Renovating? - Consult Your Real Estate Agent First



You might not know this but real estate agents are not only the bridge between you and a buyer/seller but they offer a wealth of knowledge in other areas too. They play a vital consultancy role when it comes to renovations. Whether you’re a seller and want to fix up the property and stage it or a buyer and want help to get the property into move-in condition.

There are hundreds of decisions that need to be made when renovating your house which make it a little complicated and/or confusing. A real estate agent is your local expert and can guide you in this process. They can also provide referrals for your renovation team such as general contractors, painters, electricians, plumbers, engineers, carpenters, permit facilitators, etc. And, also provide a list of furniture showrooms, recommend appliances, color schemes, furniture placement, room design, and much more.

Real estate agents can also help you keep costs down and within your budget so you don’t end up overspending. When doing renovations you may not understand what works and what doesn’t so you can also use a real estate agent to come in at each stage of work and approve it with the general contractor so that the work can move forward. It’s always a great idea to have outside advice. Also, if there is a problem, they can suggest what to do and discuss it with the contractor.

Bottom line - Keep your real estate agent close to have a smooth start to finish and at the end you’ll be patting yourself on the back for doing so.
