Why Use A Real Estate Agent?
Part 1: For Sellers
Whether you’re buying or selling a home, there are plenty of benefits of using a real estate agent. Real estate agents are meant to help you throughout your real estate goals. As your preferred Airdrie real estate agent, there are some things you must know before diving in head first. Using a real estate agent makes your life easier, and gives you more ammunition when making deals. In part one of this two series blog, we’re going to look at the benefits of using an Airdrie real estate agent when you’re selling your home.
Selling Your Home With An Airdrie Real Estate Agent:
Selling your own home is a huge task to undertake. Without the tools that a real estate agent has, there are plenty of pitfalls that you could stumble into.
REALTORS® Have A Large Network
When you use a real estate agent, you’re using someone who has a large network of people at the tip of their fingers. This is their career, someone who has been in the industry long enough to know how to market your home to the right audiences.
Knowledge of LARGER Market Trends
Real estate agents are familiar with market trends and locations. For example as an Airdrie real estate agent I have access to the average market price, comparable property selling prices in your area, and other details that are otherwise unreleased to the public.
Experienced In Negotiations
Real estate agents are well versed in the art of negotiation. While you’re selling your home there will be emotions that can creep up. If you have lived in your home for a long period of time, there might be sentimental attachements which can make the negotiation process challenging. As your preferred Airdrie real estate agent, I have the tools to negotiate prices and get the value you deserve form your home.
Access to Qualified Buyers
Real estate agents are a tight community. We all want the best for our sellers and buyers. This allows us to work together as real estate professionals and find qualified buyers for our sellers.
Saves Homeowners Time
Selling a home is a big job. When you already have a job, adding on another is stressful. Using that time instead to organize your thoughts and keep up with your daily activities will be a huge weight off of your shoulders. Let your Airdrie real estate agent worry about selling your home instead.
Buyers Are More Likely To Trust A REALTOR®
When selling your home it’s essential to have a third-party to serve as the mediator between the home sellers and home buyers. Because all real estate agents are held to the highest ehtical and professional standards, they are required to provide honest communication. If an Airdrie real estate agent were to engage in dishonest negotiations they could be seriously repremanded by the Candian Real Estate Association and even lose their license. Having a transparent third-party is very attractive to buyers who are shopping in the market.
So, if you’ve been thinking about selling your home without a REALTOR® you might want to think again! There are many reasons people can hesitate to use a real estate agent to sell their home. My hope is that you don’t knock it until you try it! When you work with me, I make it my mission to make your real estate experience as positive as possible.
