Those that choose to sell their own property are usually hoping to avoid the commission paid to real estate agents. Many individuals are familiar with the housing market and process of selling a home, however, a majority of ‘for sale by owners’ are inexperienced home sellers and can encounter nothing but issues. Besides limiting the number of potential buyers, the decision to sell by owner has cost many homeowners incredible amounts of time, energy and money.
One of the most critical aspects of selling a home is finding the right price. This requires extensive market research and analysis of the property itself. Our real estate agents are immersed in the local trends on a daily basis. In setting a sale price on your home, a real estate professional will be able to utilize this knowledge to determine the most accurate market value for your home.
Even if your home is in the most attractive location within the market, it is a challenge to find interested buyers without marketing your property. This process begins with listings in Multiple Listing Service, which our REALTORS® subscribe to. This is critical for maximum exposure.
When a Soria Real Estate agent is involved in the marketing process, many additional opportunities often develop. Utilizing our industry connections and relationships, we are often able to find prospective buyers that might not have been able to find your property otherwise. While your property is for sale, you can expect us to work diligently trying to find the right buyer for your property. Very few homeowners trying to sell their own homes have nearly as much time to devote to the marketing process.
Our agents will help you work through legal documents and the entire transaction such as the purchase and sale, title, escrow, inspections, appraisals and more. Those that choose to sell their own homes will have to negotiate these documents themselves or hire an attorney for assistance. Unlike most home sellers, our agents have experience with the closing process, assisting all parties to complete the sale as efficiently as possible and minimize your legal risks.
Understanding the unique risks and difficulties you may face during the selling process will not only help you make an informed decision about hiring us to represent you but it will also help you to get your property SOLD!
