Real estate agents—the helping hand that sellers too often convince themselves they don’t need. And while it’s certainly possible to sell your home on your own, why not first take into consideration the perks of having a real estate agent?
1. They do the communicating so you don’t have to. Maybe you aren’t okay with the buyer’s offer, but aren’t sure how to negotiate a better deal. Simply tell your real estate agent that you want a higher offer, and your real estate agent will work around the clock on both ends to ensure transactional communication!
2. They act as your guide. The business of selling your home on the real estate market can be a murky one, which is why your real estate agent is there to help guide you through all the rules, regulations and documentation of the selling process so that when you get to the closing table, everything is in order!
3. They give you access to their networks. Any real estate agent worth their salt will have worked with a great number of agencies. They may know someone who can help you or your possible buyer with a specific situational need – speeding up the process in a more efficient way!
4. They have insider neighborhood knowledge. Your real estate agent has more than likely been to your neighborhood before and may know of lesser or greater competition influencing your home and the overall market.
At the end of the day, your real estate agent shares the same goal as you! You have a lot going on in your life, whether professionally or personally, and it may take twice as long to sell your property on your own. Save yourself the headache and consider hiring a professional real estate agent.
