One could ask, do I need a realtor? Many homebuyers ask this question.

Purchasing real estate assets is a long term investment. Buying an asset is a lifetime commitment that involves risks. Find out why it is important to have a reliable real estate expert at your disposal when going into a real estate transaction.


Market Knowledge

A realtor has in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market. In every location, town or city, always remember that the real estate agent knows the vicinity better. They are your tour guide in this market and will guide you in the right direction.


Superior Negotiating Skills

Your real estate agent knows the best possible price to purchase a home. They are well trained and mentally prepared for any negotiation hurdle. With their experience, they can save you money on a purchase of a mouth-watering property.


Fiduciary Duty

A realtor’s first responsibility is to you – the client. A real estate agent is legally obligated to the client. Your interest is a realtor’s top priority. You can trust a realtor.



A realtor can make life easier for you by saving you energy and time. A real estate agent will do the work for you to find properties that fit your standard.


Realtors are emotional Filter

A real estate agent is not emotionally attached to the property you wants to purchase. Buyers often get emotionally attached to a property that ticks their checklists box of requirement. Hiring a realtor would prevent you from making hasty decisions to purchase a home.


Investment Potential

The realtor standpoint is to see the potential investment opportunity in the home and give advice to prospective buyers.

On the plus side, you get a professional service from the real estate agent for free but the realtor earns his commission from providing the owner with a buyer.

Are you house hunting for a luxury apartment in a high rise building?

Here are the top 5 reasons apartments on high floors usually attract a premium in pricing:


One of the most attractive features of an apartment on higher floors is the natural light. It is more noticeable because there are fewer or no shadows from nearby buildings that could obstruct the ray of light. Natural lighting is a key element of luxury living that compliments and enhances the quality of the apartment.


Apartments on higher floors are quieter. Having your home on a high floor reduces noise from the ground, traffic, backup generators or passersby that could interfere with the peace you require in your sanctuary. Homes farther from the ground are more peaceful and calm which is ideal to unwind and relax. This trait makes apartments on higher floors more desirable.


Living in an apartment on a high floor welcomes exclusivity. Apartments on top levels are not prone to foot traffic. Few people have access to these floors like your neighbour compared to lower level apartments. Living on a top floor provides a more private lifestyle.


Apartments on the top floor tend to offer the best views which are desirable and improve the value of the property.


It is said that the higher you go, the cooler you become. This is true of living in tall buildings. You can enjoy the natural breeze and elements if you choose to live occasionally without air conditioning.


In the end, you are not just buying a property, you are investing in a lifestyle.
