Do Not Do it alone in Real Estate Negotiations


I have noticed some Sellers insist on selling their property on their own. When they were asked why they wanted to sell without being represented by an agent, there were several different reasons from saving money on commission to having done it before. So what are the top 10 reasons to hire a real estate agent to sell your property? Real estate agents . . . . 1. . . . have the education and the experience. Real estate agents must take classes and pass an exam before being licensed. They also must continue taking classes in order to renew their licenses. Each transaction is different. Having real estate experience helps to be knowledgeable. 2. . . . knowledge about the neighborhood and their niche. Having the knowledge about their neighborhood and/or niche helps greatly with pricing, area market, area recreation, stores, etc. 3. . . . network professionally. Networking is a big part of buying/selling properties. By networking, agents find reputable service people that can help in the real estate business. 4. . . . handle tons of paperwork, knowing what papers are required. As we all know, business involves paperwork. Agents know what paperwork is required for each situation. 5. . . . develop relationships for future business. The more people the agents know, the better chance of finding that buyer or that property. 6. . . . are buffers. Agents make sure qualified Buyers are able to see the properties so no one's time is wasted. 7. . . . give guidance on pricing real estate. Agents are aware of current area market conditions and are able two advise market value for your home. 8. . . . have information on the current market conditions. Real estate agents have access to current market conditions. 9. . . . have negotiation skills and confidentiality. Top producing agents are good negotiators and will get you the best price for your property. They will keep confidential the information that is not to be disclosed. 10. . . . answer questions and are there for you during the whole process. The agent will be there for you to take you through the whole home buying/selling process, educating you along the way so that you do not enter the transaction blindly. As you can see, there are great advantages to having a real estate agent represent you. We are there for you to look out after your best interests using our knowledge and experience.
