Needing to sell your home, but don’t know where to start? You steadily ruminate onif you should get a realtor or try to sell yourself. Let’s look at a few details to help determine what is best for you.
You need to price the house within the best price bracket. There are other factors to consider than just the overall value of the house. Remember the old phrase, “Location, location,location”? The location of your home can drive the price up or down by more than a little. A good realtor has their finger on the pulse of the market and should know what other houses near you are selling for, giving you the best price for where your home is.
Do you have the time to devote to showing your home to prospective buyers? You may be limiting your prospect list if you work a 9-5 job and can only show on weekends or after work. A realtor has the ability to show your home at any time, which means more potential buyers are being exposed to your home.
Do you know the best places to advertise the sale of your home? An agent should know the best path to maximize your selling potential and gain exposure to as many potential buyers as possible. A good realtor will have reliable contacts to get your home ready for sale. This isn’t even mentioning you getting to avoid the red tape and paperwork that comes with selling your home, which can be quite tedious and stress-inducing.
Potential customers could try to lowball you to boost their savings by dipping their hands into your pockets. Having a reputable and experienced realtor will, more often than not, cause potential customers to begin with reasonable offers, instead of wasting your time with haggling with unreasonable expectations. A realtor takes a lot of the stress away during the negotiations.
After seeing that a realtor is the best way to go in selling your home, there are a few things to ask about when selecting your realtor.
• Of the homes they have sold, how many were sold above original list price? What about below list price?
• In what ways will they utilize the internet to sell your home?(A lot of realtors may use Facebook and Twitter, but look for ones that include Instagram, Snap Chat, and Pinterest)
• Do they have Errors and Omissions Insurance (This is a form of liability insurance which helps protect professional advice and service-providing individuals and companies from bearing the full cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client, and damages awarded in such a civil lawsuit)
• How many homes do they currently have on the market?
• Look for online reviews from realtors that serve your area (Watch out for less than 5 star reviews and keep an eye on a review that talks about being scammed)
Realtors are used to help make life more bearable when selling a home. Selecting the right realtor can be the difference between sailing through calm waters or going down with the Titanic. Besure to ask questions enabling you to makeinformed decisions to get the best realtor for your needs. Always remember, it’s better to pay a small commission than to lose out on thousands of dollars. In the end, with a realtor on your side and real expectations, you should be saved time, money, and headaches. You may also make a little extra money if your realtor is skilled at negotiating.
