Choosing the best agent for the job is important... Most sellers choose to work with a REAL ESTATE AGENT. You certainly don't have to, but here are good reasons why most people still use a LOCAL REALTOR®. We can give you 134 reasons (seriously) but here are the top 4 reasons why you should use a REALTOR® to sell your home.
Pricing is a real art. The biggest factor in determining how quickly your home sells is the price. Deciding that price is trickier than it seems. It takes experience and even 1% more for your home can mean thousands on your bottom line.
Negotiating is hard Not just hard to do, but it can feel uncomfortable. If you want someone to negotiate fearlessly on your behalf you need an agent.
Marketing is more than MLS To get the most for your home you need as many buyers interested as possible. According to REALTOR.CA, 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts.
Showings and paperwork are a pain Theres more to the legal side of a home sale than you think, and showing your own home is not only awkward, it can really complicate your schedule. An agent takes away the burden of all of these things, and works to get your home sold for the best price in the fastest time. After all- you've got a life to live!
