Why Does A Seller Need an Agent?

Selling your home is a big step and an agent will be there to help you along the way. An agent can play a significant role in your

  1. Access to more Buyers: Through a real estate office and the multiple listing service (MLS), a realtor has access to hundreds - maybe thousands - of serious home buyers. By not working with a realtor, sellers run the risk that the "right people" just aren't seeing their property. With a realtor, it is certain that qualified prospective buyers who are looking for a house like yours are more likely to see it.
  2. Save Time: If you are not working with a realtor, you don't know if the people who are showing up to see your house are serious buyers or just people walking by. This uncertainty can cost you a lot of time and wasted effort.
  3. Save Money: With a larger sphere of qualified buyers, your realtor is more likely to sell the house faster than if it were not listed. Additionally, a realtor is more likely to get the best price possible for your house.
  4. Hassle-free: Leave the negotiating, paperwork, and the transaction details to your realtor. An experienced agent knows how to negotiate well and sell homes with the least amount of troubles as possible. A realtor will take care of the selling stress so you can focus more on packing and preparing to move!
