Why should I hire a real estate agent instead of selling my house on my own?
Over 90% of sellers use a real estate agent because selling a home takes time, you need knowledge of neighborhood trends, and excellent negotiating skills. Although while eliminating the real estate company’s commission on the final the sale price may seem appealing but you’ll do well if you manage to resist.
Part of an agent’s responsibilities are to help set the right price and then get interested buyers into the property. Agents have access to the most up-to-date information about recent sales of comparable homes (“comps”) and want other listings are priced at per s/f in your neighborhood. “The market is always moving every day. It’s the real estate company’s and agent responsibility to keep in tune with those changes,” says Sherry Fell, Agent/Broker of 5 County Real Estate in Sunrise, Florida.
An exceptional real estate agent does not need to spend every hour of the day on selling your home because he or she is efficient, practiced and able to choose what to do and when with accuracy. You will be new at selling a home, which means every step will have a learning curve, and you will not have the opportunity to practice – to fail and improve – to reach the level of a professional.
The very best agents will aggressively market your home. That means recommending touch ups and spruce ups, maximizing the listing with professional-quality photographs, and showing the house to prospective buyers. Most importantly, the agent will vet potential buyers so you can deal only with serious buyers.
