Should I Hire a Real Estate Agent?
There is no denying that the market is hot right now, however, there are many reasons that it is in your best interest to hire a real estate agent when it comes to buying or selling a home.
Did you know it does not cost you anything to have a member of our team represent you as a buyer in a real estate transaction? In most cases, the seller and seller’s agent pay a commission to the buyer’s agent. In this market, you are going to want to have an experienced agent on your side to be competitive to sellers.
First things first, our agents will help you get your home ready to sell and also help you decide on a price you are comfortable listing your home at. We will suggest home improvements to raise your price, help with staging, point out housing-code, or zoning violations, and more. We know the market and have access to data about recent sales in your neighborhood. We will look at market supply, demand, and the conditions of your home, and suggest pricing accordingly to lead to a quick sell that gets you top dollar.
We also have access to the MLS. The MLS is a database of the current homes that are for sale. By hiring an agent, your home will appear in the MLS, instantly giving access to agents across the area. If you try to sell your home by yourself, it may not appear in the MLS. If it does not appear in the MLS, a buyers’ agent may not know your home is out there. This immediately takes a lot of potential buyers off the table.
In addition to what we discussed above, we handle all of the marketing, open houses, paperwork, negotiations, and more! Ready to list your home, start your home search, or both?
