Why Use a Listing Agent
If you are selling your home, a Real Estate Agent from Picket Fence Properties :
Can give you up-to-date market information
An important key to getting your home sold is factoring in current market information. One of our agents can provide market information and the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.
Markets your property to other real estate agents and the public
We are no-nonsense at Picket Fence Properties. We will tell you what you need to do to get your home sold. We will offer staging assistance and use one of the areas top photographers. We will then take your listing and market your property to other real estate agents and buyers searching homes for sale in the Capital District. In most markets, over 50% of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. Your agent acts as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, holding open houses and tours for other agents, etc.
Knows when, where and how to advertise your property
There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The National Association of Realtor’s studies show that 82% of real estate sales are from sources other than advertising like personal referrals, company reputation, and yard signs. Your agent will have access to these sources and more. Also, when a property is marketed with the help of your agent, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your agent will generally pre-screen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
Can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position
An initial offer is just the first stepping stone in a long line that will bring you to a closing table. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing. There are plenty of possible pitfalls. Your agent can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process. And, if something should arise, an agent from our office can help you overcome the problem and get to closing.
Can help close the sale of your home
Between the initial sales agreement and closing, questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain financing or a cloud in the title is discovered. The paperwork alone can be very overwhelming to most sellers. Your agent is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing.
