Thinking of selling or buying a home yourself? Here's 7 reasons why you should call The Proctor Team

Selling your home is a big task, but working with a realtor will make that task a whole lot easier. From accommodating busy lifestyles, to getting through the legalities and paperwork, here are seven reasons why hiring a realtor is the best way to sell your home.

Sell Your Home For The Right Price

There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to understanding the true value of your home. Of course, an appraisal or property value assessment can set you on the right track, but working with a realtor will tell you exactly where your home stands in comparison to the other properties in the market. With an experienced eye, a realtor will identify the key characteristics that determine the overall price, and use that, in conjunction with the best market analysis tools available, to determine the true value of your home. An effectively priced home will generate competing offers and can often drive up the final sale value. Our market analysis takes into account the most actively searched prices and home values throughout your respective area, including expired listings and properties still on the market. Overall, you can be confident that your home is competitively priced to sell while not being undervalued.

Convenience Is Key

Accommodating home viewings can be a major disruption in our already busy lives. Working with an agent keeps your daily schedule on track and limits interruptions. Real estate agents work with clients to understand their family’s schedule and privacy needs. We are the point of contact for setting up all viewing appointments with prospective buyers, and completely eliminate the extra time that would be spent communicating back and forth with interested customers. No need to reschedule a doctor’s appointment or miss a soccer game, a realtor can keep your life on track while ensuring your home is receiving all the necessary exposure it requires, when it requires it.   

Providing The Right Exposure

Marketing your home properly will get you the right buyer faster. We work with the seller to help develop a listing that highlights each home’s unique and sellable aspects, and we know what features to emphasize to peak a buyer’s interest. The next step is to showcase these appealing attributes on all the appropriate mediums. Your home is presented to a wide audience of buyers on the local MLS®, on new listings sheets, within real estate publications, on our website, and the appropriate social media channels. Selling your home will have an immediate advantage as our nation-wide network of professional real estate contacts and buyers will also have the opportunity to check out your listing. Over 80% of buyers check the web first when looking for a home, and our innovative website ensures your home listing is highly visible and presented in a professional and attractive manner.

Getting The Best Deal

Selling a home can be an emotional and stressful time in one’s life. Having an experienced and knowledgeable professional handling negotiations is one of the biggest advantages of using a realtor. When the offers start coming in, you can trust that we can represent your best interests and ensure that you’re getting the best price and favorable closing terms. You can be rest assured that all the details will be clear and that no hidden surprises will be waiting for you at closing.  

Paperwork Know-How

It can be a shock to see just how much paperwork is involved in selling and buying a home. Not only is reading through and understanding the terminology time consuming, but it can lead to unneeded obstacles if something is missed or misunderstood. A realtor has the proper education and experience to guide homeowners through the home buying and selling process as efficiently as possible.

Finding Your Perfect Fit

Spending hours searching for a home that meets your lifestyle needs is time most of us don’t have. Deciding on the right home style, neighbourhood, and price range can be overwhelming. A realtor can help make the new home search much more enjoyable by providing you with an overview of what homes are available in the market that would best fit your life. With access to thousands of listings and a thorough market understanding, I am confident that we can find you the home of your dreams.  

Industry Connections

Working with an industry expert has many perks. One of the biggest benefits, and often most overlooked, are the industry connections that realtors have. Being connected to thousands of realtors means that we have access to more market and property details than the average consumer, and we can get the information you’re looking for as quickly as possible. Working with different client needs and home situations often connects us with other home professionals that we can refer you to if need be. Your home may need a minor repair, or maybe you are searching for mortgage services; as your realtor we can help guide you to the right professionals that will make your home buying or selling journey a smooth and enjoyable process.
