Calgary REALTOR®

The Benefits of Working With a Local Real Estate Agent

Working with an Edmonton REALTOR® will ensure you reach the largest buyer market. Although some sellers want to sell privately to save on commission, the reality is that working with a real estate agent will always provide you with the largest market of buyers, meaning the highest offer. By not marketing your property to the largest pool of buyers on, you can rest assured you will not see the best offer. If you aren’t convinced that working with an Edmonton real estate agent is the best choice, this article is for you!

Local Edmonton expertise

A real estate agent in Edmonton will know the local real estate market, including trends, pricing, and neighbourhoods. They can provide valuable insights into the local market and help you make informed decisions about buying or selling a property. Your REALTOR® should have specific knowledge of the local real estate market, including pricing trends, market conditions, and neighbourhood amenities. They can provide valuable insights into which areas are up-and-coming, which properties will likely increase in value, and which neighbourhoods are best suited to your needs.

Negotiation skills

An Edmonton real estate agent will have experience negotiating deals in the local market that can help you get the best deal possible on a property. They can also instruct how to make your offer more appealing to a seller. Real estate negotiations can be complex and often require expertise and experience, something your real estate agent should have! Edmonton REALTORS® prepare an argument to support their client’s position, including information about the property, recent improvements or upgrades, the local market, and other relevant facts. Experience, research, preparation, and communication will allow your REALTOR® to negotiate (hopefully) successfully.

More offers and exposure

Working with an Edmonton REALTOR® means accessing the largest pool of buyers. You may be considering selling your house privately to save the REALTOR® commission, but the commission savings will not guarantee that you pocketed the most out of the sale of your property. What if multiple buyers wanted to purchase your property, and you never knew about it, or they never knew about it? Using a real estate agent and (the powerhouse of real estate search in Canada) will earn you significantly more than you might have saved in commission by selling privately.

Support throughout the process

Your Edmonton REALTOR® will support you in finding the right property, finding the right buyer, or closing the deal. They can also provide referrals to other necessary professionals, such as inspectors or real estate lawyers. Your real estate agent is fluent in Edmonton real estate. They understand how the selling and buying process can be frustrating and sometimes unnerving for clients. Any good REALTOR® will help you smoothly navigate offers, negotiations, contracts, inspections, etc. Your real estate agent will help you feel confident when you feel unsteady; hopefully, they have transacted enough to direct you through the process successfully and efficiently!
