As a Real Estate Professional in the Collin County area I get asked this question all the time. Why should I use a Real Estate Professional?
1. What do you do with all this paperwork?
I am an expert and can
guide you through the stacks of paperwork necessary to make your dream a
reality. I keep track of all the time lines and make sure everything gets done . 2. Ok, so you found your dream house, now what?
There are over 200 possible actions that need to take place during
every successful real estate transaction. Don’t you want someone who has
been there before, who knows what these actions are to make sure that
you acquire your dream?
3. Are you a good negotiator?
So maybe you’re not convinced that you need an agent to sell your home.
However, after looking at the list of parties that you need to be
prepared to negotiate with, you’ll realize the value in selecting a Real
Estate Professional. From the buyer (who wants the best deal possible),
to the home inspection companies, to the appraiser, there are a minimum of 10 different people that you will have to be knowledgeable with and answer to, during the process.
4. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?
Not only is it important for your home to be priced correctly from
the start, to attract the right buyers and shorten the time that it’s on
the market, but you also need someone who is not emotionally connected
to your home, to give you the truth as to your home’s value. According to the National Association of REALTORS, “the typical FSBO home sold for $184,000 compared to $230,000 among agent-assisted home sales.” Get the most out of your transaction by hiring a professional. I will always do a market analysis on the home for the buyer or the seller to see the real market value of your home.
5. Do you know what’s really going on in the market?
There is so much information out there on the news and the Internet
about home sales, prices, mortgage rates; how do you know what’s going
on specifically in Plano? Who do you turn to, to tell you how to
competitively price your home correctly at the beginning of the selling
process? How do you know what to offer on your dream home without paying
too much, or offending the seller with a low-ball offer in Frisco? Hiring an agent who has their finger on the pulse of the market will
make your buying/selling experience an educated one. You need someone
who is going to tell you the truth, not just what they think you want to
Why would you make one of your most important financial decisions of your life without hiring a Real Estate Professional?

"Shannon & Howard were extremely patient as we searched for a new home. They listened and guided us through the process. we ended up with a home 600 sqft bigger than we thought we could afford. This was supposed to be a 5-10 year home, but because of their excellent help, we are in our dream home at our dream price "
