For Sale By Owner (FSBO) properties are common all around Hawaii and the mainland. It has become common practice recently for people to sell and buy their houses directly. It can reduce costs, and thanks to the Internet, it’s easier to do now than ever. However, buying and selling on your own is not always cost-effective, and is much more difficult than many people realize. Hiring a Hawaii real estate agent will save you lots of time, and probably lots of money too.
Benefits of using a Hawaii Real Estate Agent
There’s a reason why even experienced real estate agents on the mainland choose to hire Hawaii real estate agents when buying or selling personal property on the island.

More Effective Negotiations
People think doing the transaction directly between the seller and the buyer is easier. Negotiations, however, are stressful and complicated, and it can be easy to be taken advantage of. All to often, a buyer or seller winds up at the bad end of the deal, paying more (or receiving less) than they would have if they had just paid realtor’s commission.
Contracts are tiring and time consuming, even for the simplest of transactions. If you are buying a house, your realtor will make sure the contract provides all of the legal protections that you require — potentially saving you thousands of dollars or more should something go awry.
