Potential homebuyers, pre-covid, might have debated whether or not to use a real estate agent – but it looks like many home seekers are more determined to have an agent by their side.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) released a new survey that found nearly 47% of home shoppers felt that a real estate agent was more vital than before the pandemic. The main reason?
Peace of mind.
A real estate agent helps guide, explain, and present homes you might not have seen otherwise.
54% of buyers and 62% of sellers agreed that because of the uncertainty that COVID-19 brings, the extra help from a real estate agent was among the top of their lists.
NAR President and Broker, Vince Malta, stated: “While we celebrate homeownership month, we embrace today’s version of homeownership and the unique paths homeowners take to realize their dream. For prospective buyers, the desire to own a home remains strong, and the guidance, expertise, and professionalism Realtors provide is more important now than ever.”
