Benefits of Using a Realtor
to Sell your Home
your home is a complex process that can be stressful and time-consuming. An experienced Realtor has the knowledge,
skills, and connections to help you through the process every step of the way. Consider the following benefits of working
with a Realtor:
With knowledge and training in marketing
strategy, negotiation tactics, and the workings of the current real estate
market, a Realtor will be able to guide you through the steps of the
home-selling process and be able to explain exactly what to expect. S/he will make you aware of your rights and
responsibilities, work with you to strategize the best moves according to your
own goals, discuss financing options, and point you in the direction of other
specialized professionals who will aid you in different stages of the process.
Realtors have their fingers on the pulse of
the current real estate market, and will know what comparable properties in
your area are selling for. They have the
resources and knowledge to establish the best asking price and to attract the
highest selling price. With access to
their company’s professional marketing resources and connections, they will
ensure potential buyers are immediately made aware of your home and market the
property to sell as quickly as possible and for the most money.
Your Realtor will know the importance of a
property’s first impression. S/he will
have experienced first-hand, for example, the impact a property’s “drive-up
appeal” has on the rest of a potential Buyer’s experience of your home. Your Realtor will be able to offer you tips
and information on how to get your home in the best selling shape possible, in
order to sell your property quickly and for top dollar.
to Qualified Buyers:
Realtors save time and effort by dealing
only with qualified buyers. They have
access to a pool of pre-screened and pre-qualified buyers who are serious about
buying a home in your neighbourhood. Realtors work hard to develop this base of
qualified buyers which will become an invaluable resource for you.
Realtors serve many functions, but perhaps
the most important is their role as primary negotiator on your behalf. Your Realtor realizes your goal is to sell
your home as quickly as possible, and for the most money possible, and will work
closely with you during the negotiation process to facilitate this goal. Realtors bring to the process the knowledge
and skills to draw up legally binding contracts, to assist in negotiating
offers and counter-offers, and to offer counsel and perspective as you work
toward your selling goals.
