5 Reasons to Use a Real Estate Agent When Selling

  Five  Reasons to Use a Real Estate Agent When Selling

When selling real estate, sometimes it better to hire the professional that to ensure the job gets done right.  This can be said for many things in life.  Nobody is an expert at everything, which is why there are trained and experienced professionals in every industry. Unless you’re experienced in selling real estate, hiring a real estate agent to sell your home is the smart way to go.

 U.S. News & World Report came up with 5 reasons why they think it’s important as well….

1. Employ an expert: A typical property owner does not have anywhere near the home-selling experience of a real estate agent. Agents can recommend relatively simple improvements—painting, making repairs, decluttering—that can help a home sell faster and for a better price. “The Realtor is the neighborhood expert,” Moore says. “We can walk through a property and see right away what needs to be done to [get the home sold].” Independent sellers might not be aware of these tricks of the trade.

2. Use better tools: Homeowners using agents can get their property listed on Realtor.com, “which has more far-reaching access to market that property—with over 3 million properties on it—than the for-sale-by-owner sites, which have tens of thousands,” Moore says. Independent sellers do not have access to this service.

3. Sidestep lawsuits: Agents can also protect sellers from potential litigation. “There are all kinds of liability issues that a seller could potentially face when…dealing one on one with a buyer,” Moore says. A homeowner could, for example, tell a potential buyer that hardwood floors extend to all corners of the house underneath the wall-to-wall carpeting. But if even one room has cement flooring, the homeowner could be sued, Moore says. Agents, who have experience dealing with these liability issues, can help homeowners dodge such scenarios.

4. Duck the riffraff: Independent sellers might not have any idea whom they are letting into their homes during open houses. These potential buyers might not have the credit to make the purchase—and would therefore be wasting the homeowner’s time—or could even “try to rob them later on,” Moore says. “It’s a very scary kind of thing.” She says that homeowners working with agents will have qualified buyers visiting their properties.

5. Avoid hardball tactics: It’s a buyer’s market out there. And with all the information available online, today’s well-informed buyers are tough negotiators, too. Real estate agents have been through the home-selling process before and are trained in negotiating tactics—giving them a potential edge in hammering out a deal in the seller’s best interest. “It’s hard to do that with your own property, particularly if you are not a professional,” Moore says.

All these points are important, but #5 caught my attention the most. It is a buyer’s market, you know it and so do the buyers! If you are not trained in negotiating tactics when the potential hone buyer approaches with an offer, you could be manipulated to sell well below what you’re asking. A trained professional will ensure this does not happen.

In the end, paying the real estate agent fees may be worth it. It could cost considerably more to be out-negotiated.

The Woodlands Market Street: Environment Friendly

The Woodlands Market Street: Environment Friendly

The Woodlands Market Street has set the bar for being environment friendly. The proprietors of this community have made sure that the community preserve the environment it is built on. For years, activists have opposed the construction of new subdivisions in areas that they considered as protected. A good number of people have dedicated their lives to keep these areas as pristine as possible. These individuals have concluded that the constant construction of residences have lead to the cutting down of numerous trees and replacing them with brick walls and buildings. However, The Woodlands Market Street has begged to differ and set an example for others to follow.

The Woodlands Market Street is designed with the environment in mind. This community is indeed an eco-friendly village. If you are wondering about the measures the proprietors took in order to make the community eco-friendly, here are some examples.

Using Grass

Instead of covering The Woodlands Market Street with concrete, the architects created a design that will pave way for grassy patches rather. Anywhere you look at the street you will notice areas covered in grass. In fact, majority of the area is covered in grass. Grass reduces the heat being emitted by the concrete therefore enabling the establishments save on energy consumption.

Recycling

Recycling is defined as the method of reprocessing waste materials and transforms it into a different product. The Woodlands Market Street has encouraged the establishments to engage in recycling be providing the customers with re-usable shopping bags and proper garbage segregation. This will allow them to separate reusable items from biodegradable items. The re-usable shopping bags on the other hand will allow the consumers to reduce the amount of plastic shopping bags used whenever they go out to shop or buy groceries.

Go up

In the hopes of conserving space the buildings where constructed in an upward manner rather than outward. This enabled The Woodlands Market Street to save of the land area being used for buildings and more land area for grassy patches and parks. This upward construction is not only reserved for establishments but it also applies to parking areas and garages.

Saving Trees

The problem with construction subdivisions is that trees are cut down. To counter this, trees are planted all over the Woodlands Market Street. More than 500 trees are saved as well as the 24 mature trees rescued from previous projects.

Conserve Energy

The growing number of people residing in one area will result to an increase demand for energy. In order for The Woodlands Market Street to save on energy consumption, they installed solar panels and reflective roofing materials. These reflective roofing materials are not just installed in one building, but are installed on all buildings. Each year they get to save enough energy to power 30 residences at the same time.

MD Anderson to Brighten Market Street with Pink Lighting

THE WOODLANDS, Texas – The MD Anderson Regional Care Center in The Woodlands will recognize breast cancer awareness month by lighting the Market Street square and lawn pink Thursday, October 14 from 6-10 p.m.

At the pink lighting event, MD Anderson staff and volunteers will be on hand to pass out free educational materials and pink glow necklaces to spread the light of breast cancer awareness and hope.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. More than 182,000 new breast cancer cases in women are expected to occur in the United States this year, and about 2,000 new breast cancer cases are expected to occur in men in 2010. Early detection is an individual’s best chance with the breast cancer survival rate of 96 percent. Women should get annual mammograms and clinical breast exams at age 40 and older.
