Advice for Sellers

  • We all know this is a tough market. And we know that as sellers when we are cutting prices to the bone paying a Realtor is really tough. So you may think I will sell on my own. Now there have been many blogs here on ActiveRain about why you should use a Realtor. The reasons are numerous and have been often stated. But there is one thing I have never seen given as a reason.
  • How many time has this happened to you. If you are a Realtor the call goes something like this. " I saw this house for sale and I am interested in it. Are you the owner? No I am the Realtor. Oh I was hoping to speak to the owner." ASK YOURSELF WHY. To me the answer is simple. A Realtor works for his or her client. A Realtor is going to examine contracts, ask for earnest money, check on loan status and try to get a price as high as possible in the deal. A buyer knows that. A buyer figures they will do better not working with a Realtor. This happens to us all the time. 
  • So if you are looking for a reason to work with a Realtor and are not covinced from the numerous good blogs here, remeber the BUYER is convinced. If the buyer would rather not work through a listing Realtor then I cannot think of a better reason for you as a seller to have a Realtor in your corner.
