Why Do You Need A Qualified REALTOR To Sell Your Home Even In This Market

Why do you need a qualified agent to list your home?
All you hear about in the Real Estate Market is multiple offers and homes selling in a day.  It seems like that would mean that you could hire a discount realtor to get the job done, right?  Well… not so much.  Yesterday I had a meeting with a seller to discuss listing their home.  Afterwards, I decided to preview a home that was for sale in the same community.  At this time there are 3 homes for sale in the neighborhood.  One is under contract; one is negotiating a contract and this one.  This home is priced well above the others but the agent really goes on and on about the upgrades so I was really expecting to have my mind BLOWN by this house. My mind was blown but not by the house instead by the unprofessionalism of the agent.  This house was nowhere near as nice (even with all the upgrades) as the other two homes in the community. I could bore you getting into all the marketing and staging details that were an issue or I could break down the errors in pricing the house but lets just get down to the nitty gritty…. The other two homes where being looked at and offers are coming in and this one is sitting… sellers have moved out and are floating two mortgages.  If this agent had helped them price their home correctly, utilized effective marketing and perhaps a little staging this home would already be SOLD!

You may not like it when a professional agent tells you what they think your home will sell for, by all means ask them to explain, but pricing your home too high will not make you more money.  It will leave you frustrated and still holding the note to that home. 
When looking for an agent to sell your home you want someone who will help you remove as many challenges, in regards to selling your home, as possible.  You want an agent that will do their homework when it comes to pricing your house.  They need to be honest about the market you are in and what you need to get done to help your home sale.  We all love to hear our house is perfect and it is worth 2 times what our neighbors home is, however that is not going to help you meet your end goal of selling your home.

Now is a great time to sell your home.  Prices are on the rise and interest rates are still low.  Do not miss the opportunity to sell your home in this incredible housing market by pricing it too high and scaring all the buyers away. If you would like an honest take on what your home should sale for, what you need to do to get it ready to sell and top notch photography and marketing to get it done Call Me!
