Now more than ever, it is critical for buyers to enlist the help of realtors for a few important reasons! First of all, homes sell so quickly these days, if you aren’t aware of them the minute they hit the market, they’ll sell so quickly you’ll never know they were available. Secondly, homes are selling BEFORE they even hit the market because realtors talk about their buyers and new listings coming up. If you have a realtor, they can be spreading the word for you. Lastly, the realtor community in Miami is tight. If two identical offers were presented on a house and one buyer had a realtor that the listing agent knew and the other buyer had no realtor, considerable weight would be given to that first buyer just because of the existing relationship between the realtors. So buyers, do yourself a huge favor and get a realtor!
