What Does A Maine Real Estate Agent Do?

Real Estate Agents in Maine help clients to purchase, rent, or sell property. This includes finding buyers and sellers, providing advice and helping to negotiate on price, and referring home inspectors or mortgage professionals - all within federal and state rules and regulations. Further, they are required to represent the best interests of their clients, whether they be buyers or sellers.

Additionally, depending upon whether representing the buyer or the seller, agents can recommend an appropriate selling price, market the property, negotiate offers, attending and/or reviewing the home inspection and appraisal, provide feedback on comparable sales.
