Why Sellers use a REALTOR®?

 

When selling your home without a REALTOR®, the trading process can be tough, complicated and time-consuming. When price is too high, you’ll discourage potential buyers; but when price is too low you’re not doing yourself any favors. A good REALTOR® can guide you through every step of process; by providing you with a comparative market analysis (CMA). The CMA gives you an idea on past sales in your neighborhood and homes that are current still on the market. With help from an expert REALTOR®, you’ll know the price of your home.

Preparing your home to attract potential buyers, your REALTOR® can recommend repairs as much as you can within reason or maintenance work that will significantly enhance the salability of your home.

When you use a REALTOR® to list your home, your REALTOR® will provide you services and their professional marketing plan. A good REALTOR® will advertise your home to the public and his personal network contacts. Marketing plan may include real estate newspaper advertising, local newspaper advertising, internet exposure, putting a sign on your property, mail flyers, and Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to reach the potential buyers. 

Your REALTOR® will also list your home through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as part of marketing plan. Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a system, which all the REALTOR® will have access to. When you listed on MLS, your property will also be listed on Realtylink public website and newspaper.

When your home goes live on the market, your REALTOR® has duty to schedule appointments to show your home, open house, follow-up calls with potential buyers, follow-up calls to give you update, and negotiate on your behalf to get you top dollar. 

Your REALTOR® has duty to fully understanding of the legal contact and obligations involve with selling your home. A good REALTOR® will also suggest you to seek advice experts such as lawyer, mortgage broker, and home inspector. With a REALTOR® on your side, selling your home can be a pleasant and exciting experience
