How Much Will a Real Estate Agent Save You?
Some homeowners choose to sell their homes themselves to save money on the commission. Ironically, these homeowners would have walked away with more money and less hassle had they let an agent do the hard work for them.
According to the National Association of REALTORS®, a home sold by a real estate agent sold for nearly 13 percent more than the typical home that was “for sale by owner.”
It’s important to work with a local real estate agent that knows:
How to set a price that will attract the most buyers
How to best reach the most likely buyer for your home
The features buyers expect from homes in your area
What marketing techniques are driving the most buyer traffic
