A luxurious and grand society like Bahria Town Karachi is always comes on top of a list of favorite housing residency among Pakistani citizens. With such a demand for houses and apartments, people are often tangled and twisted in the thoughts of saying ‘yes or no’ in choosing a particular home. But sadly, most of them don’t know that a reliable real estate agent can sort out such petty issues for them with a minimal charge and help them to make an informed decision.
Suppose you set out of your home with a specific requirement and a budget for your new dream house. And when you reach the destination, all of the apartments, plots, or homes are worth more than 10% or even 20% of your asking price. Now you don’t know where to go and where to look for more houses like you have in your mind. In that case, having a real estate agent that can cherry-pick particular houses for you is more than a blessing. They often get you 3% or even 5% discounts on the asking price proposed by the seller.
And that 3% deal is worth more than you ever think of. A 50 lacs purchase with a 5% discount can save you a hefty sum of 5 lacs. And that’s just one of a hundred reasons to choose a good real estate agent. From property documentation to property agreement to excellent negotiable skills, everything comes with a package of hiring a professional real estate agent to find a new apartment for sale in Bahria Town Karachi. So, without further ado, let’s explore some of the ways how agents can help buy your desired property.
Off-Market Listings of Homes
Many agents have access to off-market listings of sellers that are selling their houses at negotiable pricing. Such listings don’t put a “yard for sale” banner or ads on their property for whatever reasons. Only an agent who has networks on the ground can have such information and know such sellers. With their skills in the off-market and online market, they can offer a wide range of options to choose from for your next house.
Similarly, buying from an off-market seller helps you to maintain your privacy if you don’t want to brag about your new house. In an online world, there’s still a lot of potential among buyers and sellers working in an offline market. Sometimes, it does happen that many people stumble upon their desired housing schemes in an offline market rather than an online bazaar.
Agents Have Effective Networks
The job of a real estate agent allows them to have a practical list of reliable networks that help them in performing multiple tasks simultaneously without any worries. Due to their vast network, people who’re buying with the help of such agents always have the upper hand during negotiations. Networking also allows buyers to prepare documentation smoothly for property and maintain a check on new papers according to the legal guidelines.
Following are more ways using which you can churn out more from an agent with reliable networks.
- They serve as a medium for the seamless transaction by asking for little commission.
- Cost can be saved in huge bulks with an agent’s way of dealing with things.
- Agents are of great help in a hot, saturated, and competitive market.
- Assistance while deciding on a property can be helpful.
These are just one of the ways from which you can be benefitted from once you’re buying an apartment in Bahria Town Karachi or from other housing schemes in Karachi and in other cities.
They Know ‘in’ And ‘out’ of Every House
A good agent knows the past, present, and future of almost any housing society. With their expert advice, you can trust them with the information or answer they are providing to you about your query. They know if it’s sensible to buy a home or an apartment at your desired location or not. Because of their specialty in this field, they can cherry-pick the properties they think are achievable in the future.
Sometimes agents do have a personality type, meaning they won’t be giving you the information until you ask them questions. Questions that can be helpful to ask your agent are:
- Are there any more options available anywhere in this price bracket?
- Is this an ideal place for family grooming?
- What’s the selling potential of this house?
- What do you think about this property?
- Do you recommend it to your family?
Answers to the aforementioned questions aren’t easy and can’t be given in a mono-word tune. They require detailed explanations related to serious questionnaires which are being asked by you. If you find out the agent isn’t interested in answering your queries, it’s time to switch the agent.
They Help You ‘Closing The Deal’
In the crucial hours of closing the deal, checking important documents, verifying the homeowner’s title name, preparing the contract, finalizing the legal agreement, and preparing a legal accord can be done by a property agent himself. Closing the deal moment can be so crucial and vital while purchasing a home because, according to studies, more than 70% of real estate frauds are executed at the time of purchasing the property.
Therefore, in that precise moment having a companion by your side can be immensely helpful because, as an average real estate investor, you did never dive into the nitty gritty of buying a real estate property. Furthermore, many real estate agents during the interview said that property buyers should look for help at the time of closing the deal.
What’s The Next Step?
If you’re looking to buy an apartment for sale in Bahria Town Karachi or anywhere, having a professional agent that works on your behalf to your potential buyers can be a helpful and laid out process in a professional way. It’s your job as a seller or buyer to ask an agent to handle your property because you aren’t the master of the dealing game in real estate, and that’s perfectly fine.
