Working with an Agent Vs. Working Alone

What a Real Estate Agent Does For You

Your real estate agent does a lot to earn that commission and you may never be aware of the work that went into selling your home.

  • Your agent will collaborate with you to correctly price your home. As a seller, you may use home valuation tools, but it's best to work with your agent to make sense of all the information you collect. They will use their market knowledge to figure out a price that will get someone to buy your home, but will also get you the most for your home.
  • Their will handle buyer inquiries and home showing, a process that can be time-consuming. They may get calls from people who are just kicking the tires and don't intend to buy soon, as well as calls from people who are serious about purchasing a home. Your real estate agent will spend much of their time talking to buyers and giving tours of your home.
  • They will handle all the advertising. They know what works: which Web sites get results and which magazines and newspapers are most often read by potential home buyers. They will take care of taking pictures of your home to post on the Web or in ads and will update postings and listings. You'll never have to think about it.
  • Your agent can help you stage your home before showing it to potential buyers. Many professionals say the first impression can make or break a deal. The agent will know how to clear out the clutter and arrange your furniture to make your home more appealing to potential buyers.
