4 Reasons to Work with a Local Real Estate Agent

The home buying process is going to be filled with questions, concerns, complexities, and a really rewarding finish! If you have bought a home before, you may have experienced the work that is involved, but you also know the relief and excitement that comes from signing the mortgage paperwork, getting your keys, and walking through the front door of your new home. All of the challenges can be made so much easier when you have a team of experts behind you, which is why we suggest hiring a local real estate agent when purchasing a home at the Lake of the Ozarks. Team Lasson is here to help you navigate the mortgage process, but we have some incredible real estate partners at the Lake that can help you navigate your property search, which is why we have listed several reasons you should work with a local agent!

#1. They Know the Market

Choosing a local real estate agent can be a huge asset because they will be doing more than pulling data and looking at maps. They know about the local market and can answer your questions about locations, pricing, and home types. They can also tell you about what happens in the Lake of the Ozarks real estate market, and what has happened over the last several weeks, months, and even years.

#2. They Have the Network

Marketing plays a huge role in a real estate agent's career, but it also can be the make or break difference for your real estate transaction. Real estate agents make it a priority to network with other real estate agents, or with complimentary businesses, like our mortgage company at the Lake of the Ozarks. A local real estate agent will know who you can trust to get the job done when you encounter different situations during your purchasing process.

#3. They Know the Community

The Lake area is a wonderful community filled with exceptional people, businesses, and schools. By hiring a local real estate agent, you are not just fueling the local economy, but you are investing in an expert who can guide you to an area that fits your needs and wants based on their knowledge of the area.

#4. They Are Invested In You

Hiring a local agent to assist you with your real estate purchase is essentially like working with a neighbor. They are going to have a vested interest in your purchase because they are growing the community by helping you find a home here. That same neighborly attitude is going to be what causes them to help out in any way possible. We have many homebuyers at the Lake of the Ozarks who come from different cities and even different states. This means that local agents may need to get creative when it comes to helping with a home purchase, from video conferencing a walkthrough to utilizing digital signing methods so that your real estate purchase can continue progressing even when you are out of town.
