Why You Should Work With a Champaign - Urbana Real Estate Pro in This Digital Age
The internet has given us all a powerful tool to help us do many things, including finding homes for sale. There are endless resources online that can help you find your dream home in Champaign - Urbana, including our website. But should your home search begin and end on the internet?

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the three most popular information sources home buyers use in the home search are:

  • Online website (93%)
  • Real estate agent (86%)
  • Mobile/tablet website or app (73%)

Clearly, most people go online when they search for a home. But that should not be your only method to find your dream home.

Here are 3 top reasons why using a real estate professional in addition to a digital search is key:

1. There’s More to Real Estate Than Finding a Home Online.

The internet is a big place, and it can be complicated to find the right home without expert help. There can be as many as 230 steps during a real estate transaction, and a real estate agent is key to guiding you through those steps. Some of those steps include determining your price, submitting an offer, and successful negotiation. So you certainly want someone who has experience to help you take those important steps.

2. You Need a Skilled Negotiator.

Real estate agents are skilled negotiators, and they can save you a significant amount of money. There are many detailed and complicated steps to completing a successful real estate transaction. You need someone that can keep it all together until you have the keys to your new home in Champaign - Urbana.

3. It Is Crucial to Make a Competitive and Compelling Offer.

There is so much information out there in the news and on the Internet about home sales, prices, and mortgage rates. How do you know what’s specifically going on in your area? How do you know what to offer on your dream home without paying too much or offending the seller with a lowball offer?

Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, advises:

“When getting help with money, whether it’s insurance, real estate or investments, you should always look for someone with the heart of a teacher, not the heart of a salesman.”
