How To Sell Homes Fast For Top Dollar: Chapter 15 – Why Hire a Real Estate Agent?

This book is full of information on how to sell your home. You now have a basic knowledge of setting a listing price, online marketing, staging, and negotiation. Isn’t this enough to do the job yourself? Homeowners wonder if they could sell a home through online or traditional marketing and advertising channels, without a real estate agent.

Try this analogy. You were given a book on investment strategy for your birthday and read it. The stock market is at all-time highs, but there are political and business factors that roil the markets. There are weeks of 300-point gains and of 400-point losses.

The question: Are you ready to handle your own stock market or mutual fund investing? Do you have the expertise necessary, and can you handle the emotional roller- coaster of seeing thousands of dollars of your money come and go?

The truth is, without a professional on your side, there’s a good chance you won’t sell. Even if you do, individual sellers often sell for less than those who hire a Realtor.

This is what we’ll be discussing in Chapter 15 of How To Sell Homes Fast For Top Dollar that you can read online

Why Hire a Real Estate Agent?

For sellers, it can seem overwhelming to know how to anticipate and coordinate every step necessary to prepare your home to show, list, market, and sell. An experienced real estate professional who is knowledgeable in all phases of real estate can make the process much easier. You do not need real estate expertise if you engage a professional who has it.

No matter how long you have lived in your home, a real estate professional in the local area will know considerably more about the sale price history and market trends than you do. Since real estate agents are paid a percentage of your selling price, it’s in their best interest to price it perfectly. They want to earn the highest commission possible, but they also want to earn a commission within a reasonable amount of selling time.

Real estate agents network with various contractors and professionals. They can advise on service providers’ reputation and provide references who have previously worked with providers.

Agents either possess intimate knowledge about your area or they have the contacts and resources to find the necessary information. They can identify comparable sales and find more demographic and statistical information than the average person.

Attempting to sell your home without an agent requires a major effort, resources, and countless hours understanding and organizing all the work.
