The home selling process can often be described as stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Working with a REALTOR® when listing your property can benefit you in many ways.
1. Deciding on an asking price.
Agents will estimate the value of your property by performing a Comparative Market Analysis. The asking price is crucial, as this is the first thing buyers look at. Pricing your property too high or too low could result in an outcome you might not be satisfied with.
2. Marketing, marketing, marketing.
Agents can help to ensure that active buyers see your property. Some ways include utilizing Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), open houses (face-to-face contact), professional photos, and using social media platforms. Marketing your property well will reduce the number of days your house stays on the market. Wide internet exposure will help sell your house quicker!
3. Negotiation of counter offers.
Negotiation expertise might be needed, especially if you receive multiple offers. When selling your house, you want to be sure that nothing gets left on the table. Leave this up to the listing agent so you don’t have to worry.
