Would You Go to a Auto Mechanic to Fix a Toothache?
In all seriousness, how many of us would use an auto mechanic to fix a toothache? Not too many of us I would think. We would go to a dentist. I am the dentist, err Realtor and you are the auto mechanic. So why are you attempting to fix your toothache? When you want to sell a house or buy a house, why would anyone think they can do a better job than a Realtor?
This is what I do full-time. When we met to have our initial consultation we discussed my experience, my plan to get your house sold, get you pre-approved, and to go over the home buying/selling process.
Yes, I understand and appreciate that you've lived in your house a long time and have invested lots of money/blood/sweat & tears into it. Yes, I understand you want that "perfect dream house with a white picket fence". I also know that I view houses on the market everyday, I study the market and I interpret the market daily to help my clients make the best possible decision that is right for them. Having had many successful transactions, I know what buyers & sellers are looking for.
By communicating and listening to each other we can get your home purchased or sold quickly. I may not always tell you what you want to hear, but I will always tell you what you NEED to hear. After all, you hired the dentist to fix your toothache not the auto mechanic.
