Why Do I Need a Real Estate Agent when Buying a Home in Charlotte?


87% Of Buyers Purchased Real Estate Through An Agent Or Broker In 2018


Why do I need a Charlotte Real estate Agent?


Between the historic inventory shortage, intense competition and rapidly rising prices, navigating the Charlotte real estate market in 2018 was a real challenge for buyers. For that very reason, the vast majority of home buyers partnered with real estate professionals for their home search.


According to the 2018 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers from the National Association of Realtors, 87% percent of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker. The main reason? Buyers wanted an agent to help them find the right home for them and their families (52%). I can’t tell you how many times I receive calls from buyers who ‘just found’ a listing that I had on the market (or another agent had on the market) that has been under Contract for over a week. Savvy buyers understand that full-time, high-producing real estate agents have their fingers on the pulse of the local market.

Debe everyone I know who has ever bought or sold a home without Realtor representation wished they had by the end of the transaction.  It tends to be a nightmare experience without a Realtor being involved.

I've heard the same horror stories too, George Souto - and on the selling side as well. It just doesn't make sense not to.

I couldn't agree more, Hannah Williams - I suppose being in the business, we recognize the many pitfalls that those who buy once every 3-10 years would never think of. I don't know why anyone would give up FREE service either!

Good way to get the word out to potential buyers. I think buyers should have their own representation too, a real estate agent working on their behalf, not on behalf of the seller.

Hi Debe,
Buyers should ALWAYS use the services of a professional agent but during these crazy thinventory times, I believe it's even more critical !  Buyers tend to rush decisions and don't properly protect themselves without the guidance of an experienced agent.

HI Debe Maxwell, CRS - I am with you on this one. A buyer says they found a home and I can't find it anywhere.... Come to find out it was sold 6 months ago! Ekkk!

It can be dangerous to show properties to pwople you don't know.  Besides the legal issues safty is big in my book

When I show homes off the beaten path; I perform a safety check as  I’m driving to the listing. My wife monitors my gps position and I call every 15 minutes. If my client is late, I call them and if no answer I leave. I also never park where I can be blocked in Debe...

Morning Debe.

I've never bought or sold a home without an agent, never will.  Just don't understand why someone would decide to go it alone

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty AR LLC) 2 months ago

Hi Debe,
Having been in real estate for 30 years you'd think I'd be competent to sell or buy a property on my own.  NOT!   Too many safety and constantly changing legal pitfalls... not to mention the inconvenience and stress of doing if myself!
