Without the aid and assistance of a professional Real Estate Agent, purchasers often pay far more than fair market value. It is not uncommon to hear horror stories where thousands of dollars were wasted because the market was unknown.
Market areas differ – what you sold your last home for does not necessarily equate to equal pricing structures in your new neighborhood. Your Real Estate Agent will know what is locally considered good value for investment dollar. If you are relocating to a new city, engage the services of a local Real Estate Agent who intimately understands the fluctuating market trends and will provide a comparative market analysis on the home you wish to purchase.
