Why Use a Realtor®?

When the time comes for you to buy or sell a home, whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or seller or seasoned in the market, it’s important to use a qualified Realtor®. But keep in mind that not all realtors in Lewisburg PA are the same.

Only real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of Realtors® are properly called Realtors®. According to Realtor.com, an independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same Realtor® again. We’re confident that if you choose Bowen as your agent of choice, we will deliver the results you’re looking for in a timely and professional manner. In fact, our mission at Bowen is “To exceed the expected service of our clients and vendor servicers relating to real estate sales, rentals and appraisal services”.

Who Needs a Realtor® Anyway?!

One of the most basic reasons to use a qualified Realtor® is because this will be one of the largest financial investments that you’ll make in your lifetime. Practically speaking, most transactions exceed $100,000 – so why would you risk navigating the ins and outs of the transaction on your own? If you had a $100,000 tax issue or a $100,000 legal problem, you certainly wouldn’t “go it alone” – you’d contact a CPA or attorney.

Here are a few reasons to use Bowen Agency, one of the most reputable Realtors® in Lewisburg PA.

We Know the Region

Collectively, our agents have hundreds of years of experience buying and selling real estate in Central PA. Our expertise starts with helping you determine the value of your home (if you’re selling) and your buying power (if you’re buying).

We already know the local lending institutions in this region and have the right contacts to make closing and negotiation a breeze. We are also very familiar with the area’s offerings, including school districts, amenities, tax rates, and neighborhoods, so we know how to market your home appropriate (if you’re selling) and how to find the right home for your needs (if you’re buying).

We Provide Honest Advice Throughout the Process

As you proceed through the process we will provide valuable insight and unbiased advice. We can give you information about appropriate home inspection services, local loan programs and rates, and act as a sounding-board throughout the process, from property walk-throughs and assessments to closing.

We Know Your Time is Valuable

Above all, we will provide feedback in a timely manner. If you contact us with a question or problem about a specific property or about the process in general, rest assured we will respond within 24 hours. When we are representing you during a sale, we’ll require acceptance or a counter offer within 24 to 72 hours.

We Are Experts at the Art of Negotiation

For better or worse, negotiation is almost always part of the home buying and selling process. The list price is a starting point, not an end all-be all. We have been at the center of hundreds of home sales, so we can navigate and take the lead on negotiating price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment.

We Know How to Find the Right Homes

It’s true that all Realtors® have access to the MLS and know how to list and search for homes using the MLS. But at Bowen, we know how to use the tools to find the right home for you in the shortest amount of time – and with the least amount of frustration on your part! If you’re a seller, we know how to navigate the MLS and other sources to market your home to the kind of buyer you’re looking for, since this is a diverse and complex market.

When the time comes for you to buy or sell a home, whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or seller or seasoned in the market, choose wisely. Choose Bowen Agency Realtors®.
