Why You Should Use an Agent to Sell Your Home

You Should Use a Real Estate Agent to Sell Your Home
 
Selling your home is a big endeavor that should include working with an expert real estate professional. To compensate the agent for their time and expertise a portion of the money you receive upon the home sale will be used to compensate the real estate agent. Commissions can be difficult to justify when selling your home. Along with helping you stay objective an agent guides you through the selling process. Here’s a list of reason why you should use a real estate agent to sell your home.


1. Real Estate Agents Possess Overall Market Knowledge:


As you begin the process of selling your home you want to have an expert that can guide you through the process. A real estate agent has access to a variety of data about recent home sales in your neighborhood, which will allow you to price your home accordingly. Along with this, agents can access your local MLS. Your home will be included in the MLS and the Realtor will promote your home throughout the Internet.


2. Real Estate Agents Are Trained in the Many Legalities of Selling a Home


Selling your home is one of the largest transactions you’ll make, so make sure you don’t miss a step in the process. During the selling process there is tons of paperwork that needs to be completed. A real estate professional ensures selling your home will go smoothly and will also be able to alert you should problems arise with the potential buyer.

3. Real Estate Agents Are Able to Network & Coordinate Showings

Putting your home for sale cannot become your full time job--it will be difficult to get home from work for showings, make flyers, etc. A real estate agent becomes your marketing specialist and will be able to run open houses, set up showings, and other marketing activities to get your house seen by interested buyers. Agents are typically connected to other agents, so are able to provide referrals that help you get a quick sale.


4. Real Estate Agents Assist with Pricing to Sell, Negotiation, & Inspections/Diligence

Negotiating is tricky. While you may think it would be easier to not have the middle men (the buyer and seller real estate agents) the negotiation is not always easy. Be prepared. Having an agent acting as your representative in the process prevents disagreements that could result in a deal being pulled from the table. Once you are under contract the agent will have many recommendations to assist with any final details to get you to the closing table.

Selling your home can be a long process that ends in a significant financial transaction. A real estate professional is a huge benefit to you during the process. The expertise of an agent allows you to better navigate the rocky waters and end up on the other side with a transaction with your best interests in mind.
