When deciding to do a listing for houses in your area, you may be tempted to conduct the sale privately. It sounds fairly simple, and you get to save on the commission. However, you should consider these excellent reasons to make use of the services of an estate agent.

Knowledge And Experience

Selling houses is an estate agent’s full-time job. They are experts in their field and have much experience to rely on if any problems arise. They understand current trends in the market and have insight into the value of properties in different areas.

Agents Know What Sells

An experienced agent will be able to go through your home with you and point out potential deterrents to a quick sale. They will spot flaws that you may not notice as you see them daily.  They will offer advice on some essential repairs or changes that you could implement to make your home more saleable.

Agents Have Access To A Sales Network

Most agents belong to sales networks and multi-listing services that will get your listing to a wider audience quickly. The larger the pool of potential buyers, the more demand there will be for your property, and this can lead to a quicker sale at the price you were hoping for.

Assessing Credentials Of Potential Buyers

Agents have the skills and training to assess the credentials and motivation of a potential buyer before showing them your property.  In this way, each showing of your home will be to a serious buyer who can afford the asking price.

Legal Aspects

The sale of a property involves multitudes of documents that need to be completed and paperwork that needs to be gathered, such as deeds, surveys, property tax receipts, renovation contracts, transferable warranties, etc. There will be inspections to be carried out and lawyers to hire.

In addition, the sales agreement outlining all disclosures, material latent defects and conditions of the sale is a particularly important document that is best managed by experts.

An experienced agent will be able to guide you seamlessly through the entire process without skipping out key details that could derail the sale.
