Some buyers mistakenly believe that they will do better at negotiating an offer going solo without the help of a real estate agent. Most of the time, however, this just is not at all true. In fact, quite the opposite is the case. Most people who have tried going it alone without the help of an agent regret it. Studies illustrate that signing on with a buyer’s agent can be beneficial to the bottom line when it comes to your Palatine real estate deal.
It’s definitely a benefit that you don’t pay the agent’s commissions up front — your agents fee comes out of the seller’s side of the transaction and was no doubt calculated into the price of the house. But the real benefit is that your agent may be able to save you significant money on the bottom line at the end of the day.
Hiring an experienced real estate professional on your team when you’re talking about a contract where large sums of money changes hands is simply good idea on its face. But add to that the potential bettering of your financial position as a result of the expert skills an agent can bring to the table and it really ought to be an easy decision. There are far too many easy ways to loose money on a deal not to have someone who negotiates sales for Palatine IL homes day in and day out to keep the trains (and the signature pages) running on time.
