Thinking of Listing your home? This is what Realtor.com says is the NUMBER ONE, MOST IMPORTANT thing to do.
“Find a great real estate agent! Think you can sell your home yourself, and pocket the cash you would otherwise pay an agent? It can be tempting, especially in a hot market, but resist the urge, says Jon Sterling, a real estate consultant in San Francisco. He’s found that a “For Sale by Owner” transaction is almost always a disaster, leading you to sacrifice both money and time.
And, with that said, don’t just blindly hire the agent who most recently sent you a flier or the one your uncle’s friend’s co-worker’s cousin used. Do some research to find a real estate agent (or ideally a few) who is knowledgeable about your specific market, and then interview her to make sure her or she is aa good fit.”
A real estate professional is key to the successful sale of your home. Don’t make the mistake of thinking otherwise. Our professionals will be glad to share their successes with you.
