With the help of comprehensive real estate platforms like Ohmyhome, the process of finding and buying a new home has become easier than ever, often begging the question of: “Should I even enlist the help of an agent when buying a new home?”

Well, buying a home often means investing your life savings–and even pinning your hopes and dreams–on a piece of property. So, while you indeed can complete your real estate transactions independently thanks to modern technology, the advantage of working with a professional is you can make sure your hard-earned money and future as an investor are in good hands.

By working with a trusted agent, you have the benefit of having years’ worth of professional real estate experience and expertise being used to ensure that nothing is amiss with your property purchase and that you find a home that you can make the most of. This is achieved in three ways.

1. Convenience

Finding the right house or condominium for sale that is worth purchasing is in itself a cumbersome process, what with the thousands of properties listed on the market. Even just two units located in the same condo building can vary in terms of design, overall layout, and price, so much more could be different across multiple properties.

A reliable real estate agent in the Philippines not only has a good grasp of what is currently on the market and can offer you numerous options, he or she would also be able to analyze and narrow down the available properties and present you with a pair to a handful of homes to choose from. This helps save time, while also ensuring your choices are ones that meet your specific needs and preferences in a home.

2. Efficiency

Speaking of saving time, the property process can take at least a month to accomplish, and that’s at a minimum. By working with an agent, the time spent to complete your home acquisition if you do it by yourself can be reduced by as much as half and is where all the experiences and tools of the brokers will come into play. 

The time used to sort through properties and narrowing down to the most viable choices, setting a schedule to view it, negotiating for it, submitting an offer to buy it, drafting a contract and notarizing it, and finally transferring the title from the name of the seller to the name of the buyer gets reduced significantly when working with an agent that is nuanced with each step.

3. Value

The core contribution a broker makes to the property-buying process is making sure a buyer is able to acquire the best home for the best price. Agents assist home seekers in getting the most value for their money by finding the latter homes for sale that are most in line with their specifications at the lowest possible price.

An added benefit to working with an agent is when they don’t have exclusive ties with a single real estate developer or commercial bank. In this way, you are working with a real estate professional who is not limited to what he or she can recommend to you in terms of properties to consider buying or home loans to apply for and can fully offer options that cover both what you want and need and what you can afford.
