Importance of a LOCAL Realtor


WHY is it important to work with a LOCAL Realtor?

I thought this wasn’t in an HOA??

As a LOCAL Realtor, for Mason County,  I focus specifically within a certain radius that I am an expert in;  working out of my market area – I do not know enough about areas out of my market such as specific market times, values,  specific county/city ordinances, neighborhoods, amenities etc.  A fairly typical radius for what we would consider LOCAL for a market area -ours being  quite rural)  “LOCAL” is approx a 40-60 mile radius (although 60 is pushing it for me).

In the past few weeks, waiting and watching our multiple listing service for new homes for sale to come on the market, I have noticed an increase in out of area agents marketing homes within our market area.  Three of the new listings that came on the market had incorrect information inputted in the MLS.  I actually passed a listing up for one of my Buyers because of wrong information, and it happened to be the one for my client. Fortunately, because I know the area like the back of my hand, I went back and did the research that brought up the incorrect info.

As a LOCAL Realtor,  focusing within a certain radius allows me to be an expert in that area. Out of area brokers  do not have that expertise – such as  market times, values,  specific county/city ordinances, neighborhoods, restricted uses, and amenities. A typical radius for a LOCAL market (our area being  quite rural) ,is approx  40-60 miles; although, I will say that 60 miles is pushing it for me… The further away something is, the harder it is to maintain that listing for me.

Consequently, Buyers will miss seeing your home if it is marketed with  incorrect information

Common Mistakes Made by non LOCAL Realtors

Here are just a few of the most common mistakes I have seen:

  1. Brokers placing homes in the wrong Multiple Listing Service area, causing other brokers to not see the listing…. It can’t be sold, if it can’t be seen!
  2.  Wrong information such as the certain restrictions of the property use or neighborhood, or amenities etc.
  3.  Wrong Directions to the property. If you can’t get there, well………  you know the rest.. 🙄

Fortunately, because of my area expertise as a LOCAL realtor, I can “read between the lines,” so to speak,  when reviewing listings marketed by out of area brokers.
