Working alongside a professional to get you into your next home, or sell your current home, is a must! At times it can be enticing to skip the middle man with hopes of saving some cash. In most states sellers are obligated to pay all broker’s fees associated with the transaction. This means that an individual who is selling their home is not only required to pay their agent that helps them list their home for sale, but also the agent who procures the sale by bringing a buyer to the table. Therefore, it is in homebuyer’s best interest to have a professional work on your behalf to do all the “heavy lifting.”
When it comes to listing your home for sale, the benefits of working with an agent to get your home sold is major. Not only does the agent facilitate the actual process of putting your home on the market, which means you don’t have to do it, they also should be leveraging their knowledge and expertise to market your home more effectively than you would be able to on your own. The benefits of marketing your home for sale are endless. Market awareness of your home is the most pivotal part of the sale of the property. When an agent markets your home for sale, they can assess your home and the market to position your home accordingly. Your agent can work with you to market your home for sale through the actual presentation of your property, and the methods, platforms, and mediums used to make the market aware of your listing. When it comes to selling your home, working with an agent to properly market your home will maximize your property’s exposure to different markets of consumers. Increasing the number of eyes on your property will benefit the sales process, and eventually your wallet! There is a direct relationship between visibility, interest, demand, and competition. The more visibility your home gets, the more interest it will garner, increasing demand, which creates competition between interested buyers. An agent can help you navigate these steps to maximize your profit.
A large benefit of working with a real estate agent is having professional guidance throughout the entire buying or selling process. This guidance can start with your agent suggesting a few lenders to seek out a pre-approval letter, and remain with you through home visits, the offering/bidding process, escrow arrangements, inspections, and all the way through to closing. A real estate agent’s expertise and network imperative in getting your listing sold.
