Why Hire a Pro
Selling your home can be a very stressful process and it's one many people don't like doing on their own. REALTORS® are professionals who can help you not only make a sale, but also increase the amount you earn on it. When looking for a REALTOR®, it can be hard to know where to start. Here are a few reasons to hire a professional real estate agent and tips on how to find the right one to help you sell your home.

Six Reasons To Hire A REALTOR®

  1. Industry Experience
    The real estate industry is a complex one. It is full of highly specific rules, documentation, laws and professional terminology. Improperly filling of one of the many required forms when selling a home can lead to a delay of sale or even penalties. Given the complexities of the industry, you want a professional working on it.

  2. Negotiating
    Selling anything can get complicated--especially with big budget items like a home. When selling real estate you are very likely to get competing offers, buyers bidding against each other, potential buyers trying to drive your asking price down, all cash offers and more. When dealing with negations (which can be heated) you want an expert on your side.

  3. They Know The Market
    Unless you've been closely following home sales in your area, it can be difficult knowing how to value your home or how much it will realistically sell for. A professional real estate agent knows what the local market's asking price is along with other factors that influence prices such as schools, crime rate, and the local demographics.

  4. Networking
    As industry professionals, REALTORS® have contacts with companies that work in real estate. These companies provide services that you may need when selling a home. Your real estate agent can easily advise you on which companies offer the best services and pricing saving you a lot of time on research.

  5. The Little Things: A REALTOR® manages the parts of the home selling process you may not have the time or desire to handle. Things such as showing your home to interested buyers, fielding phone calls or dealing with the notable amount of associated paperwork.

  6. REALTORS® Are Held To High Standards.
    REALTORS® are licensed trade professionals who belong to the National Association of Realtors. This means they follow a strict code of ethics assuring professionalism and that they put your interests first.

How To Find A REALTOR®

  1. Consult Your Personal Network
    Ask friends, family and co-workers if they have any experience with any local real estate agents. Feedback both good and bad can guide you to a REALTOR® or tell you who to avoid.

  2. Look Online
    Savvy real estate professionals typically have a good internet presence. Look for a professional-looking website, blogs and postings on social media to show if a real estate agent is not only an effective sales associate, but is also aware of current technology trends.

  3. Ask The Right Questions
    When interviewing real estate agents, be sure to ask the right questions. Questions to ask include: ow long have you been in business, the amount of and percentage of sales, list price versus sale price, advertising expenses and marketing strategies.
