The Value of a Buyer Agent and a Comparative Market Analysis

The cost of a home can seem like a moving target, especially in highly desirable markets. The services of a buyer agent are beneficial to both buyers and sellers to ensure sales proceed smoothly.

Bronx, United States - May 25, 2019 /PressCable/ —

A majority of people that are dreaming of home ownership typically don’t know they have the services of a buyer agent at their fingertips. A buyer agent helps manage appointments, keeps viewings manageable, and is a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge about the local real estate market. They’re highly skilled at collecting and analyzing data that can be used to their client’s advantage.

One of a buyer agent’s skills is creating a comparative market analysis (CMA). He/she will factor in prices of surrounding properties that were sold and their valuation. They’ll understand the local economy and the forces that affect the neighborhood. A buyer agent is methodical and provides an in-depth analysis through a multi-step process.

One of the first steps is to analyze the major features of properties that buyers are exploring. They will look at all the major features, amenities and selling points of the property ranging from fireplaces, hot tubs and gardens to pools, patios and sunrooms. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms and square footage will also be considered.

The buyer agent will also look at the age of the home, if any improvements have been made, and when. Those can include a new roof or remodeling projects. The location of the property will also play a role. A buyer agent will know if the property is near a school, shopping outlets, museums, beaches or public transportation.

Retaining the services of a buyer agent is equally beneficial for sellers and realtors. Collecting and analyzing the requisite data is a time consuming task to create a CMA. Hiring a buyer agent is advantageous for determining the price of a particular property and ensures an equitable sale. They can assess the quality of any given neighborhood and identify if there are any curb appeal issues.

The cost of a home can seem like a moving target, especially in highly desirable markets. The services of a buyer agent are beneficial to both buyers and sellers to ensure sales proceed smoothly.

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Sep 17, 2019

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

China ban on some textbooks seen aimed at Uighur culture

Sep 17, 2019

BEIJING — For 15 years, Yalqun Rozi skillfully navigated state bureaucracies to publish textbooks that taught classic poems and folk tales to millions of his fellow minority Uighurs in China's far western region of Xinjiang. That all changed three years ago when the ruling Communist Party launched what it says is a campaign against ethnic separatism and religious extremism in Xinjiang. Suddenly even respected public figures like Rozi were being arrested, caught up in a crackdown that critics have said amounts to cultural genocide. An estimated 1 million Uighurs have since been detained in internment camps and prisons across the...

HONG KONG — Hong Kong protesters threw bricks and gasoline bombs at police, who responded with tear gas, as chaotic scenes returned to the summer-long anti-government protests on Saturday for the first time in nearly two weeks. Hundreds of black-clad protesters armed with bamboo poles and baseball bats fought with police officers wielding batons on a main road following a march against "smart lampposts" that was sparked by surveillance fears. The chaotic scenes unfolded outside a police station and a nearby shopping mall as officers in riot gear faced off with protesters who set up makeshift street barricades. The violence...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Sep 17, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...
