Selling your house is going to be a lot easier when you are working with an experienced real estate agent because they are going to be able to draw on past sales and dealings with other realtors to close a deal. While you may not be an expert in selling, your realtor is experienced in marketing your property in a way that gets the buyer emotionally invested to the point they need to have the property. The real estate listing agents at Magnolia Realty have the experience needed to bring the right buyers to the table to be able to close the deal for the right price in less time.
Moving the House Faster for the Right Price
Many sellers don’t understand that the price they want for their house and the price people are willing to pay is miles apart. The buyer is not concerned with how much you paid for the house and how much profit you want to make, they are only going to pay what the market dictates. If a house like yours is selling for $200k, you will be hard pressed to get a buyer at $250k. Your real estate agent understands house to analyze the market and pick a price that still makes you money but gets more serious offers too.
Capitalizing on the Experience of Your Realtor
The one thing you cannot bring to the table when you try to sell your house without a real estate agent is the experience. Your real estate agent has closed on a number of houses recently, and in that time, they have seen issues with the bank, credit problems, home inspection issues, all threaten the sale but not kill the deal. Being able to draw on that experience to navigate any issues in your sale means you are more likely to get to closing without anything serious causing the deal to fall through at the last minute.
Access to Potential Buyers Eager to Close the Deal
The importance of professional networking with your real estate agent is one of the things you may not even put much attention on at the start. Even though your agent is marketing the property, they also have a network of other agents they have had transactions with in the past, and will consult with them if they think their clients could be a perfect fit for your house, Since these agents already have dealings together, these transactions tend to move along much faster and you may see a contract in hand right after the two consult with each other.
By bringing qualified buyers to the negotiating table, your real estate agent is going to be able to help find the right person for your house. Once the contract is in hand, your realtor follows along with the details of the transaction from the home inspection right up to the closing and will be able to anticipate issues and deal with them swiftly so nothing interrupts the sales process.
