Anyone can sell their own home and many people often try and do it on their own. Don’t stress if you often ask yourself “who can sell my house?”
Selling your home while remaining in accordance with the law is a tough thing to do if you have no experience in it. That’s why it’s always recommended that you work with an experienced real estate agent.
Can I Still Sell My Home by Myself?
Sure, of course you can. However, in doing so, you will need to learn everything there is to know about being a real estate agent, since you will be doing their job, but for your own home. Not everyone has the ability to do things like learn real estate contract law.
Rather than save a few percent on the commission of your home, that percent can be put to good use by hiring a real estate agency and freeing up your time. If you do not flip homes for a living, and you have little knowledge of the real estate selling process, it is best to trust those that do.
Professional Agents Have the Skills You Need
Consider, as a thought experiment, writing up a contract selling Langley condos without consulting a lawyer. Consider the legal risk you take upon yourself when you do so. Well, professional real estate agents, who are trained in real estate contract law, do that every day. When it comes to far-reaching future issues like contract law, it is best to consult with experts.
In the case of selling your home, those experts are real estate professionals and agencies.
Selling Real Estate Is More Than Open Houses and Cookies
Selling real estate, especially Langley condos, is a full-time-and-a-half job. There are real estate agents who work over 100 hours a week because they are good at what they do. There is a lot of work involved and real estate agents and agencies often work on commission, so they do not get paid until the house is sold.
Duties of a Real Estate Agent
Real estate agents are consummate professionals, who utilize a wide variety of multi-disciplinary skills in order to prep your home for sale and market it effectively.
Here are just some of the duties of the average real estate agent:
● Study property listings
● Interview clients
● Prepare and conduct open houses
● Prepare extensive online and print marketing campaigns
● Write representation contracts, deeds, purchase agreements, closing statements, leases, and more
● Draw up legal contracts
Each of these duties could be a full-time job by itself. That is how hard they work. However, to get a real estate agent or agency that can do all these jobs at once is quite valuable.
