Selling your home without a Realtor is tempting, here are four reasons why a Realtor helps.
Profit On average, Realtor’s bring higher profits, enough to cover the commission and then some. Statistics from Realtor.org.
Negotiation A Realtor can help you negotiate a contract that not only garners you an appropriate price for your home, but that meets your needs for a settlement date and perhaps includes a period when you rent back your home from your buyer. In addition, a Realtor can make sure your contract is in compliance with all local regulations.
Convenience A Realtor can show your home when you aren’t available, can respond to inquiries from potential buyers and their agents, and can get valuable feedback from visitors – all things that save you time.
Objective A Realtor can look at your home objectively and suggest ways to improve its appearance. Buyers also prefer to look at a home without the seller present.
