Benefits of Hiring a Realtor
Can you sell your own home? Of course you can. So the next question that comes to mind is why use a Realtor to sell your house.
Is it because you think you can save money on commission? Or is it because you enjoy the challenges that come along with a sale by owner?
Before you make your decision, please consider some of the challenges you will face if you don’t use a Realtor.
The very first pitfall you could experience is that the buyer’s agent may negotiate you down to a considerably lower sale price.
Since you most likely have limited access to marketing your exposure to potential buyers could be low. The longer your home sits on the market, the more buyers will attempt to “low-ball” you.
You could find yourself pricing your home either too low or too high.
Of course, there is always a safety concern when you allow complete strangers to wander your home with bad intentions.
Selling homes in the Phoenix Area is not just a full-time career, it’s my passion. With more than sixteen years of real estate, marketing and advertising experience, I provide home sellers with a wealth of experience and knowledge to properly sell their homes faster and for more money.
Do you really have the time to learn contract law, pricing the local housing market, placing accurate valuations on homes, online marketing, advertising to buyers and negotiating deals with thousands of dollars on the line? My goal is to free up your time so you can spend it with your family and friends.
PRODUCE REAL BUYERS
Agents produce real buyers. We filter all those crazy phone calls that lead to nowhere from the “lookie-loos”. We only have time for serious buyers who are WILLING AND ABLE to write an offer on your home immediately. We never give in to the countless games and pressure buyers and their agents throw at us.
Pricing homes is truly an art. Prices are determined by what a seller is willing to sell a home for and what a buyer is willing to pay for it. Listing agents help guide clients to make correct price choices and to weigh all the data supplied to them. My vested interest is in seeing you get the best deal possible.
ACCURATE MARKET DATA
Without an agent you would be flying blind. Never mind the evening news or local newspaper, if you need real estate sales data such as the average per square foot cost of similar homes, median and average sales prices, average days on the market and other criteria, an agent will be invaluable.
Real Estate is a people business. Not only do I provide excellent services to my clients, I treat them with respect. I even return calls and help anyway I can. You might find me at your BBQ or meet up with me for lunch. Or maybe a special gift reaches you in the mail. However I do it, I want you to know that you have a new friend.
Three More Reasons Why a Realtor Should Sell My House
STACKS OF PAPERWORK
Today’s home purchase agreements are over ten pages of legal clauses in Arizona. Then there’s the federal and state mandated disclosures and non-disclosures. Agents who belong to the National Association of Realtors are trained and retrained every two years how to interpret and complete these forms with a high level of competency. One small mistake or omission could land you in court or cost you thousands.
