Make Sure the Right Person is Working for You.

Five Reasons To Work With An HHIMLS Agent Or Realtor®

We’re seeing impressive growth in the Lowcountry. Our beautiful land and warm weather are big draws. Big growth means two things: More houses are going up. And, there is more competition for those houses, driving up prices.

CoreLogic says home prices are up 6.3 percent from last year. And, it doesn’t see any end in sight as far as increases. Strong employment numbers and economic conditions will continue to bump prices upward.

To make sure you find the house that’s just right for you at the right price, you should work with a Multiple Listing Service of Hilton Head Island (HHIMLS) agent or realtor®. HHIMLS members have access to the most home listings in the area and access to the most information available on all of those properties. When you’re looking for a home, these are two of the most important things you should search out. Working with an HHIMLS agent or realtor has other advantages as well.

1. An HHIMLS agent has that personal touch you can’t find through an internet search. An agent can get to know you and learn exactly what you’re looking for. They can help you weed through listings, saving you unquantifiable time. Some are willing to check out properties for you to let you know if it’s worth your time to see it in person. A good agent will make sure they’re helping to put you in your perfect home, not just any home.

2. A local agent knows the nuances of an area in which you’re looking. They can tell you if there are any upcoming changes to surrounding areas that may affect your property value, good or bad. It’s a huge advantage to work with someone who knows the value of a local area and the fluctuations it has seen.

3. An HHIMLS agent has the most knowledge of property value and understands how to market the property. They can educate you on negotiating the price of your home, what you can up sell, and what the perception is of the market. They can also negotiate on your behalf.

4. They have access to the most amount of listings in the marketplace. That means they know what’s available and how properties compare as far as size, amenities, and value. They can tell you where you can get a larger house for a better value and what you can expect to pay if you want to live closer to the city.

5. HHIMLS adopts the values and ethics of the Realtors Association and incorporates them into its agreement. So with HHIMLS members, you can rest assured that they have the clients’ best interests in mind.

HHIMLS has been in business for more than 40 years. It helped grow the area to what it is today and has become its experts in the real estate industry. You can trust an HHIMLS agent to perform in your best interest, to the best of their ability, with access to the most and latest listings and technology in the area and an industry as a whole.
