Your home is a very valuable asset to you and you will maximize your return when you sell it. Some people want to try and save the real estate commission and market their own property. Research has proven that sellers who employ a professional real estate agent end up with more money from the sale of their home and the possibility of a problem or lawsuit as a result of the transaction is greatly reduced.
You employ a professional to advise you on stocks and other investments, do your tax return, handle various legal matters and many other tasks. Marketing real estate is just as complex.
The prospect of a timely sale will be greatly enhanced by employing a professional. The cost of owning a home (insurance, taxes, utilities, repairs, and interest on your investment) for six months will usually be more than the fee a real estate agent would charge. In addition, you don’t have the hassle of dealing with a lot of buyers that are not sure of what they are looking for. Most people don’t buy three or four homes in a lifetime and need considerable assistance throughout the home buying process. Contracts must be prepared to meet buyer and seller needs, financing arrangements made, and many other details to get the property through escrow must be taken care of.
Now that you have made the smart choice to have a professional help you maximize your return, how do you decide which one to use? Some of the things you should ask are:
