Disadvantages of selling and how to deal with them

Disadvantages of selling and how to deal with them

Selling your property yourself will involve a lot of time and effort. Besides, it can be a stressful job and if you already don't have any knowledge of selling, you could make a lot of mistakes. Here are the top disadvantages of personal selling and why you should seek the help of a real estate agent.

  • Appraising Property - There is a good chance that your property has appreciated much more than you know and only a real estate agent can help in creating the ideal valuation. You can set the right price only if you know the current trends in your area, compare properties, and do a lot of traveling.

  • Negotiations & Inspections - One of the main disadvantages of selling assets yourself is that you have to have the negotiate the sale yourself. You will also have to get the inspections done properly. Lack of knowledge and time can be big impediments in this regard.

  • Paperwork - You will need a lot of documents before you can sell your house. Even if you get through the negotiation part successfully, you will have to get tons of paperwork once the sale is finalized. Lots of documents will have to be drafted and signed.

How Can A Real Estate Agent Help You?

Here is how a realtor can help selling property and take off most of the hard work off your shoulders:

1. Pricing the House Correctly

An experienced local realtor will already know your market and competitor properties. He/She will be able to price your house correctly, which will increase the chances of getting your property sold. If you are looking for the right real estate agent for your property, we at HelpFindingMyAgent can help you find the best local realtor who specializes in your market.

2. Efficient & Fruitful Negotiations

This is the No.1 reason why sellers and buyers choose a real estate agent. Most negotiations can turn to be stressful and without knowledge about the process and local market, you are not 'qualified' for the job. Having the right realtor on your side can help in getting you the best-possible price for your property.

One of the best things about having a professional and experienced real estate agent is that they can help keep emotions out of the sale. There's no denying that selling your home can be a highly emotional thing for you. But your agent can help in avoiding mistakes like:

  • Overpricing the property

  • Refusing counter offer because you feel offended

  • Accepting an offer too easily when you are time-bound to sell your house

3. Giving your House the Required Exposure

A realtor can also help give your home the exposure it needs to increase its salability. They can develop the marketing plan, coordinate online marketing, network with other realtors, and host open houses. One of the disadvantages of personal home selling process is that people engage in excess amounts of needless showings. But your agent can determine if someone who desires to see your house is qualified or just curious.
