Safeguard Your Goals By Using A Realtor
Due to the state of the real estate market, many homeowners are considering selling their house without a Realtor in order to skip paying commissions. Despite the abundance of things that can go wrong when you don’t have an experienced professional on your side.
Thanks to an excessive amount of information available on the internet, it’s easy to think you have all the data necessary to prepare a good strategy. However, that material can be a dangerous thing without the right expertise to go with it. Just like using the internet to diagnose medical issues, the internet is not the best way to implement a sound real estate transaction.
- As a seller, you may not understand the options buyers are most likely to consider, how to find the best audience, or what terms of sale are common in your market, among other predicaments. A professional Realtor will prevent seller’s from making expensive mistakes while positioning the property in the best situation by taking external factors into account.
- Because of the surplus of data at buyer’s fingertips, image is everything for seller’s. A poorly presented property won’t successfully communicate the features, benefits and advantages of the property in order to attract the right buyers.
- Real estate contracts are filled with legal jargon. When putting the purchase agreement together, the Realtor is responsible for ensuring all the right forms are included with all the appropriate signatures. The consequences of even one missed signature could be potentially devastating, and very expensive, resulting in things such as a potential lawsuit.
- Realtors have access to the right people to achieve the best possible results. Along with sharing advice and ideas to help one another, Realtors are connected to a number of other industry professionals that make a big difference in delivering the right tools and resources necessary.
Furthermore, according to the most current data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), FSBO sales accounted for only 9 percent of all home sales in 2020, and FSBO sales seem to be steadily declining over the past decade from a 2004 peak of just 14 percent.
Working with a Realtor certifies that you have the expertise of a professional with a fiduciary responsibility to you. Realtors are contractually obligated to look out for your best interests, and compelled to do everything in their power to protect you.
