Can I DIY Real Estate?

We live in a very DIY culture, and we love it. We go to the local hardware store, look up online tutorials and do all kinds of impressive projects that used to be relegated to the experts. But can you DIY real estate? Some big real estate portal websites are telling you that you can. Search properties on their website, find the perfect house, and live happily ever after.

The truth is there are a lot of details involved in a real estate transaction - more than most people realize, and more than most people are qualified to handle on their own. Did you know that when you buy a house, most of the work actually comes after you find the right home? Did you know that when you're selling your house, agents have access to industry data and knowledge that makes them better equipped to price your house accurately? When you want to aim to get the amount you want for it, or to sell it fast, or some combination of the two, an agent will make a tremendous difference in how the whole experience impacts your family on a daily basis for the months that it takes to buy or sell a home.

Our agents really care about serving you, they are passionate about being an advocate and guide for you during a process is full of potential pitfalls, obstacles, mistakes and disappointments.
