In truth as a Realtor I don’t sell homes nor do I dictate the home a buyer elects to purchase - as I tell all of my clients “I don’t get to spend your money”. My role is to educate you and facilitate the process with the sole purpose of protecting the interest of my clients driven by the Realtor’s Code of Ethics.
Home owners make decisions to sell based on any number of factors - they’ve outgrown the home, they wish to downsize or perhaps a job change forces the decision. Buyers make purchases dictated by their own particular lifestyle preferences - for today and looking forward. Sounds simple doesn’t it?
So as a seller why employ an agent and add the cost of commissions? Well aside from properly vetting potential buyers to make certain they are financially capable, dealing with the pages and pages of contracts, municipal certifications, property inspection issues there is price. According to the National Association of Realtors [NAR] who track this data statistically sellers who use a Realtor realize a better bottom line. That is really what we are talking about here - your money.
Today’s buyer is sitting in the comfort of his or her current residence researching online well in advance of ever actually looking at homes first hand. As a Realtor working with one of the most technologically advanced international brands and local brokerages I have the tools and capability to place your home in all of the places buyers visit - Coldwell Banker.com, Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, Homes.com and countless other websites that offer information. Adding this to my experience and local market awareness your odds of receiving the representation garnering the best price and terms for your home are significantly better.
Conversely if you are a buyer this same level of expertise is employed to provide you with the additional knowledge not necessarily found online enabling you to locate the right property and negotiate from a fully informed position.
Whether selling or buying your best move is to call me!
