You don't need to know everything about buying and selling real estate if you hire a CIREBA trained real estate professional who does. Our commission rates are regulated so all CIREBA professional agents/ brokers cost the same. Why not hire a person with more education and experience than you? We're all looking for more precious time in our lives, and hiring pros gives us that time.
Agents take the spam out of your property showings and visits. If you're a buyer, your agent will do their best in finding you the perfect home ticking all or the majority of the boxes on your wish list. If you're a seller, your agent will filter all those emails and phone calls that lead to nowhere from tire kickers and try to induce serious buyers to write an offer immediately in order to get your home SOLD.
Experienced Agents will have the intimate knowledge or they know how and where to find it promptly. We can prepare a comparative analysis for you in your desired areas and provide important information you may wish to know about the neighborhood.
Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select prices for buyers or sellers. However, an agent will help to guide clients to make the right choices for themselves within their price range. Then based on the markets supply, demand and the conditions, the agent will devise a negotiation strategy best suitable for each transaction.
Professional real estate agents can disclose market conditions, which will govern your selling or buying process. Many factors determine how you will proceed. Data such as the average price per square foot of similar homes, median and average sales prices in the specific area, average days on he market and ratios of list-to-sold prices, among other criteria, will have a bearing on what you ultimately decide to do.
Real estate agents network with other professionals, many of whom provide services that you will need in purchasing or selling a property. In Grand Cayman, as a CIREBA member, all agents work together via our MLS (Multiple Listing System) so you can choose the one agent that you like and let them do all the research/ work for you.
Your chosen agent can give you a list of references with whom they have worked and provide background information to help you make a wise selection or you can normally view their testimonial on their website. Trust your first impression and work with the agent you feel you can trust, has the qualifications, work experience, and that will go above and beyond for you.
Top producing agents negotiate well because, unlike most buyers and sellers, they can remove themselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction and because they are skilled. It's part of our job description. Good agents are not messengers, delivering buyer's offers to sellers and vice versa. They are professionals who are trained to present their client's case in the best light and agree to hold client information confidential from competing interests.
The Standard Offer to Purchase agreement is 9 pages. Your professional agent can guide you in specific conditions, financing information, Stamp Duty fees, legal contacts, services connections, and are trained and qualified to handle your closing for you.
Even the smoothest transactions that close without complications can come back to haunt. For example, Government that collect property stamp duty, Transfer of Land documents, and other items regarding your closing transaction and Lands & Survey can fall months behind and some documents are even lost but one call to your agent can straighten out the confusion. Many questions can pop up that were overlooked in the excitement of closing. Good agents stand by their clients and are always ready to assist. Worthy and honest agents don't leave you in the dust to fend for yourself.
The basis for an agent's success and continued career in real estate is referrals. Few agents would survive if their livelihood was dependent on consistently drumming up new business. This emphasis gives agents strong incentives to make certain clients are happy and satisfied. It also means that an agent who stays in the business will be there for you when you need to hire an agent again. Many will periodically mail market updates to you to keep you informed and to stay in touch. Azure Realty Limited loves referrals and will gladly pay you a referral fee for referring your friends and family to us once a transaction if completed.
