A real estate transaction has a lot of moving parts. While most homebuyers and sellers will endure this process a handful of times, an experienced real estate agent may handle dozens of transactions – every year.
Did you know? Every 30 seconds, a RE/MAX agent helps someone find their perfect place.
Once you’ve found a home or a buyer, the buyer will submit an offer. When you’re sure that it’s a good deal (you are confident that it’s a good offer, right?), a contract will need to be drafted and signed by the buyer and seller. Remember, if it’s not in the contract, it doesn’t count. A real estate lawyer can help with this step of the process if needed. A benefit of working with an agent is that oftentimes they already have a lawyer that they work with regularly, ensuring all legal matters are handled correctly and in a timely fashion.
Furthermore, real estate agents abide by something called “fiduciary duty,” which means they are obligated to put their clients’ interests first. If you’re working with a real estate agent, you can rest assured that your agent is working to help you reach your real estate goals.
