Why You Hire a Realtor to Sell Your Home
Updated: Apr 2, 2020
What did you do last year? How often did you do it?
It’s 2020 in Southeastern Massachusetts and there are MANY jobs out there. Chances are you perform one of them. You could write software, wait tables, catch lobsters, maintain a presence as an on-line trend setter. I’m willing to bet you’re pretty good at what you spent last year doing.
So is your local realtor.
While you were painting houses, operating airplane landing equipment, or repairing the machinery at Build-a-Bear, your local realtor was selling a house. She was gathering and analyzing offers on selling that house, determining a fair price or aggressive price based on market trends and facts, or describing your neighborhood to someone you never met.
Even when not involved in transactions, realtors are determining the marketing power of wall colors, talking with other professionals in the industry, and (constantly) attending on-going training.
The numbers bear out, according to the National Association of Realtors, sellers get an average of 22% more for their home when using a realtor.
You have expertise, and so does your local realtor; they’re not the same. When it’s time to sell your stock, cash in on your “biggest investment,” you owe it to yourself to use a pro.
If it’s time to sell your house and you’re not sure where to start; it’s okay, call me.
