Selling your home can be a stressful process but having an agent that you can trust will make it easier. Many people wonder if they should try to save money by selling their home themselves. Agents provide value in a number of ways and will make the selling process much easier for you in the long run.
3 ways a listing agent can save you money:
- Pricing: Pricing your home accurately is how you get it sold fast and for the most money. One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make when listing alone is overpricing the home. When you work with a Real Estate Agent, they will help set a proper list price. Your agent will have a grasp on the local real estate trends as well when determining an accurate price. Agents have access to data that you as a homeowner do not have that will ensure they are pricing the home correctly.
- Negotiations: One of the fastest ways to lose a deal is to approach negotiations with a closed mind. Sellers will always believe that their home is worth more than they are being offered and will begin to take things personally. Allowing your emotions to get in the way will push buyers away and often cause a deal to fall through. Your agent does not have the emotional connection to your home that you do. Your agent can detach and solely focus on getting you the best price for your home.
- Marketing: Real Estate Agents know the best marketing and selling techniques that will ensure your home is sold fast and for the most money. This alone saves the sellers money. When homeowners try to market their own property, they often do not understand the most effective platform to use. Using pointless marketing techniques is a waste or your money and time. Working with a Realtor who will pay for your marketing and who has an understanding of the best way to market your home is the way to go.
