Yes – You Still Need a Qualified Realtor!
Were you considering saving money on your listing by doing the work yourself? While it’s true that anyone can list or shop for a house without formally signing a qualified real estate agent, a realtor will help you at every stage – from setting a price to marketing your property to closing the sale. Check out these reasons why experts still recommend using a qualified realtor for buying and selling your home.
First, all real estate licensees are not equal! Only agents that are members of the National Association of Realtors are called Realtors. As such, we pledge to uphold a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain the highest level of knowledge of the buying and selling process. Make sure your realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors.
Your real estate agent knows the neighborhood! They can give you up-to-date information on the current happenings in your local marketplace, as well as pertinent information on competing properties. These are key factors in selling your home for the best price! Plus, your agent can advise repairs or cosmetic work that will substantially enhance the salability of your property.
Additionally, a qualified real estate agent has a marketing plan in mind. This marketing plan will affectively expose your property to the proper audiences as well as other real estate agents though a multiple listing service. Qualified agents know when, where, and how to advertise in the frequency that works best for your market. Lastly, a qualified real estate agent brings a sense of security to your home. We prescreen and accompany qualified prospects before they step foot on your property.
