The number one reason I see for buyers paying too much for real estate is that they are using out of area realtors. When you are relocating from another area, you may have a great relationship with a realtor from that area. And although they may be a great agent, it does not mean that they will have the community knowledge, neighborhood knowledge and the expertise to sell you the best home in the neighborhood that you desire in a different area.
The benefit of using a local realtor with extensive neighborhood and community knowledge is that they will know all the resources of your new town—the schools, the park and rec, where to go hiking, the local dog park, where to watch the fireworks—all of the things that make the neighborhood special.
And most importantly, they will also know housing prices and they will make sure that you are not overpaying for a home in your desired location.
