10 Reasons You Need A Real Estate Pro To Sell Your Home

If you're thinking about selling your home, don't do it alone. Although some sellers may initially try to sell there home themselves, they soon realize they need an experienced professional on their side to help them through the process.


1. Understand the local market

The internet gives you access to more information now than ever before. An experienced real estate professional, like me, is able to help you understand this information in the context of the local market and interpret what it means to your home sale.


2. Price your home competitively

When you list your home, you want it to sell quickly and for top dollar. Having professional assistance will help you do both, especially in competitive markets.


3. Optimize online marketing strategies

Buyers are savvier than ever. To find the right buyer, we have to go where they are. We'll do more than put a sign in your yard to attract buyers; we'll utilize the latest online marketing tool to show your home at its best an entice buyers to learn more.


4. Target the right buyers

A marketing strategy means nothing if you're not targeting the right buyers. The first few weeks a house is on the market are vital. The longer a home remains on the market, the more likely the seller will have to reduce their listing price and/or offer incentives, such as a home warranty policy or assistance with closing costs, to attract buyers. A real estate pro has the experience and connections to find the right buyers for your home.


5. Get more money for your home

All sellers want their homes purchased at the listed price, if not more. Studies show that enlisting the aid of an agent to sell your home will net you more money than trying to sell it yourself. According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the average for sale by owner (FSBO) sold for $210,000 compared to an agent-assisted home sale, which sold for $249,000.
