Selling your home is a stressful process. There’s so much to do and plan. RE/MAX Select may be a little biased on this topic, but we’ve already worked with plenty of homeowners to know how best to help. Today, we’re going to list some of the benefits of letting a real estate agent, like our top real estate agents, help you sell your home.
There’s a lot to juggle with a home. Cleaners, visits from potential buyers, inspectors, the list goes on. On top of that, you’re probably still looking for a house yourself and still going to work. That’s a lot to keep on your plate. When you choose to work with a real estate agent, they pick up all the work around organizing your house sale and give you notice of when you need to be out of the home for a buyer or at the home for an inspection.
Further, most realtors have vetted contractors they can recommend, meaning you won’t have to spend a day looking up those answers yourself. If a contractor has made it to an agency’s recommended status, that means you know they’ll do a good job making your home the best it can be before it sells.
No Up-Front Fee
Real estate agents don’t charge an upfront cost for helping you sell your home, and there’s no on-going cost to have them keep helping. Agents get paid a portion of the final sale as their commission, which is why it’s in their best interest to help you sell your home and at a price you think is fair. If you’ve already moved into your new house, this means you won’t be paying extra to have to travel back to your old house either to buyers, as your realtor will always be in the area, saving you time and money.
Free Listing Management
There are a dozen and one home listing websites these days, and each one requires manually listing your home. When you work with a real estate agent, you can skip the hassle. Real estate companies will list your home on their website, and then on other house hunting websites for you as a part of working with them, meaning your home will get the maximum amount of visibility to potential buyers.
Just because you move doesn’t mean your realtor goes away. Like we said about the realtor’s commission before, it is in their best interest to help you sell your house. This means they’re going to continue to work with you to find buyers and to help make sure the whole process goes as smoothly as possible. Need to take a break from house tours so you can pack your home? Have an inspection planned in a few days? It’s a phone call away from blocking out time when you won’t be available. It’s your real estate agent’s job to help make this whole process as simple as it can be, and that means working with you through your schedule to make things work.
Access To An Expert
Real estate agents have been doing their job for a while, and before that, they were training to be licensed in it. This means you’ll have someone on hand who can help you make your home more appealing to buyers, when you should lower your price, and where would be a good place to set your price. This expertise isn’t limited to pricing though. Real estate agents have to be up-to-date on the legalities of selling a home. When you work with a realtor, you don’t have to worry about the paperwork and legalities. You can leave that to the experts.
