Reasons to use a real estate agent when searching for a home in Marin
For starters, there is no cost to you to have a Marin real estate agent show you homes and / or condos, as well as, negotiate the price when you decide on a home.
Trying to find the perfect home in Marin is no easy task. A realtor / broker will have
all the latest information and can have you on your way, searching for your dream home, in minutes.
One of the great benefits of using an agent or broker is their ability to gather your criteria (what kind of home are you looking for:
# of bedrooms, baths, yard, etc.) and find the listings that best suit your needs. In addition, they can send you
more information, including pictures and when the time comes to see the home, they can set up a showing.
A Marin realtor / broker can also take your
home search criteria and set up an email campaign. Whenever a home becomes available, that meets your
guidelines, you will be emailed with more info on that particular home or condo, plus additional pictures.
Once you have found your home in Marin, it is time to make an offer. Having a realtor, someone on your side, can
be crucial to getting your ideal price, or maybe even better. To help you with this process, your
Marin realtor will first help
with helping you decide on the right offer, by looking at comparable homes in the neighborhood to see what they
have sold for, or are currently selling for. Understanding the value of the home / property is also crucial. This includes the dynamics of the neighborhood, plus
what kind of appreciation, or depreciation is happening in the area. A Marin realtor can help you with all your
concerns, allowing you more time to decide on the right home for you.
Once you have found your dream home and your offer has been accepted, the transaction will now go into what is
called escrow, which means the transaction is pending. At this point, your realtor will make sure that all the
inspections and reports will be handled. Your realtor will also make sure that your paperwork has been reviewed and everything
is in order. By using one of our Marin real estate agents, you can be assured that you have someone who is looking out for
your best interest.
