Agents can negotiate the price.
When the initial offer is accepted, the process does not end. The most significant benefit of using a real estate agent is to represent you with their negotiation skills. They are familiar with the area and can recognize high prices and negotiate for you. This way, you will buy a house with a reasonable price.
Real estate agents have real estate connections.
A home inspection is critical for purchasing a house and then selling it later. Your real estate agent can recommend someone reliable to do the home inspection when the time comes.
