Do you even need a real estate agent in Crested Butte in today's modern world?

There are three reasons why you still need a real estate agent:

1. Contracts
2. Second job
3. Stress and cooperation.

Let's jump into number 1 really quickly.

Real Estate Contracts in Crested Butte

Real estate is a game of contracts. There is nothing that occurs with a sale of a home without an executed contract. Believe me when I say that there is a lot of legal language in each of these documents. Are you willing to negotiate against a buyer or a seller or their agent who may have years of negotiating and understanding these contracts.

 As well, there is a potential of putting your earnest funds at risk and/or even your entire contract which could open you up to a liability of a suit. I don’t want to get crazy here and talk about all the things that could happen but it’s just that it’s really important when you’re dealing with a very large purchase with very real legally binding documents.
