Real estate agents have always had a sort of contradictory reputation. This is partly due to the fact that most people are not happy for the commission they have to pay them, for selling their property and partly due to the fact that they often employ dirty tactics to get their hands on properties. However, there are several great professional real estate agents out there who can really help you in so many ways. This is what we would like to talk about in this article. Let’s see why you should rather turn to a real estate agency instead of listing your property on your own.
This may sound weird but it is true. If you decide to list your home on your own, it’s guaranteed that your first dozens of callers will all be real estate agents, often in disguise. The reasons are simple. Smaller and freelancing real estate agents have to be always on the hunt for a job for themselves and if it represents itself they all jump onto it. This is extremely tiring if you do not want to deal with any, so save yourself the energy: look for a reputable and respectable quality real estate agency to do all this for you.
Many people, who are not familiar with what real estate agents have to put up with on a daily basis thing that their job is simple in fact it’s not really a job at all. However this is far from reality. The tons of phone calls, all the people who want to see the place and want to be shown around and all the energy put into potential buyers who would not turn up in the end: this means tons of pressure. If you’d have to do this on your own, you would only be able to do this if you go on holidays at your workplace. Not to mention the additional pressure stemming from moving, decluttering, cleaning in the same time.
Quality real estate agents can help you with your moving out and also can provide a huge help when it comes to smaller renovation projects and the staging of your home, which basically represents your home in the best light possible and the very best weapon to use if you want to get the best price possible for your property. Staging is done by interior designers with the help of rented furniture and some smaller decoration items you will need to invest in. The value of staging really does pay off and sellers often end up their property being sold for a price way higher than they thought it’s possible.
The most important aspect of a deal is to have a bulletproof official contract. This means you will not fall victim of any fraud that your rights as a seller are all protected and it ensures you are in line with all the laws and regulations including any possible taxes, fees to be paid. A good real estate agent can also help you manage the transferring of all the amenities to the buyers name and can also help you in getting your new home.
