As tempting as it is to think you could get a great deal on your own when buying a house without the help of an agent, most of the times, that isn’t the case here in Panama.
Using an experienced agent is important and will make the property purchasing easier thorough the whole process. Your agent is the expert when it comes to closing a deal. Your agent will also help you find the best lawyers and help you negotiate. Basically, your agent will make sure everything moves along as smoothly as possible. Buying a property without an agent will probably cost you more, take longer, and result in a lot of hassle
Here are a few reasons why working with an agent is the best thing when buying a house in Panama.
Risk of being Scammed
I have never heard of anyone who wants to be scammed when going into a real estate transaction. Getting scammed will hurt you emotionally and financially. Scams are most common on presale properties that are sold before construction is finished.
An experienced agent has years of knowledge about what firms and developers are reliable and which ones are fraud. Moreover, agents know how to ask developers the right questions regarding the area surrounding a new development, financing on the property etc.
Buying the Wrong Property
When buying a property, it’s essential to know everything about the past, present, and future of your surroundings. You think that the property you want to buy will have an ocean, but in a year or a few months from now, the view will be blocked by new. Noise issues from construction nearby can also be a problem in the near future. An experienced real estate agent will help you understand the aspects of a property that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Paying more for the Property
No one likes to pay more than necessary on a product when you can get it for lower. Trying to purchase a property without the help of a real estate agent in Panama, it is almost certain that you will overpay for it. A real estate agent has a good sense of what is a fair price.
Getting the job done for cheap is always tempting, but when it comes to real estate in Panama, it’s worth it to pay more. Considering given all the reasons mentioned above, using an agent will definitely save you a lot of money and hassle.
