A recent report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) highlights that two of the most challenging aspects for individuals selling their homes on their own involve accurately determining the price and comprehending and handling the necessary paperwork.
Here are a few ways in which a real estate agent can assist in navigating these challenging tasks.
Determining the Right Price
Setting an appropriate price for your house is crucial when attempting to sell it. If you’re going the FSBO route, two common pitfalls may arise. Firstly, you might ask for too much money, risking overpricing. Conversely, you might not ask for enough, resulting in underpricing. Both scenarios can impede the sale of your house. According to NerdWallet:
“When selling a home, first impressions matter. Your house’s market debut is your first chance to attract a buyer and it’s important to get the pricing right. If your home is overpriced, you run the risk of buyers not seeing the listing. . . . But price your house too low and you could end up leaving some serious money on the table. A bargain-basement price could also turn some buyers away, as they may wonder if there are any underlying problems with the house.”
To circumvent these issues, teaming up with a real estate agent is advisable. Real estate agents possess the knowledge to determine the optimal price by understanding the local housing market. They can leverage their expertise to set a price aligned with what buyers are willing to pay, thereby giving your house the best chance to make a positive impression from the outset.
Understanding and Handling Paperwork
Selling a house entails a plethora of paperwork and legal documentation that must be meticulously managed. Navigating the rules and regulations can be challenging for homeowners, potentially leading to liability risks and legal complications without professional guidance.
Real estate agents are well-versed in the contracts and paperwork required for selling a house. Their familiarity with the rules enables them to guide you through the process, minimizing the likelihood of errors that could result in legal issues or delays.
In lieu of grappling with the mounting pile of documents independently, consider partnering with an agent who can serve as your advisor, assisting you in sidestepping any legal obstacles.
Selling your house is a significant undertaking and can be intricate. Engaging the services of a real estate agent can significantly impact your ability to set the right price and handle all the intricacies, allowing you to sell with confidence.
