Why Hire a Real Estate Agent?

by Heidi on August 29, 2014

in Selling Your Home

Many people think they can go it alone when it comes to selling their home but there are many good reasons to hire a professional to do the job. Here are just a few of the many reasons to hire a real estate agent when selling your home:

According to a study done by the National Association of Realtors, a seller who uses a real estate agent typically gets 16% more in the sale of their home than an unrepresented seller.

It won’t cost you a dime unless the home sells. A real estate agent and their company take on all of the costs of marketing your home and don’t get paid unless the home sells.

Negotiating can be tough especially when it is your own home. Your agent will do all the negotiating for you.

Real estate paperwork can be confusing. Your agent will take of all the paperwork and make sure everything is done according to the laws in your area.

There is no emotion. Selling your home can be emotional and using a real estate professional will help you objectively evaluate offers and determine a selling price.

Just like any job it is always better to hire a professional.

“When you hire people that are smarter than you are, you prove you are smarter than they are.”  R.H. Grant
