So, you have made the first step in selling your home – deciding it is time. While a big decision, there is still lots to come, and enlisting the help of a trained real estate professional can help you make the most of the decision.
Here are some reasons why teaming up with a real estate agent can really pay off, especially now.
Everyone is busy these days
Real estate is a full-time job in itself, so it makes sense to work with a real estate professional who can help you navigate the changing market and guide you throughout every step of the home-selling process.
And let’s not forget the reason you’re listing your home in the first place – you’re hoping it sells quickly and for the highest price! A real estate agent can ensure that those who want to view your home are qualified buyers and provide a smooth transaction experience from listing to closing.
Your biggest fan
When working with an agent, they become your biggest fan and are by your side throughout the entire transaction process, advocating on your behalf, including negotiating the best possible selling price for your home. That means you won’t have to worry about an emotional connection between you and the buyer over how much you think your house is worth.
A real estate agent also can point out things you may have missed about your home that a potential buyer would likely notice, enabling you to fix them on the front end to save you time during the selling process.
They know the trends
The knowledge of a trained agent is invaluable. Allowing this person to shine in their own wheelhouse is, once again, in your best interest because they have a wide range of contacts within the industry. In addition, an experienced agent with knowledge of the local area can move through the process confidently and smoothly.
They have the skills and tools
Real estate professionals know that the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is one of their biggest assets. Listing your home on this platform, available only to professional agents, increases your chances of it being seen and hopefully selling faster. Taking advantage of an agent’s resources can also make it easier for other agents to spot your listing, so they can pass it along to their potential buyers.
Real estate agents also have the advantage of referring you to trusted parties you will need to sell your home. When you work with Michael Saunders & Company sales associates, they will connect you with a team of in-house experts in our mortgage, insurance and title divisions, ensuring you receive a seamless full homeownership experience from start to finish.
Lastly, an experienced agent will take of all the contract details, which can be difficult and overwhelming to handle alone.
To sum it up
Deciding to sell your home is a big decision. A Michael Saunders & Company agent can help you achieve the best results.
