Showing & Marketing Your Home
There are definitely many ways to getting your house ready to sell. Potential buyers are going to be walking through the inside and outside of their home and picturing their themselves and their personal belongings in the space. An agent can help you determine what is the best way to get your how "show" ready and make it stand out better than similar properties on the market. Should repairs be done before listing? These are questions that a selling agent can help you answer.
A licensed real estate agent is going to have more reach when it comes to the audience they can/will market to. Especially to buyers that already have agents. They can also do all the pre-screening of potential buyers making sure that they are actually qualified to purchase a home. Agents can manage showing schedules and buyer feedback after your house has been shown. Having an agent will also increase the amount of showings you will get, mainly because you will not have to be present for your house to be shown. These are all very valuable things that can be utilized and offered when listing with an agent.
