Should you hire a realtor?
You don't have to look for housing on your own. The realtor will select the appropriate option according to your requirements and save time. The main thing is to formulate preferences very accurately.
There is no need to delve into the legal intricacies of buying an apartment on your own. The realtor takes care of all the questions of the purchase and checking of the apartment.
The realtor will professionally assess the apartment, tell about its advantages and disadvantages. Based on this, he will be able to reasonably bargain with the seller in order to lower the price.
An agreement with a realtor does not guarantee 100% purity of the purchase and sale transaction. You will need to check all the details yourself.
You are losing money. Depending on the complexity of the transaction, the realtor's commission ranges from 1 to 6% of the amount.
A realtor can only offer you options where he is offered a commission from the seller. These are the so-called "partnership deals", when the developer or seller pays the buyer's realtor from 0.5% to 4% for the brought buyer.
