Most sellers use a real estate agent — and for good reason! In most cases, your home is your most valuable asset, and it makes sense to use a professional. A skilled agent can ensure your home sells quickly and for the best price, while making the entire process much easier for you. Furthermore, a great real estate agent will provide key market insights, sound advice and save you endless hours of time — all while helping you reduce the stress of a large transaction.
1. PRICING IS A REAL ART
The biggest factor in determining how quickly your home sells is the price, and deciding that price is trickier than it seems. It takes experience and even 1% more for your home can mean thousands to your bottom line.
2. NEGOTIATING IS HARD
Not just hard to do, but it can feel uncomfortable. If you want someone to negotiate fearlessly on your behalf, you need an agent.
3. MARKETING TODAY IS MUCH MORE THAN MLS®
To get the most for your home, you need qualified buyers to see it. That requires an agent who knows how to create a marketing plan to get as many qualified buyers as possible to find out about and view your property.
4. SHOWINGS ARE A PAIN
Showing your own home is not only a huge inconvenience to you, it’s important to know that most buyers feel uncomfortable viewing a home with the homeowner present.
5. PAPERWORK TAKES EXPERTISE
If you think doing your own taxes is a challenge, try navigating the paperwork for a real estate transaction! It takes experience and expertise to make sure everything is done correctly.
