We live in the age of do-it-yourself.
Never before have we had so much access to the information and resources necessary to get things done. Rebuilding an engine, making kombucha, or learning another language is all a Google search away.
Real estate falls easily into this category.
There’s even an entire television industry built around the buying and selling of homes.
That can make it awfully tempting to try and get into the real estate game on your own.
Selling and buying homes is actually a massive undertaking with potential for trouble at every corner. Getting a qualified real estate team onboard puts you in the position to succeed.
Below we’ll look into what a real estate team can offer you.
A quick note: There very well can be overlap in the skills below. This article wants to illustrate that just by being open to a team, you allow for different people to cover different tasks based on their abilities.
Surely you’ve heard the phrase a jack-of-all-trades, master of none.
That could not apply more perfectly to real estate. There are many different facets to buying and selling the require a diverse selection of talents and skills.
Knowing the market is the first step to a successful real estate deal. Having someone that knows the market and has up-to-date knowledge of ongoing sales allows you to best position yourself to buy or sell.
The listing agent quickly recognizes what aspects of a property are worth highlighting and what might be potential weaknesses. These aspects change market-to-market depending on the needs and wants of the people in the area.
This is data-driven, analytical work that requires a dedicated and well-attuned mind.
People-skills should not be undervalued. Having the right person accompany you to look at properties, or to show your property, can be the difference between a close or a stagnant property.
That’s not to say that the agent with the gregarious personality can’t also be the one with the intimate market knowledge: instead, it’s allowing for the flexibility to allow the person best-suited to the task to manage it.
Hosting an open-house, or being on-site for a home inspection is yet a different skillset than the two previous steps.
These are much more laid back tasks the benefit from a more patient and holistic view. A more data-driven personality may find this type of job tedious, whereas someone with a larger personality may get too involved where they don’t need to be.
Having a real estate team allows for the diversification of skills, allowing the agency to group together complimentary personalities to best achieve success.
That’s a lot of reading. Let’s take a break for a video.
Did that help drive the point of why use a real estate team? While the couple is initially excited by their purchase, thanks to an agent that delivered on the personal level, they’re let down by the fact that the same agent overlooked some pretty important details.
Having a team support you is having an expert set of eyes for each aspect.
