There are a few things throughout your life where you should put your trust in a professional. You may want to think twice before you perform your own root canal, as there are plenty of risks involved when you’re not properly trained for the job. Believe it or not, there are lots of risks involved when you choose to sell your home without a professional Ruhl&Ruhl Realtor as well.
Your Ruhl&Ruhl Realtor’s knowledge is priceless. Just like your dentist, your agent is a local expert in their field. He or she went to classes for their craft, and takes continuing education to ensure they are up to date on important information. Your Realtor can provide important insight on disclosures, building codes, and so much more that consumers can’t access online alone. He or she will ensure that a seller is fully prepared before the home even hits the market.
Will selling your home be your full time job? Will you be able to show your home at a moment’s notice? Will you be able to manage buyer and agent questions, concerns and objections throughout the day? Will you be available for inspections, potential vendors to visit and update the property, assessors, visits to the lawyer, and any other issues that may pop up along the way?
Do you know what small improvements could be made to your home so that it will sell? Are you actually making unnecessary improvements? Do you know the best contacts for professional photography or interior decorating to truly make your home stand out?
As we mentioned before, your Realtor is a local expert. They have access to statistics on the local market trends, and can tell you everything about the buyer demographic for your home. Knowing the buyer demographic means they will also know exactly how to market your home to get it sold quickly.
As a seller, you may have only seen one purchase agreement in your life. (The one for the house you currently own). So when you receive an offer, what are you looking for? Will you need to pay a lawyer to help you go over terms and conditions that could be disadvantageous?
Do you know how to walk the tight line between keeping your interests in mind while keeping the buyer interested? An agent’s negotiation skills are key here because not only do they know exactly how to read an offer, but they can also ensure that you get the best deal out of the situation.
Inspection and Repair Know-How
It’s hard to predict what inspections to expect, but a Ruhl&Ruhl Realtor can help you post inspection. Most agents have a list of people that are available at a moment's notice to help repair or replace items that are flagged by an inspector.
There are many questions that pop up all throughout the process, from showings to offers. What items need to be followed up on? What happens when the property isn’t appraised for the contract sale price? What happens when the buyer’s financing falls through? What happens when issues with the home inspection potentially derails the deal?
What is the protocol for post-closing? How soon do you have to be out of the home? A Realtor will be there to answer any pre and post-closing questions.
Do you still have questions? Concerns? That’s okay! Selling your home is one of the biggest financial moves you can make in your life! But having a local, expert by your side will make the process so much easier.
