If homes are selling so quickly, why should you pay a Realtor to help you sell? Here are three key reasons why you should enlist the help of a professional irrespective of the conditions in our market:
1. An agent helps you choose the best offer. If you don’t use a Realtor, how do you know you’re getting the best offer for your home? Suppose your home is currently valued at $450,000; if you got an offer for $455,000 within two days of listing, would that be the best offer you could get? What could you get if you had 10, 12, or even 30 offers? Great agents in the top 1% of the industry can help you answer these types of questions and educate you about what’s going on in the market.
2. An agent makes sure the buyer can afford to pay the amount they’re offering. Many buyers can qualify for the amount at which the home is appraised, but whether they can afford to go above that amount is uncertain. A Realtor can help them go through the steps to assess how much they can pay above that amount, if any at all.
3. An agent helps you negotiate repairs and other terms after the offer has been accepted. Most buyers will have to negotiate repairs and other aspects of the offer, and even if they’ve waived their appraisal contingencies, they’ll often try to negotiate the seller’s price down. We sell multiple homes a week, so we’re very familiar with these types of circumstances. We can help you navigate through them to make sure you keep as much money in your pocket as possible even after accepting the best offer.
