Real estate transactions are one of the biggest financial dealings of most people’s lifetime. A real estate agent can help you understand everything you need to know about the home selling process.
Some ways a real estate agent can help you through the process are:
Helps you get your property sold for the best price, quickly and easily by giving you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace as well as the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties.
Recommends repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of your property.
Markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. Your real estate agent acts as the marketing coordinator, distributing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
Pre-screens and helps you objectively evaluate every buyer's proposal.
Helps close the sale of your home. Your real estate agent is the best person to objectively help you resolve any issues ( for example, unexpected repairs might be required to obtain financing or a title problem is discovered) and move the transaction to closing.
