found a home online? realtors are more valuable than ever

A lot has been said about the impact of technology on the residential real estate business. Some people have predicted that technology will circumvent the role of your REALTOR®. After all, information is readily available 24/7/365 to anyone with a mouse. You don’t have to leave your house, you don’t have to get dressed; it’s all there. Theoretically, like eBay, someone could initiate and complete a transaction electronically. You could see streaming video of the property and fall in love. You could write an offer and email it to the seller for consideration and approval. It’s certainly possible to apply for the loan and secure approval using PDF documents. The escrow officer could transmit paperwork electronically, and you could wire funds for the closing. However, those components of the transaction are merely the tip of the iceberg. They are essential ingredients, but they aren’t the significant and meaningful things that still need to be done. In reality, the advancements in technology have actually strengthened the role and importance of a REALTOR® in the sale or purchase of property. The National Association of REALTORS® reports approximately eight out of ten buyers start their house-hunting search on the Internet before they make contact with an agent. Prior to the Internet, buyers sought out REALTORS® to find out what was on the market. Now, that information is available to consumers along with virtual 24/7 open houses on many of the listings. The old role as “show and tell” people, where agents delivered information to prospects and clients, made them easily replaceable. Customers had a hard time differentiating between various licensees and appreciating their value. The new role in this new “high tech” era

is far more complex and valuable to clients. It’s turning into a “high tech and high touch” environment. Agents and brokers are consultants, advisors, and educators. They are professional negotiators whose actions, leadership and efforts are in their client’s best interests acting as their fiduciary. Real estate, by definition, is highly emotional, extremely complicated, and most often adversarial, because the interests of the buyer and the seller are polarized. New research has shown that buyers and sellers depend on professional representation. They are looking for someone who is a skillful negotiator and a committed advocate. Both parties to a transaction are looking for a real estate agent who can manage the contingencies and details surrounding the sale to ensure their compliance. They also want their REALTOR® to accompany them at inspections and the close of escrow. Even if a buyer and a seller were capable and knowledgeable enough to be in a position to wear all of the necessary hats involved in the transaction, and even if they had the time and resources, they would still be at a distinct disadvantage. One of the most valuable benefits of being represented by a REALTOR® is the broker’s capacity to act as a “third party” to the transaction. The principals to the transaction often lack the objectivity and skills to respond and react properly without risk of jeopardizing the sale. From a different perspective, despite any preconceived notions about the advantages of information readily available on the Internet, buyers and sellers need to understand and recognize the limitations of home valuation search engines. The key to sound buying and selling decisions is not the presentation or receipt of information; it is the interpretation of market data. Almost anyone can search for a list of houses for sale or recent solds in an area and there’s certainly an overabundance of data available through a variety of high tech sources. But few people have the talents and skills to make the best decisions out of all of the data.

Since buyers prefer to buy low, and sellers like to sell high, it takes a skilled professional to consult with their client to determine “Reality Based Pricing” that represents a good value. Sellers also need professional representation to develop a tangible marketing plan to help assure that the house will be sold in the seller’s preferred time frame. Sellers are still looking for merchandising and staging recommendations along with evidence of hard work and a diligent effort by the agent. What do clients want from their REALTOR® that they can’t get on the Internet? They want someone who is savvy about current market knowledge and trends. More importantly, they’re looking for someone who will listen and understand their wants and needs. The key to today and tomorrow’s successful transactions is the relationship between the client and their REALTOR®. It’s all about the relationship. The proper selection of an advocate for your transaction can make the critical difference between success and failure in your sale or acquisition.
