More than one-third of home buyers last year were first-time purchasers, so there are a lot of newbies in the market.
There could be many more, says Brenda Daly, broker in charge of United Real Estate Aiken.
When Southern Living Magazine designated Aiken, South Carolina as The South’s Best Small Town, it confirmed what many real estate buyers and equestrians already know. “For people who own horses or love horses, it doesn’t get any better than Aiken,” says Debbie Roland, an equestrian and Real Estate Agent at United Real Estate, Aiken. “It’s horse heaven here.”
It’s easy to fall in love with a home that fits all your needs at the time of purchase, but needs evolve over time and eventually, most homeowners find they desire a change. Young couples look for more room and better schools when it’s time to expand their families. Empty nesters want a smaller place after the kids have grown and gone. Retirees often find they prefer a single-story home.
Putting a home on the market is one of the most important financial decisions a homeowner will make, but it’s also one of the most stressful. So having a good partner in the form of an agent is crucial to successfully navigating the real estate process.
“An agent will negotiate on a client’s behalf much better than clients are able to negotiate for themselves because sellers are too emotionally invested,” says Brenda Daly, broker-in-charge at United Real Estate Aiken. “Have a qualified professional negotiate on your behalf, with little stress to you.”
Whether you’re looking to buy or sell your South Carolina home, both processes require plenty of expertise. That’s why it’s crucial to have a professional you can trust by your side. Brenda Daly, broker-in-charge, at United Real Estate Aiken, explains just a few reasons why you can trust the professionals at United Real Estate Aiken.
