Why work with an agent?
Let alone the reason that agents provide different kinds of expertise (local, negotiation, law and contract), be aware that foreign buyers prefer to do a real estate deal through an agent rather than work directly with a property owner. For them, working with a real estate agent is the surest way to secure their investment in their second home.
Why sign an exclusive contract?
An exclusive contract gives you some important advantages. As exclusivity is much desirable by agents, you can easily negotiate their commission. Besides, your property will be exactly located on the map, and buyers can find it using map search or browsing properties for sale in their current location.
