5 Reasons Why Using A Local Agent Is Better

 

Solon Ohio

Local agents know their towns better than anyone else. We firmly believe that using a local Realtor® is in your best interests and in this post we will give you reasons why local is the only way to go.

 

5 REASONS WHY USING A LOCAL AGENT IS BETTER

1.     Superior Market Knowledge - A good local agent knows the inventory inside and out and will be able to more easily pick out homes that are a good fit for you.

2.     They Know The Schools -  A local agent will have personal experience with the school system and be able to share valuable information with you.

3.     Neighborhood Experts - A local agent not only knows all the specific neighborhoods, but often has friends and clients in each one that can be made available to you if needed. Our clients always appreciate hearing from people who live in the neighborhoods in which they are considering.

4.     Strong Relationships With Other Agents - A good local agent will network with other local agents to get information that you will never find on line. We will know about homes that may be coming on the market in the future or learn about a seller who has suddenly become "highly motivated" and is open to offers.  

5.     In The Know - Real estate gossip gets discussed in small circles in every community, like at PTA meetings and at the local softball field.  While most agents will never learn this "insider information", a local agent hears these things and will share them with their clients.

LOCAL IS SAFER

If you are ever looking to buy or sell a home, remember that a real estate transaction is very complicated,  involving a lot of money and risk.  A local agent is always the safest choice.

Hi Dan and Amy - Wow, a lot of different responses. I do agree that local is better, but it also depends on the circumstances -  in my business I find that my "Neighbourhoods" are the second most visited page on my website, after my home page/listings. When asked about schools I refer clients to the various local school board websites.

I actually used Active Rain to find someone in St. Augustine for a referral.  I live in an area where there are waterfront properties all over the place.  I didn't want to go to an area where you have to have three different MLS systems.  One way or another, it is always the best interests of our customers.

Carol - So true. Consumers should do their homework and choose someone that knows the area in which they are buying or selling.

Mary - Looking forward to seeing you as well.

David - Seems like consumers really love looking at the local info.

Cynthia -  We just visited family in Jacksonville over the summer and spent a day in St. Augustine, what a neat city. We could have spent much more time there.
