3 Reasons Why You Need An Agent To Sell Your House – FAST!
Relocating your family may be the hardest thing to do if the situation calls for it. Moreover, selling your house prior to moving out adds all the hassle and stress. And that stress multiplies if you happen to have children or pets. Buyers will be most interested in the first few weeks – and that’s when you need to do your best and sell it.
All these inconveniences in selling your house may be lessen, if not eliminated, if you get an agent to sell your house, and get things done for you. When you’re hiring a real estate agent, a few things really matter. Their track record should show that they know how to sell, and how to sell fast.
They must know what benefits and disadvantages your neighborhood has. And upon first sight, they should be able to tell you what a potential buyer might love or hate? To get the answer to all of these questions – just check their reviews. Nevertheless, here are some reasons why you need an agent to sell your house and leave all your worries behind.
- YOUR EMOTIONS AND PERSONAL TOUCH – DETACHED! Your emotions will always be there, but constructive criticism can become easier to digest when it comes from a broker or agent who is on their side, trying to get the best for them. An agent can take the sting out of the rejection and put a positive spin on any negative feedback. It is really offending to hear criticisms coming from buyers, especially when your selling your most ‘pre-loved’ home. But getting a realtor can follow up without communicating a sense of eagerness or desperation. Following up is their job. When a seller repeatedly checks, it signals, rightly or wrongly, the willingness to accept a lower price, and close the deal! No personal attachments, whatsoever! Besides, it’s not your full-time job, so get an agent to sell your house! They dedicate more time to your sale, and help keep your emotions from sabotaging it.
- AGENTS HAVE LARGE NETWORKS! Even if you have a large personal or professional network, those people will likely have little interest in spreading the word that your house is for sale. You don’t have relationships with clients, other agents, or a real-estate agency to bring the largest pool of potential buyers to your home. A smaller pool of potential buyers means less demand for your property, which can translate to waiting longer to sell your home and possibly not getting as much money as your house is worth. Remember, agents are there for years and it’s been their profession and career to sell properties, and your house is but one small piece of their thing to fulfill. Agents can see what’s wrong with your house that you may find it unacceptable, and they can fix, upgrade and offer all these in their very own style of selling. Agents can get broader exposure for your property and help you negotiate a better deal.
- YOU’LL STAY OUT OF LEGAL PITFALLS! Unless you’re a real-estate attorney, your agent probably knows more about disclosure laws than you do. If you fail to disclose a hazard, nuisance, or defect—and the buyer comes back to you after having moved in and found a problem—the buyer could sue you. Agents can make mistakes, too, but they have professional errors-and-omissions insurance to protect themselves and to give the buyer recourse, so the buyer may not need to pursue the seller for damages.
Selling your home will likely be one of the biggest transactions of your life. You can try to do it alone to save money, but hiring an agent brings expertise, which few home sellers have, to a complex transaction with many financial and legal pitfalls.
