WHY WORK WITH A SELLER'S AGENT?

When selling your home, it's important to make sure you have a professional on your side. Trying to sell your home yourself or working with a family member who sells real estate part time is not always the best call if you need to sell your home quickly and for the highest possible price. Working with a real estate agent who has in-depth knowledge of the area, innovative marketing expertise, and world class training will make your home selling process smooth and hassle-free.

There are many key reasons that a buyer needs to work with a real estate agent when selling their home. The top 5 include:

  1. Perhaps the most important reason to hire a real estate agent to sell your home is the many legal aspects of selling a home that you will be held accountable for if you do not have a licensed agent to handle the paperwork. Real estate is one of the most frequently sued industries in the United States and many owners who try to sell their home themselves don't even realize that they lack documents they need to protect themselves legally. An agent can ensure your contract is in compliance with all local regulations.

  2. An agent can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis which is a detailed profile of what your home should be priced at based on a multitude of factors including location, condition, and the market. The price estimate on sites like Zillow and Realtor.com are often off by as much as 35%. 

  3. Only a real estate agent can post on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). When your home is on the MLS, other agents can quickly find it when looking for their buyers, and your listing will be quickly and easily syndicated to hundreds of listing sites including Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com.

  4. An experienced real estate agent can look at your home objectively and get your house ready for sale by suggesting the right improvements to help it sell quickly and for top dollar. They can also suggest reputable and affordable vendors or contractors.

  5. A home that is listed with a real estate agent on average sells for 23% more than a home that is For Sale By Owner. In the Tampa area, that could mean an average of $52,000 more! These added dollars come from a combination of the additional marketing and exposure your listing will get when listed with an agent as well as your agent's negotiating skills.
