"Sell yourself and save the realtor fees, those realtors don't do a darn thing to earn that commission!"

There are actually two breeds of a real estate agent.  One that is love with the image of being an agent, and another who is engrossed with the market and how to best position their clients in it.  This one small distinction makes the difference in what kind of deal you get on thehome you buy and whether or not your home sits or sells.  


Here are 5 good reasons why you should use a hard working realtor:


  • A For Sale By Owner sign will generate 80% of it's calls from local realtors trying to list your home


  • A realtor, with market interpretation, can price your home to sell in 30 days or less netting you more $


  • A realtor has access to tools and resources that cost thousands to market your home effectively


  • He/She is available full time and arranges showings, open houses, and negotiates on your behalf


  • An experienced agent, has an extensive network of agents and buyers to sell your home quickly and in some cases create a bidding war when a home is very desirable.  Knowing how to negotiate these situations can result in significantly more net profit for the seller.  


National Realtors Association supports that 90% of For Sale by Owners eventually throw the towel in and list with a realtor.  It also states that realtors get overall about 19% more than what sellers can get for themselves in asking price.  All of the above lead to the conclusion that a realtor that is engrossed with the market and always seeks how to best position their clients in it, is worth their weight in gold.
