What Does a Real Estate Agent Do?

Updated: May 19

A real estate agent is a licensed professional who connects sellers and buyers for real estate transactions. In addition, the agent represents sellers and buyers in legal negotiations.

If you want to sell, buy or rent a property, a real estate agent can guide you through the process. They can advise you on the merits of a property and the terms of a sale or lease.

Responsibilities of a Real Estate Agent

1. Creating a Marketing Campaign

Promoting your property is an essential part to garner interest and attracting buyers. A real estate agent will advise vendors of sales and marketing options such as sale by auction or open house inspections. The internet, signboards and your local newspaper are all useful avenues your agent can explore to build competition among buyers.

2. Negotiate

A good agent will use their negotiation skills to get the best price for their client whether it be the highest selling price, or the best deal when you are looking to buy property. Their local knowledge, communication skills and experience could convince both parties to close a successful deal.

3. Prepare Your Property for Inspections

Real estate agents are licensed professionals and should have experience and knowledge in the laws and guidelines of inspecting a property for a potential sale. An agent can also advise on any necessary repairs or renovations to make your property more appealing to potential buyers.

4. Prepare the Paperwork

A real estate agent will have standard contracts and conditions in place. They will ensure the conditions on the Offer and Acceptance Contract are met and completed on time. They can also negotiate with legal representatives on your behalf.

5. Expert Knowledge of Your Area

Your real estate agent should have in-depth knowledge of your area with a strong sales record. An agent that is active in your local suburb is more likely to negotiate the best possible price.
