Should I Hire A Realtor To Sell My Home?


Should I Hire A Realtor To Sell My Home? This is the question that most homeowners are stuck with. One of the hesitations of doing so is the traditional 5%-6% commission to be paid to the realtor. One might think that this money is more than enough to pay for the service of a realtor, but there are many pros that a homeowner selling his house can benefit from when hiring a realtor and his expertise in selling houses. 

There are pointers to keep in mind when hiring a realtor like getting referrals from your trusted people, the selling history of the realtor, making sure that the realtor has a website that will showcase your house, and lastly ask yourself what does your gut tells you? These pointers are important if you choose to hire a realtor to sell your house.

 Below are some of the key reasons why a homeowner should always hire a realtor.

1 They know how to price your house right. A realtor will know the current and standing value of your home depending on the real estate market situation, your location, your competition, and other important factors that you may not be aware of. Setting the right price is one of the top deal makers in selling houses. The first consideration of a buyer is the affordability of the house and if you fail to tag the right pricing, it will take you a while to sell your home.


2 A realtor has many marketing tricks up his sleeves. Realtors are trained and skilled enough to competitively and successfully market your home. They know how to market your house to the public, they would know all the listing services needed, they would have the right resources, they have an already established network where the right strategy, and approach will be used. A realtor would know the effective marketing strategies depending on your house, thus they will be able to reach the right people that will eventually turn out to be potential buyers.

3 A realtor will be the one negotiating with the many objections and proposals of your buyer. They are experienced enough to know how to handle such objections or bargaining without sacrificing the selling potential of your house. 


5 Your realtor will handle everything from the beginning until the end. If you are a busy person who does not have the time to transact, negotiate, bargain, do the marketing, and all other stuff related to selling your house, hiring a realtor is your best move. You will be free from the burden of all the hassles and stress of the process especially if you are not familiar with how selling a home works. You can go about your everyday normal routine while your realtor is the one going to take care of selling your house for you. You may want to get in touch with them at the end of the day to ask about how things are going.

6 Hiring a realtor will mean that you get to have support and direct help in the complex processing of paperwork, titles, taxes, etc. If you are unfamiliar with this, your realtor will give you the information, details that you need to know. They would be able to refer you to the right and trusted people that will be involved like an attorney, or someone in the local government offices. 


If selling a house by yourself is not an option for you, do not hesitate to hire a realtor. Just remember to discuss matters that make you uncomfortable or hesitant about with them, like the amount or percentage that he will get. You should also discuss in detail the processes that entail selling a home, this is so you will not get caught off guard with the paperwork, negotiations (if there is one), lengthy meetings, and other seemingly stressful aspects of home selling. Everything that bothers you can be solved or compromised by having a good conversation with your realtor. After all, realtors are there to help you sell your home for them to earn their cut. It’s always a win-win situation for both parties, so good luck on this monumental milestone in your life!
