I was always skeptical about moving homes until I crossed paths with UpNest. I’ve had to deal with unprofessional agents in the past, whose strategies were a total mismatch of my visions. Also, the whole process of hiring an agent puts undue strain on my budget. For these reasons, the process of buying a home always gave me qualms.
At the beginning of this year, however, it became impossible to play possum to the fact that my family was outgrowing our 2-bedroom apartment. With our twins turning 5 in a couple of months and baby number three on the way, the exigencies of a more spacious living space kept hammering home.
I decided, therefore, that it was time to face what I hated most- dealing with real estate agents. This time around, I decided to do things differently. Instead of dealing with word of mouth referrals and adverts that didn’t guarantee the kind of servicing I wanted, I turned to a real estate agency. And not any standard agency, I opted to work with UpNest since I had already encountered some enthralling reviews about them.
First off, I was completely thrilled to discover that they don’t charge you anything for logging into their website.
The whole process is frugal, immersive, and completely worth your time. Experienced real estate agents compete to offer you top-notch services at very affordable rates, which I found outstanding compared to other real estate agencies.
You can decide to go through the Up Nest experience as a homebuyer and seller to get more insight into how they operate. Both processes are similar, though. I found it swift and simple to understand, and helped me get exactly what I was looking for.
As a seller, for example, all they need from you are the answers to the following questions:
How much is the estimated worth of your home?
What qualities do you prioritize in a real estate agent?
Through which platform do you prefer to receive the relevant proposals?
For buyers (like me), they need information such as:
The kind of property you desire to buy.
Whether you are starting the process from scratch, or it was underway before you resorted to UpNest.
Relevant lender information.
The communication process is very user-friendly, and I was impressed by the way they handled me. Once you have solid responses, they filter through their available data until they find potential agents whose qualifications match your desired standards.
The best part about UpNest is that they send you proposals of local agents who are familiar with your locality. It’s like they customize their proposals so that they directly match your buying or selling needs. Another perk is that if none of those proposals impress you, no one will bulldoze you into hiring an agent. You get to enjoy the liberties that come with unlimited options, including not choosing any. It’s all up to you.
UpNest also epitomizes transparency. In my case, all the commission rates were laid out from the beginning, and I didn’t have to pay anything on the side. The applications cover everything from past performances, transactions, reviews, detailed quotes, stats, and included services.
With such overflowing info, it’s a guarantee that you’ll hit the bull’s eye on your agent’s map because I did. The UpNest team was also willing to offer a hand whenever I had any inquiries; they didn’t disappear after I hired my agent. They also hold your privacy at a pedestal; hence you don’t have to worry about your personal data being mishandled.
To wrap it up, UpNest was my game changer, and for anyone thinking of buying or selling property soon, you should try it out. It saves you time, money, and exposes you to exceptionally skilled Real estate agents who have perfected their art. My particular agent worked along the lines I envisioned, and I’m forever grateful to UpNest for providing a bridge to my dream home.
