Have you ever taken on a project that looked easy until you actually did the work? Selling your home without a real estate agent is a mistake like this that a lot of people make. Here are a few reasons why it’s worth your time to hire a REALTOR®.

  • Figuring out the right price takes research and experience. Overpriced homes can remain on the market a long time, often selling for less than if they had been correctly priced in the first place. Worse, you might under-price your home and lose money on the sale.

  • Showing a home to every interested buyer is time-consuming. And you don’t want to show the home to people who can’t afford it or, worse, have criminal intentions.

  • Real estate transactions are complex. You must review stacks of legal documents and take care of details with many different service providers.

  • Making a mistake in a home sale can lead to delays, unsuccessful transactions, and legal trouble.

  • Many people find negotiating difficult or even uncomfortable.

If you’re thinking of selling your home without a REALTOR®, make sure you understand what’s involved. REALTORS® make selling homes look easy because of they experience they bring to the transaction. Hiring a professional will save you time, reduce your stress, and help you avoid hassles.
