If you’re selling your home, you want to get the best price for it with the minimum fuss and inconvenience. Buying and selling property can be complicated and stressful, and selling a home on your own may require more expertise or spare time than you have. That’s why it is important that you get the support you need.
It is also important that you know the status of the body that is representing you in your real estate transaction. Real estate agents are state-licensed to represent buyers or sellers. So are real estate brokers, who supervise agents and typically manage or own the office. Realtors are agents or brokers who are voluntary members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), an industry trade organization.
A reputable broker or agent will help you to market and sell your home and take that part of the stress out of the situation so that you can concentrate on all the other things involved in moving home. With the services of a good real estate agent or broker you can be confident that potential buyers will have their attention brought to your home and that it will be marketed at a realistic price. When you sell your home through an agent, the agent will be the conduit for all purchase offers and negotiations with prospective buyers. A good agent will have excellent negotiation skills and a track record of satisfied sellers so you should look out for these qualities and ask for recommendations from others who have recently sold a property.
