Yes, a real estate agent can help with property valuation. Property valuation is the process of determining the fair market value of a property, which is an essential step for both buyers and sellers in the real estate market.
Real estate agents have access to multiple listing services (MLS) and other real estate databases, which contain information on recent sales, current listings, and historical property data. They can use these resources to provide accurate and up-to-date property valuations.
It’s important to note that while real estate agents can offer valuable guidance on property valuation, the final decision on the price at which to list a property (for sellers) or make an offer (for buyers) ultimately lies with the property owner or buyer. Additionally, for more precise and detailed property appraisals, sellers and buyers may choose to hire a licensed real estate appraiser who can provide a formal appraisal report. Appraisers are trained professionals who provide independent and unbiased property valuations, often required for mortgage lending purposes.
