There are many reasons to hire to a Realtor. Just a few reasons are:
A real estate agent knows the market and can make sure as a seller client your home is priced right, generate buyer interest and sell quickly for top dollar.
A real estate agent has a professional network of handymen, inspectors, attorneys, mortgage professionals, painters, etc. and often times it can take this entire team of professionals to get a home through closing no matter which side you’re on.
A real estate agent is constantly updating their marketing techniques and skills. With adequate marketing, your listing will get maximum exposure; like getting on the MLS.
Ready and Qualified Buyers
A real estate agent can bring serious and qualified buyers, unlike a For Sale By Owner. Without a Realtor, are you prepared and dedicated to handle showings, any issues that arise, paperwork, and everything else that comes with selling your home?
A real estate agent has been through the process numerous times and can provide guidance you need while reviewing the information and helping you understand the large amounts of paperwork.
A real estate agent can take the emotions out during the process of selling a home, providing objective advice and professionally negotiate with the buyer.
A real estate agent constantly updates themselves on the complicated rules and regulations that are forever changing; whether it is encroachment issues, septic concerns, homeowner association rules, or a myriad of other governing topics. Agents are held to a higher standard than an individual unlicensed.
