There are many reasons people decide not to hire a real estate agent when they are selling their home. The biggest factor is usually money. People think selling their home without an agent will get them the most cash in their pockets. They also might think they know everything it takes to sell a home because they’ve done a little research on the internet. However, hiring a real estate agent is the best decision to make when you decide to sell!
Knowing Your Home Value
There are a lot of tools out there that can provide you a home estimate. Ultimately, an estimate is all that number really is. A real estate agent will be able to provide you with the most accurate price of what your home is worth. Agents know the state of the current market, what similar homes have been going for and how long it has taken to sell those homes.
Saving You Time
For one, selling a home takes a lot of time and energy. You are already busy with your own job, so you shouldn’t have to add a bunch of extra work into your life. You would have to handle calls from interested buyers, you might need to leave work for a showing and there’s all kinds of paperwork that needs to be handled during the process. Real estate agents can take all of those tasks off your hands so you can have more free time to do the things you enjoy.
Real estate agents will do everything they can to promote your listing. They will have a listing website created for your property, promote your listing on social media, use mail pieces to send to potential buyers and much more. They know the best practices to get your listing in front of the right people so you can get your home sold as fast as possible.
As mentioned previously, agents will handle the tasks necessary to sell your home. One of the most important things they can offer you is their negotiation experience. It’s their job to try and get you the best possible offer. They are able to do that with their negotiation skills they have mastered throughout their real estate career.
From saving you loads of time to getting you the best offer on your home, it just makes sense to hire a real estate agent.
