For many people, selling a home is one of the biggest financial decisions that they will make over the course of their lives. The option to pursue the for-sale-by-owner route is tempting, but is that course of action the best one for most folks? While selling your home yourself might seem attractive, here at Wood Realtors we believe that allowing one of our agents to handle this often tricky process will make selling your home simpler, quicker, and less stressful. To see what we mean, check out these five reasons to work with a Wood Realtors agent.
Negotiations and Finances
Because they do it all the time, Wood Realtors agents know their way around negotiations. They can deftly navigate a tricky deal, getting you the best money for your sale. Their extensive knowledge of the real estate market and access to industry tools allow them to see more clearly what your home is worth, what price it can bring, and what buyers might bring to the table. Wood Realtors agents can assess a potential buyer’s credit worthiness and/or verify that funds are available for the purchase. This expertise means that the deal is much less likely to break down at the contract stage.
Wood Realtors agents know how to get your home seen. They know the most effective ways to get properties in front of the eyes of potential buyers. With social media, website, and other promotional avenues not available to most do-it-yourselfers, Wood Realtors understands that the more folks see the property, the more quickly it will sell. More viewers also means more offers, meaning more potential for top-dollar negotiations.
Buying and selling homes is a long and complicated process, often far too time-demanding than most people realize. Wood Realtors agents know all about the stacks of paperwork that needs to be filled out and filed. All the marketing of the properties will lead to many, many phone calls and appointments. And the other entities, like lawyers and inspectors, need attention. All of these moving pieces take up time. A Wood Realtors agent knows exactly how to handle those time demands and will take care of things so that you won’t need to.
As a third party to the buying and selling, a Wood Realtors agent can be an objective voice in what can be an emotional process. You want someone to give you sound advice about your property and to do so with a clear eye towards your best interests. Potential buyers might also be more comfortable dealing with a third party rather than directly with the seller. The professional quality of a Wood Realtors agent can elevate trust levels on both sides of the negotiation table.
Business Ins and Outs
As you can see, the process of selling a home calls for a lot of attention to be paid in a lot of different areas. For someone who doesn’t know the ins and outs of the real estate business, the paperwork, appointments, negotiations, and legal aspects can quickly overwhelm. Let the experts be the experts, and let them put their sound skills to work for you. Contact us at Wood Realtors to get connected with one of our top-notch agents.
