Selling Your Home? Here's what a Realtor does for you
TOP DOLLAR FOR YOUR PROPERTY...A Realtor knows real estate values. You deserve to get top dollar for your property. But what is top dollar? It's not what the neighbor says... or what the home down the block sold for...It's what your property can realistically bring in today's market. And that's what a Realtor is trained to do: Determine the fair market price of a home at the time you want to sell it.
THERE'S A PROSPECT AWAITING YOUR HOME...Your Realtor is one of 600,000 world-wide. Realtors work closely together to make available for you a qualified list or pre-screened prospects. When a Realtor brings a prospect to your property, they are not lookers...they are serious persons interested in buying a home.
A REALTOR KNOWS THE TERRITORY...It's a Realtor's job to know the community in which you live. Therefore, the Realtor is familiar with zoning codes, schools, churches, shopping, transportation and other pertinent information that will be of importance to prospective buyers. The Realtor's expertise goes a long way toward consummating a sale.
A THIRD-PARTY, UNEMOTIONAL VIEW...That's what is needed between Buyer and Seller. And that's what you get with a Realtor. A Realtor has no ties to the property and can objectively answer all questions from the prospective buyer regarding the value and condition of your property.
MARKETING EXPERTISE AT NO EXTRA COST...Realtors are experts in selling property. That's their business. They know how to best market a particular piece of property in order to bring top dollar to you, the Seller. Because Realtors work closely together, you benefit from a referral network that is constantly being updated in the very area in which you are selling your home.
MAKE YOUR HOME MORE Sellable...When it comes to suggestions on how to make your home more attractive...more salable to prospective Buyers...your Realtor is the person you should turn to. These suggestions are based upon years of marketing experience...based upon expertise gained by selling home similar to yours. It's experience that comes built-in with every Realtor.
ASSISTANCE FOR THE BUYER...A Realtor also serves the Buyer after the sale is made, but in serving the needs of the Buyer, the Realtor continues to serve you. Because of his or her knowledge of local financial institutions,a Realtor will aid the Buyer in obtaining a mortgage, knows down payment requirements, and will offer advice in other matters such as escrow payments, property taxes, closing costs and utility bills.
NO CLOSING TIME PROBLEMS...Not when a Realtor is present to help the Seller and the Buyer. A Realtor will assist you and the Buyer in the necessary paperwork, and along with your attorney, will help guide you through the proper execution of title as a bonus when you use a Realtor, the specialist in the area of real estate selling.
