The Internet has equipped us with more information, tutorials and access than we’ve ever had before.
And that’s great. We’ve got the world at our fingertips.
But it also means that plenty of home Buyers and Sellers are increasingly convinced that they can tackle Arizona real estate on their own with no real estate agent needed.
Wrong! (But you knew that already, right?)
All the wisdom of the Internet can’t replace the experience, know-how and strategies that a veteran real estate agent like Ryan delivers.
That’s why, it’s in your best interest and why Buyers and Sellers across all generations and demographics choose to work with Ryan
1. YOU’LL HAVE AN INDUSTRY EXPERT TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS
Buying and Selling a home requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds and multi-page settlement statements. Ryan is a knowledgeable expert that will help you prepare the best deal and avoid delays and costly mistakes.
Ryan has previously negotiated over 500+ real estate transactions the pst 10 years and is highly equipped to handle difficult negotiations and emotionally charged transactions. Negotiating is a significant part of the job description; only the best agents know how to best represent their client’s interests, and the strategies that will get the best results.
Without that experience and know-how, and with the huge emotional investment that comes with house hunting, a Buyer isn’t positioned for a successful negotiation.
3. YOU’LL RECEIVE INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF LOCAL MARKETS
Ryan’s extensive local knowledge can mean the difference between buying a home for list price or under asking, and the likelihood of getting the best possible closing conditions.
Buyers can research endlessly, but their newly acquired knowledge still won’t match what a full time real estate agent knows about market history, statistics and how the local industry works.
Not many consumers look closely at the average days spent on the market, average price per square foot, median sale prices vs average sale price, market trends/statistics and how these factors will impact the house they buy.
As well, many times the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised on the MLS, and Ryan may know where this “Pocket Listing” can be found.
4. YOU’LL HAVE INSIDE ACCESS AND INFORMATION
Buyers and Sellers representing themselves don’t get the same kind of access that our team of professional Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty real estate agents have. Those credentials actually do stand for a lot in this industry. With Ryan you will be allowed entry to exclusive Open Houses and all gated communities, for example, that the general public are barred from.
And don’t forget about a Ryan’s familiarity with processes — making an offer, closing, all the legal details. That expertise only comes with 10 years of inside experience.
5. YOU’LL HAVE AN EXPERT HELP YOU SEE THINGS THE GENERAL PUBLIC OFTEN MISSES
Touring a home with an experienced industry expert is much different than walking through as an unaccompanied Buyer. Ryan will point out features and potential red flags that an untrained eye won’t see. And those details could mean the difference between buying a blue-ribbon home or a head ache property.
A real estate agent with Ryan’s experiance can also read between the lines of listing descriptions and contracts, catching potential landmines that would go unnoticed by someone outside of the industry.
6. YOU’LL HAVE A SEASONED VETRAN WHO PROTECTS HIS CLIENTS…
…From mountains of paperwork, heated discussions, awkward questions, and negotiations of seemingly minute details.
Ryan is both the expert and the buffer in the home-buying/selling process, sparing his clients from the stress and the work involved.
Most people pay someone to cut their hair, do their taxes, litigate in court, remove a tooth, perform surguries because they trust their skills and they want to be happy with the end result.
Why wouldn’t you choose to trust a 10 year real estate professional when it comes to a large monetary (and emotional) investment as huge as buying or selling a home?
7. YOU’LL HAVE A REALTOR® WHO WORKS WITH A STRICT CODE OF ETHICS
As a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR), Ryan has made a deep commitment to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. As a client of Ryan’s, you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction-related matters. It is mandatory for REALTORS® to take a Code of Ethics orientation and they are required to complete Continuing Education courses at least 3 times a year to uphold their Arizona Real Estate License.
So when you are ready to buy or sell a property in Arizona…….Contact Ryan, your investment will be glad you did.
