A good agent will help to assure all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted. To successfully process a sale, real estate licensees must have a clear and accurate understanding of the laws that affect real estate. It can be very costly for a Seller doing it alone to over look certain regulations. Such numerous local, state and federal regulations are designed to protecting the Seller and Buyer including environmental laws, as well as federal, state, and local tax laws, including local land-use and zoning laws. A real estate licensee should also have a keen understanding of real estate practices, neighborhood trends and negotiating skills.
Setting the Right Price:
Another highly important task for a real estate agent is to set the right price and then get buyers in the door. Having access to the most up-to-date information about recent sales of comparable homes and competing listings in your neighborhood enable a successful agent to price right. The market is shifting every day and it’s the agent’s job to keep abreast of those changes.
Marketing a Sale:
A good agent will market your home aggressively. Recommending staging techniques to make the property look great. Also, maximizing the listing with quality photographs, and staging the house before showing the house to prospective buyers. It is extremely helpful that the agent will vet potential buyers so you can deal only with serious prospects.
Processing the Sale:
Once a buyer is found, the agent will negotiate counter-offers, process and track the paperwork, and generally guide through the most nerve-racking part of the selling process.
