Here at Mortgage Specialists, we truly value the realtors in Omaha that we’re able to work with on a day-to-day basis. We believe in their importance to the industry and wanted to take the time to explain it to all of you.
So, how do realtors impact the mortgage industry? In every way possible. They streamline the entire process for buyers, sellers, and lenders.
In all honesty, you could probably buy a home without a realtor, but why would you want to try? Not only can realtors offer great advice, but you don’t actually pay them – the seller does.

In our experience, realtors save our buyers time, money, and a lot of headaches. If those reasons aren’t enough to convince you, they also provide the following:
- They often have access to homes before or right when they’re listed.
- They communicate with the seller’s agent on all matters so you don’t have to.
- They stay on top of the process and remind you to complete certain tasks.
- They are skilled negotiators that can help you get the best price.
- They are able to put together a contract properly, helping you to avoid legal disputes in the future.
- Above all, they do this every single day, meaning they have more experience than you. Experience that they’re more than willing to share to make the home buying process as seamless as possible.
You see them around from time-to-time, ‘For Sale By Owner’ signs in front lawns. But, 90% of sellers choose to use a listing agent. Why? Selling a home is a lot of work. It takes time, knowledge, experience in the market, and negotiating skills. [bctt tweet=”90% of sellers choose to use a listing agent.” username=”MTGSpecialists”]
We believe most people should use a listing agent for two reasons. One, listing agents have access to the most recent information on what comparable homes in your neighborhood have sold for. That allows them to set a realistic listing price. Two, they have the tools to market your home and get potential buyers in the door. Sure, a sign in the front yard might work, but what about listing your home online? Do you know where to get professional photos done or how to stage your home for those photos? In our opinion, realtors more than earn what they’re making.
It’s hard for us to imagine the mortgage industry without realtors. As we mentioned above, all of the realtors in Omaha streamline the entire process, from start to finish. They act as another line of communication to the buyer, are there to help answer the buyer’s questions, and help facilitate necessary steps like the home inspection.
To conclude, we would like to thank all of the realtors in Omaha, whether we’ve worked with you or not. We appreciate everything you do for the mortgage industry. We ask that you please take a moment to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter so that we can keep in touch. Us real estate professionals need to stick together!
