Why hire a Realtor…


Most people wonder if they should hire a realtor when they are buying or building a home, the answer is YES, it is very important to ALWAYS have a Realtor represent you in your real estate transactions.  Did you know buyers don’t pay real estate commission?  The sellers pay all commissions, so why not hire a Realtor and have the smoothest transaction possible? Having a Realtor working for you is an advantage. Why give up that advantage when it comes at no cost to you?


What if I am building a new home, do I still need a Realtor then?


Yes, it is still important to have a Realtor by your side even when you choose to build a home.  The builders have their own agents or representatives who represent them. You as the client should also have an agent.  Realtors have fiduciary responsibility to their client.  This means their responsibility is to make sure your best interests are tended to.  One of the most important jobs of a Realtor is to negotiate the best deal for the clients as possible; this is even true with building a home.  Your Realtor will also be there to answer questions during the contract signing, to attend your walk through with you, to work hand in hand with the title company, lender, and even guide you through inspections.


How can a Realtor in Vero Beach help me when I am moving out of town, state or even to a different county?


When you have to move away from the town, state, or even country that you are used to can be very nerve wracking and stressful.  Realtors understand this very well. Not only are you trying to pack up your whole life and move to an area you are unfamiliar with, you also have to think about where you are going to live.  You most likely don’t know anyone or very few people in this new area which makes finding a home that much more difficult.  As part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network we have offices in 38 states and have a presence in 65 countries and territories.  What does this mean for you?  This means that while you are still in Vero Beach, The Star Team can get you connected with a trusted Sotheby’s agent in whatever area you are relocating to.  You can build a relationship with your agent and they can begin the home search for you so that when the day comes and you begin your journey, you not only have a wonderful new home, but also a friend to show you around and answer questions about your new location.  The Star Team is dedicated to making all of your real estate transactions as smooth and seamless as possible, even from hundreds or thousands of miles away.


Just remember, it doesn’t cost anything for a buyer to hire a Realtor, BUT it can cost you in the long run.  The Star Team also dedicated to negotiating the best deal possible and being here to guide you through any issues if they arise.
