Why You Need a Realtor in 2013

dollasThe new year brings bright tidings for real estate and the housing industry for many reasons. Not only is the market seeing a clearing of foreclosure inventory,continued low interest rates, but the upward movement of home prices themselves shows clear improvement on the horizon.

A recent survey by Builder Homesite Inc showed that consumers are reluctant to navigate the home buying process on their own. Over 84% wisely intend to use a Realtor whether shopping for new homes or resales; when asked why they would be getting the help of a qualified agent they listed these great reasons:

  • Get help negotiating terms/prices
  • Find homes that meet their specific criteria
  • Draft offers and contracts
  • Assistance getting through the purchase process
  • Knowledge on marketing conditions
  • References for inspectors and other service providers
  • Knowledge about the neighborhood/area
  • Knowing what comparable homes sell for

It’s no surprise that help negotiating and shuffling the purchase paperwork ranked high in the top reasons to use a Realtor. These tasks tend to be the one’s that can really stymie a transaction; are without a doubt where your agent will really earn their dues.

Star Idaho, Some History
The first location of the village of Star was one mile to the east of present Star, about halfway between the present town of Star and Star-Emmett junction, and is one of the earliest communities in the Boise Valley. The Pioneer ditch (started in 1863 by M.B. Palmer) and its supply of water allowed the country between Star and Middleton to be settled early. Today Star Idaho boasts a quickly blossoming community of wonderful amenities and a population of right around 6,000! A great town just outside the busy Boise streets; perfect to call home!
