 Reasons Why Owners Should Hire a Realtor  

  1. You have only the one property to show; however, today homes are bought by comparison.

  2. You are not aware of the tastes and requirements of the buyer, nor do you have first-hand knowledge of competitive values.

  3. You are not familiar with writing contract that is valid and legal.

  4. The buyer is timid about discussing his or her financial status with you, and you are simply reluctant to ask questions.

  5. You do have time to leave your job to help the buyer arrange his or her financing, nor do you have the expert knowledge of the current home loan market.

  6. You cannot readily negotiate price with a buyer. But the third party, your Realtor, can work out negotiations.

  7. The average visitor will not admit freely to you his or her likes or dislikes; yet these must be brought out into the open.

  8. You can’t “follow-up”, since this will be interpreted as your anxiety to sell in a hurry.

  9. You will hear conflicting suggestions from well-meaning friends; we have answers from experience.

  10. You will make needless repairs to improve your property for selling; the Realtor’s experience can save you needless expense.

  11. You may show your property to a hundred would-be buyers, spend your time, money and effort – and eventually pay a commission to a broker who properly screens prospective purchasers.

  12. You may accept an insincere offer and then spend months, perhaps in litigation, to free your property in order to put it in on the market once more.

  13. You may find buyer’s and seller’s personalities conflict, thereby losing a good sale. The Realtor, as a third party, can diplomatically consummate the sale. 

  14. Most buyers seek the services of a reputable broker because they realize the pitfalls of direct negotiations.

  15. The Realtor will enlist the services of fellow agents, giving the owner the advantage of the entire local sales market.

  16. The Realtor will price the property to sell at a fair market figure. The average owner over-prices, but eventually accepts a price below the market value. 

  17. “For Sale by Owner” signs say curiosity seekers welcome. Your Realtor will screen the lookers from qualified buyers.

  18. Your Realtor gets paid only when your home is sold and you have received your proceeds from the sale.
