Selling With A Realtor®
Your home is your biggest asset. You’ve undoubtedly invested a lot in it over the years, whether it’s time, money, or just plain emotion. So when it comes time to sell, you want to get it right.
Selling your home is not quite as simple as putting up a “for sale” in the yard, or paying a “flat-fee” to get your home listed on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). Most homeowners will buy and sell fewer than five homes in their lifetime, and often years go by between transactions.
As a full-time real estate agent, I broker dozens of transactions every year. In addition to marketing your home, I’ll attract qualified buyers and guide you through a maze of paperwork, mandatory disclosures and state regulations necessary to successfully sell your home.
And since 88 percent of buyers are represented by their own real estate agent, as your Listing Agent, I’ll ensure the seller’s side of the transaction meets the legal requirements necessary to minimize risk to both the seller and buyer. The fact is, Realtors® can save sellers time, money, liability and hassle — in fact, nine in 10 sellers use a state licensed real estate agent to market and sell their homes and ensure the process goes smoothly.
