The Miami realtor plays a critical role in the real estate transaction.

Many home buyers and sellers are not aware of the true value that the realtor provides during the course of a real estate transaction.  Many people, in fact, are not cognizant of the expertise, professional knowledge, and just plain hard work that go into bringing about a successful real estate transaction.

A multitude of important services and steps required in a real estate transaction are carried out by the realtor of the brokerage staff.  Most of these step have traditionally been viewed simply as part of a realtor’s professional responsibilities to the client.  But, without them, the transaction could be placed in jeopardy.

Depending on the transaction, some of these services and steps may take minutes, hours or even days to complete, while some may not be needed.

The Fed decided to keep interest rates low this week. While the economy has improved, the two most recent job reports indicate somewhat of a stagnation in growth. So, rather than “rocking the boat”, so to speak, Fed Chief Janet Yellen, along with the other Fed governors voted to maintain rates as is.

Clearly, this is a great move for the real estate market nationwide, but even more so here in South Florida, where “Paradise”, as many like to refer to Miami and its surrounding communities, continue to welcome tourists, visitors, businesses and new residents almost daily.

Already the hub for business activity to Latin America, Miami is poised to become the same for the European Community. Many continue to seek the strength and safety of the USA. Miami is a natural fit for so many reasons.

If you’re anything like most Americans, your house is your greatest asset. So, whether you are buying or selling, you’re going to want to make sure you have all your I’s dotted and your t’s crossed with regards to selecting the right realtor for your sale or purchase.

The South Florida market is one of the most active markets in the country today. Since the decline of the market in late 2008, hitting lows later in 2009 and early 2010, the market has soared back to reach even higher highs?

Did you take advantage of this price appreciation?

Though we’re into the middle of 2016 already (where has the year gone), the South Florida market continues strong. There is talk of prices easing, but we’ve not seen such price declines, yet.

With regards to selling, you (the seller), are in control of your home’s destiny. You have all the power to determine whether or not your house will sell quickly or if it will stay on the market for a longer period of time.  In addition to choosing the correct realtor to represent and market your property, the next most important decision you will make is whether or not to price your home properly (and in-line with the comparables) or list it too high, and have the property linger on the market for a longer time.

If you price your home properly, you will benefit from a quick sale and turn around.  If you choose to ask more than the current value vis a vis the market, your house will suffer from a “reputation.”  Why risk that?

My name is Mario Quintero, “Your Realtor for Life.”  With access to the most sophisticated programs, I’ve helped thousands of homeowners just like you properly price their properties for a quick sale, in line with the surrounding market, while maximizing the value of their property.

Don’t chance having your home sit on the market longer than necessary.  Call me today at 305-598-1600 for a proper assessment.
