Why Work With a Local Agent?

Why work with a local real estate agent? As a resident of the Upstate, working with a local South Carolina real estate team is vital to the success of your real estate transaction. In this video, Hamilton & Company Team Leader and Founder Dan Hamilton shares why working with a real estate agent in your local market is so important.

1. We know the local market factors

A local real estate team like Hamilton & Company understands the Upstate better than any national team. For example, back when the City of Greenville was developing the Swamp Rabbit Trail, many non-locals had no idea what was going on. A real estate agent inexperienced in our local market may not have realized the impact the Swamp Rabbit Trail would have on the local economy, home values, and other vital factors to your real estate transaction. They wouldn’t have understood how to anticipate new growth.

As an experienced, local real estate agent, Dan was able to advise his clients accordingly and anticipate the success of the Swamp Rabbit Trail, and he’s doing the same thing today. Greenville is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, and it’s important to partner with a local expert when determining where to live or when to sell.

2. We know the people

Real estate is a highly relational business; often more than 450 people are involved with your real estate transaction before it’s over! Knowing the right people makes the difference. With over 20 years of real estate experience in the Upstate, Dan knows all the best lenders, inspectors, lawyers, and other local experts that will make your transaction seamless and stress-free.

3. We negotiate on your behalf

Our buyers know just how hard we work to represent them and their interests, not the interests of a national brand or the seller. We work hard to develop strong relationships with our community and with other Upstate agents,

Our buyers know just how hard we work to represent them and their interests, not those of a national brand. We know the Upstate well and can find the perfect location for our clients based on their needs, budget, and wishlist items.

4. We generate quality leads

As a seller, our goal is to bring you the best offer quickly, and thanks to our strong database of over 40,000 leads updated monthly, we can do just that! A few months ago, sellers got multiple offers without event trying. Now, there are still plenty of buyers on the market but none are bidding for homes like they used to. We’ll find the best buyers willing to pay the best price for your home.

5. We know about off-market opportunities

Many of the best homes in Greenville sell quietly off the market. Thankfully, our well-connected team is aware of many of these off-the-books transactions and can help you gain an edge and get your offer in. Thanks to our network, we can even find homes before they go to market!

The Bottom Line

When you are looking to buy and sell real estate in a city growing as fast as Greenville, it’s vital to work with an agent that not only understands the local market factors, but also has years of experience and the local connections to make your transaction as smooth as possible. With 20 years of personal experience in real estate, Dan is that expert. Give us a call today at 864-527-7685 and learn how we can help you achieve your real estate goals!
