People ask "Why should I use a Realtor when I sell my home?"
Every day people make the decision to sell their home. This is by far one of the biggest decisions people make not only financially but emotionally as well. After all, this could be the first house you and your spouse lived in together, it could be the place you raised a family, or it could just be a home you fell in love with. Whichever the reason may be, you want the best possible result of your decision. Why try to sell your home alone and deal with all of the struggles of offers, open houses, phone calls, showings, and nosey neighbors, when you can hire a real estate professional to handle all of these things and more?
Many times sellers think they can save thousands of dollars by choosing to sell by owner, however, in more cases than not, it can actually cost MORE to sell by owner. Realtors know the market inside and out as well as the neighborhoods and what is selling at what prices. It’s very common that you may list your home for $395,000 because that price is way above what you paid, but if you did the market research you should actually be getting $450,000.
There is a lot of liability in selling a home. There are disclosures, forms, time sensitive tasks that could greatly affect a contract, and many other items that have to be tended to when selling a home. When you hire a Realtor, all of that is tended to without a second thought.
Realtors have unlimited advertising and marketing abilities. When you list with The Star Team your home is featured on the multiple listing service for ALL agents to see as well as others sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow, and Trulia, and our personal website just to name a few. That brings up another point; you want your home to sell quickly, right? Getting your home on the MLS for all agents to see is a huge benefit of using a Realtor, as opposed to simply putting a sign in your front yard, which limits your exposure to buyers both in and out of the area. The Star Team has innovative marketing expertise, contacts with other Realtors who work with buyers, a platform to market not only locally but in some cases nationally and internationally, and the support of a brokerage that can market your home more widely than you can as an individual.
There are many reasons to hire a Realtor in addition to the ones already mentioned. Can For Sale By Owners be successful? Of course, but research shows 90% of homeowners prefer to work with a professional rather than risk an unsatisfactory home selling experience.
The Star team offers innovative marketing customized for your listing, professional and personal integrity, professional photography, and the power of three highly qualified agents.
