Homeowners often try to sell their homes themselves, but since they don’t have the experience and expertise agents have, they miss out on a lot of benefits. When you work with an agent, selling your home will be much easier. But, that’s not the only benefit you’ll see.
Expert advice on Home Preparation
A professional agent will do more than simply help you list your home. Your agent will provide expert advice on how you can prepare your home so it will show well, get more offers and sell quickly at a higher price.
Agents know what attracts buyers and can help you find ways to update your home’s features, landscaping and even small things, like the paint and the front door, to make your house stand out.
The Perfect Listing Price
There’s a science to finding the perfect listing price and your real estate agent knows how to do this. It’s true that an appraisal will help you find out what your home is worth, but you still won’t know what to price your home at.
Agents know how to choose a price that will attract buyers and even that buyers will bid up, helping you get more for your home. When you work with an agent, you’ll also have an expert to help you decide when it’s time to change the price on your listing.
Your real estate agent will be an expert at pricing homes and this is a benefit you can’t miss out on when you list your Wellesley home for sale.
A Link to the Current Market
When you sell your home yourself, you are limited to the connections you have with friends, family and maybe a little online promotion. But, when you work with an agent, you’ll be working with someone who has all kinds of connections.
Your agent may know a buyer looking for a home like yours and has more access to people who are house hunting. She’ll also be able to market your home and promote your listing on a bigger scale to generate interest.
An Expert Negotiator on your Team
Real estate agents are also incredible negotiators. As you start to get offers your agent can help you negotiate with buyers so you can get what your home is worth and can rest assured that the contract and terms are strong.
In the Wellesley real estate market, it’s not unusual for sellers to get multiple offers. When you start to get a lot of interest in your home, your agent will help you understand each offer and choose the one that is best for you. Then he’ll walk you through the closing process so you can make the sale quickly.
When you work with an agent, you will sell your home quickly, easily and at a high price. Your agent will bring resources and benefits that you just don’t have access to when you try to sell your home yourself.
