It seems simple – homeowners pay to list the house on web sites, put a sign in their yard and get ready to show a lot of strangers their house. With so much demand today, surely the house would sell quickly.
Too often, the house sells, but for thousands of dollars less than it might have if a professional Realtor, knowing the neighborhood, had priced the house correctly. Or maybe worse, the house does not sell because it is priced too high. Without expert advice, the house could also show poorly.

An agent’s most important job is to expertly guide a seller in what is, most often, their biggest financial transaction. They know the market, the comparable sales and the trends and are committed to advising sellers how to get top dollar for their primary investment.
In the emotional business of buying or selling a home, a professional agent also acts as a buffer between the buyer and seller—a critical role considering that there are often issues concerning repairs, possession dates and inspection issues that need to be negotiated in a contract.

In this fast-paced market it’s important to work with a professional who buys and sells houses every day, handles the showings, answers questions, deals with appraisers, title companies and mortgage companies and provides their experience to make the sale go smoothly.
