The Process Experts estimate there are no less than 230 potential actions that will be taken for every successful real estate sale. Don’t you want to take them with someone who already knows the entire process by heart? Negotiations So maybe you still don’t believe you need an agent when you sell your home. However, once you have seen the list of parties that you have to negotiate with, you will soon understand the significance of professional help. You have to talk to at least 11 different people, from your potential buyer (who also wants the most favorable deal for himself) to home inspectors to the appraiser and all the rest. These people are all experts in the real estate industry, and even the buyer is probably working with an agent. Again, how can you match their negotiating prowess? Setting the Price It is crucial for your home to be priced properly right from the start so as to attract the right buyers, as well as cut the time that it stays on the market. You need someone with no emotional connection to your home, but has the necessary knowledge to assign it the right value. To put it simply, when you overprice your home, it will attract very few buyers, and may stay on the market for so long people will start assuming it has flaws. Underpricing, on the other hand, will leave you on the losing end of the sale. That’s why need an expert to draw the lines. Market Trends So much information is out there regarding home prices, sales, mortgage rates and the like. How do you know which one applies to your area specifically? Whom can you consult when trying to price your property competitively as you start the selling process? When in need of help related to money, pick someone who is less of a salesman and more of a teacher. You need someone who will blurt out the truth and not lie for the sake of pleasing you.
