillow or Trulia only to be pleasantly surprised by the difference between these automated tools and the reality of what they can expect to pay for a home (or sell their existing home for). This kind of market knowledge is only garnered through years of experience in each of the communities and cities throughout Southwest Florida.
Plus, we can provide you with a report of comparable homes for sale and historic market data that’s completely unique to your needs that will help ensure that you’re getting the most for your dollar (or most for your listing).
#2: Real estate agents will negotiate for you.
One of the most difficult tasks in buying or selling a home is handling the negotiations. Luxury Southwest Florida real estate agents can help get a great deal that has all of your best interests in mind. We’ve been negotiating for years, and understand all of the complexities, business, money and personal dynamics that go into a home listing or home purchase and will represent you fully and negotiate on your behalf for the absolute best deal.
#3: We will coordinate showings.
One of the issues with selling your home as a DYI home seller is simply coordinating showing. This alone often pays for an agent many times over in peace of mind. A great agent will coordinate with your schedule, on your terms, what works for you as far as showing your home – as well as assisting you in scheduling viewings of homes you’re interested in.
#4: Whether you’re buying or selling, we’ll do all of the hard work for you.
When selling your home, it is almost impossible to coordinate showings and open houses with your busy life schedule. Thankfully, luxury real estate agents of southwest Florida will be there for you when a last minute showing arises and you find yourself unavailable.
#5: Southwest Florida agents offer creative ways to find and sell.
Similar to our unique understanding of the market – we also know the best places to market and find your ideal buyer. We custom tailor our marketing for each home we list – or our hunt for homes for each client we’re looking to place in a home to our clients’ unique needs. A $200,000 buyer is very different than a $2,000,000 buyer – and as such needs different targeting and marketing.
When looking for a new home, local luxury real estate agents will always have exclusive insight on the latest listings, sometimes even before anyone else. Through established relationships, they are able to rapidly assess the buyer and seller situation to ensure you get the best deal possible! The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts.
#6: Luxury realtors know how to sell homes.
In a world full of technology, prospective buyers expect nothing less than professional photos and videos to accompany listings. Luxury realtors can handle all staging and marketing and even screen candidates before a showing.
#7: We will handle inspections.
If you are expecting to buy a new home in Southwest Florida, you can expect inspectors to find things that need to be fixed before closing. Luxury Real Estate agents can negotiate details with inspectors to ensure you aren’t investing in a disaster.
#8: Real estate agents connect you with trusted businesses.
If you are going to buy or sell a home, you may to need to hire additional professionals to conduct maintenance and repairs. We have a network of handy-men, plumbers, electricians and others that will be your resource should you find a great deal – or the home of your dreams – and it needs modest repairs.
