The Value of a Real Estate Agent
Do you know the VALUE of a Century 21 Energy Shield Real Estate Professional? Why hire a Real Estate Agent to help sell your home? Do you have the time, experience, sources of information, and contacts to do the job yourself? Would it go as smooth as it could? Would it give you more personal time? Would you obtain a higher price? Here are just a few areas in which a professional Real Estate Agent earns his or her commission and helps you as a seller reap the benefits.
A Professional’s insight in determining a pricing strategy for your property can keep you from missing an opportunity by undervaluing or wasting time by overpricing. Experience evaluating competing properties and market trends is the first ingredient for the best transaction
Preparations: Your agent is skilled in recommending repairs or cosmetic work that have proven to minimize time on the market and maximize both prospect interest and sales price
Exposure to the Public: Your agent will know best how to use flyers, open house days, and especially mailing to and meeting with ex-clients and other qualified buyers. Your agent will utilize a Multiple Listing Service once your property is listed. It is statistically likely the buyer will be the client of another agent associated with yours.
Advertising: Media and Frequency. It takes experience to know what works in advertising. Ads generate phone calls to the real estate office, but overexposure of a property in any media may give a buyer the wrong impression. Advertising alone will not sell your property, agents sell property. I can offer a customized marketing plan fro your home with a large array of advertising opportunities.
Working with a Century 21 Energy Shield Real Estate agent ensures that all showings will be supervised. This protects all of your valuables.
Most buyers prefer to negotiate with someone they perceive as unbiased, not emotional involved, and professionally trained. They are more likely to express objections to agents with the hope of resolution, when they otherwise might move one to another property rather than talk to you directly. Real Estate Agents evaluate proposals privately without compromising your marketing position.
Settling and Closing
The process of appraisals, inspections, and financing involves a lot of possible pitfalls. There are many required legal forms and processes. Your agent is the best person to help you through all the paperwork and move the transaction to closing. .
