WHY DO YOU NEED A REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL

ARE YOU THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME ON YOUR OWN?
Do you have the time, money, and contacts to properly market your home? Would you get the best price for your home? Do you have the time to wait for the phone to ring then allowing strangers who may not be able to afford your home come in and waste your time?
Here’s how a Realtor can help you sell your home from pricing it correctly, to marketing, negotiating, renegotiating and closing while netting you the most money in your pocket.

A REALTOR:
Knows the current real estate market and helps you price your home realistically.
Is familiar with mortgage loans and can assist you when deciding which loan is best for you.
Can point out and make suggestions on preparing your home to sell.
Will show your home to qualified buyers
Can familiarize you with the closing costs and procedures by explaining them and attend the closing with you

UTILIZING AN AGENT MEANS:
No unescorted, unqualified buyers will enter your home.
Your home will be marketed to the fullest.
You are no longer sitting by the phone waiting for it to ring.
The sale will result in a higher net profit.

This is just a brief summary of what a real estate professional can do for you.

The bottom line:
Your Realtor works for you and with you throughout the home selling process. If your home does not sell the Realtor does not get paid. So trust that he/she will be working hard to sell your home.

Think about it.

Not using a realtor to sell your house means you can drop the price of your home by $40,000-$50,000 and sell your house more quickly.
