Buying a home is likely one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why you want to make sure you get it right. Buying a home in Asheville requires a lengthy process including hours spent researching the best neighborhoods, inspections, mortgages, and plenty of technical documents and forms. Working with a realtor from the Keller Williams team is the best way to ensure you get the best home for the best price, with as few headaches as possible.
Here are five of the benefits of using a Keller Williams Asheville realtor when buying a home in Western North Carolina:
1) Realtors are WNC Real Estate Experts
At any given moment there are hundreds of homes for sale in Asheville, Hendersonville, Weaverville, and beyond. So how do you know which community is the right fit for you? Realtors have connected countless people with the home of their dreams, and they know all of the ins and outs of our communities. Realtors have invaluable information about homes that goes well beyond the square footage and listing price including which utilities are available, schools, zoning, and many other factors that go well beyond the listing data.
2) Realtors Save You Time
With all of this information on communities and homes, realtors can save you an incredible amount of time. If you’re house hunting on your own, that could entail hours and hours of sifting through online listings, driving around neighborhoods, and looking up information about surrounding businesses and school districts. Realtors can help you eliminate dozens of available homes that aren’t the perfect fit for you right away. A realtor will ask what’s important to you—whether it’s architectural style, number of bedrooms, yard size, or any other factor—and guide you towards homes that check your boxes. The time you’ll save with a realtor could make all the difference between getting your dream home and settling for less-than-perfect.
3) Emotional Support and Compassion
Buying a home is a long process with many ups and downs. You’re almost certain to go through some moments of stress and frustration, especially if the road to homeownership has some bumps along the way. We’ve seen it all, from mortgage approvals that are below what the buyer was hoping for to inspections that turn a perfect home into a nightmare. Through it all, we’re here for you. At Keller Williams Asheville we believe in being a supportive, friendly, and compassionate partner in your homebuying process. We want to be there for you through everything, from the difficult moments to the joyous ones, to offer support and advice at every turning point.
4) Realtors are Expert Negotiators
Whether you’re selling or buying a home, Keller Williams Asheville realtors are determined to get you the best deal possible. That includes helping sellers set the asking price they deserve, and ensuring buyers are getting what they pay for. Asheville is a cutthroat real estate market: it’s one of the most popular places to visit and live in Western North Carolina, and hundreds of people are competing for homes here. You don’t want to face a bidding war without an expert negotiator at your side. A realtor will help you put together a winning offer, with a purchase agreement that leaves plenty of time for inspections and other contingencies as well.
5) Realtors are Bound by Ethics and Duty
Realtors aren’t just people who know a lot about homes: they’re educated, licensed, and bound by a strict code of ethics and legal responsibilities. Legally, a realtor must put their client’s best interests first when negotiating a deal. Realtors are bound by a strict code of ethics, outlined by the National Association of Realtors, that ensures they are acting in a transparent, fair way in all real estate transactions. People who are not licensed realtors are not bound by this same code, and have no obligation to protect your interests. Working with a Keller Williams Asheville realtor ensures the homebuying and selling process is ethical and legal, which saves both sellers and buyers from any potential surprises.
