We are undoubtedly in a challenging economic environment. Now, more than ever, we need to be industrious and thorough with how real estate transactions are approached. For this reason, I want to share with you two very important factors that I use as your realtor: Experience and Data.
Below I will share with you why I believe that these two factors are essential to provide the best service to clients in the future.
I learned early on in my career that one of the most critical factors in becoming a leader in the real estate industry is experience. Over the past 27 years, I have worked to build my experience to provide the best service to my clients.
Here are three reasons my experience as an agent is essential:
Local Market Knowledge
Spending decades learning the local market gives me a deep understanding of where the market has been and where it is potentially heading. This allows me to spot trends, new neighborhood developments, and the true value of properties. I leverage this experience to help clients find opportunities that may not be in plain sight.
Navigation of Real Estate Transactions
Real estate transactions can often be complicated and require a certain amount of negotiation. My experience with hundreds of real estate transactions gives me unique insight and understanding of how to get the best real estate transactions for my clients.
Likewise, real estate transactions can have unexpected challenges. Experience navigating through various challenges has given me a unique problem-solving skillset to ensure the client’s best possible outcome during the transaction.
I’ve been fortunate to build an exemplary network of colleagues, lenders, inspectors, and contractors. This network has been invaluable throughout my career. My trusted network helps me price properties appropriately, identify potential issues or values, find appropriate financing, and complete transactions quickly.
Data matters when buying a home because it can help you make informed decisions about where to live, how much to pay, and what type of property to buy. For example, I use data to research neighborhoods, compare prices, and identify homes that meet your needs.
Here are three of the ways I use data as your agent:
Finding the Right Neighborhood and Home
I use data to research neighborhoods to help you find a home that meets your unique needs and preferences. Likewise, data can help find pockets of Real Estate opportunities. For example, I recently identified and wrote about an up-and-coming pocket called Blandtown.
When buying or selling a property, price is king; I want you to get the optimal price whether you are buying or selling. I use data to analyze home prices. My analysis will help you find the best value on a home that meets your needs or the optimal sale price if you are selling.
Inform Macro Decisions
Data can also help you stay up-to-date on the housing market and make informed decisions about when to buy a home. For example, every quarter, I share with you market updates where I track the number of homes on the market, the average price, and the days homes have been on the market from both a local and national level. This information lets me guide you on a macro level.
Overall, data can be a valuable tool when buying a home. It can help you make informed decisions about where to live, how much to pay, and what type of property to buy.
Real estate transactions have evolved over many years; for me, a critical element of industry leadership is the ability to evolve with the industry in order to provide the best service to my clients. While I believe that nothing can replace an experienced agent, the agent needs to combine experience with data to optimize transactions now and in the future.
