Thinking of Listing Your House For Sale?
Why should you list your house with a real estate agent versus doing a "For Sale By Owner?" Agents understand the market better and can typically list the house at the correct price. This gives home owners an advantage over listing the property themselves. Zillow and other methods of getting a home estimate online are not always accurate. Relying on that information can cause your home to either sit on the market with no offers or receive less than what your house is actually worth. Agents ensure better pricing and have access to more information.
Presenting a home matters now more than ever. Real estate agents make sure that these presentations go smoothly. They also have tons of experience in how to get your home "show" ready. In today’s market, it really matters how a home is presented, especially with technology. Online photos are your home's first impression and having an agent can help make the right first impression.
Buyers often contact a real estate agent before looking at properties. Your home will get more showings and offers by listing with an agent due to the tools at an agent's disposal. Agents are crucial to accessing these buyers who are shopping with other agents.
Agents also make sure that all aspects of the buying process is handled in a professional manner and done correctly. Having an experienced real estate agent can dramatically impact the offers you receive from buyers and can effectively help you navigate and understand the paperwork that comes with selling a home. There is a lot of paperwork that has to be completed throughout the closing process and an agent handles all this. If issues arise during any step of the process, your agent will be there every step of the way.
