With property value increasing in the state of Utah, many people are wondering what the best step is to selling their home. In fact, you might be wondering, should I sell my home myself or should I get a realtor? In this article, we provide you with 4 reasons why you should get a realtor to sell your home.
4 Reasons Why You Need A Realtor to Sell Your Home
When it comes to selling your home, there are a lot of factors to consider. From legal issues to the staging of your home, we want to share with you why having a realtor is important. Here are four reasons why you should get a realtor when you want to sell your home.
1. There are legal issues related to selling your home
Selling your home comes with legal issues. For example, there are many legal documents that need to be complete before selling your home. In the state of Utah, you need purchase of agreement and any addendums. You also need closing statements, affidavit of title, bill of sale, and other documents. It’s important that you have a realtor look at your documents to make sure that everything aligns. It’s also important to make sure that you’re getting your needs met depending on the contract or documents that you compose.
2. Your home may have imperfections that needed to be fixed
As Thomas Jefferson once said, “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” A lot of times, people ignore the imperfections that need to be fixed before selling their property. For example, if there needs to be new tiles or hardwood floors, a realtor would be honest with you so that you can get the most from your property. But if you’re selling the property on your own then you may feel like fixing certain blemishes aren’t crucial to selling your property. That’s because a realtor is a professional and will be your accountability partner. Your relator will let you know when things need to be fixed and when they should be left alone.
3. You may need help with staging your property
Oftentimes, property owners assume that they can stage their property on their own. The reality though is a realtor will know what type of staging works best for each property. For example, taking out personal items. The reason why taking out personal items is important is so that your potential buyer can see themselves living at the property. Too many personal items can make it difficult for your potential buyer to imagine themselves living there. Another example of staging techniques that realtors will know how to work with is how to use furniture in a small or large room, how to enhance the home’s appeal, and how to deemphasize imperfections rather than calling them out unintentionally.
4. Your realtor is an expert
Your realtor is an expert in selling homes, whereas you are not an expert. Your realtor has experience in getting the most out of the selling process and can help you with negotiating the right price. Additionally, your realtor will:
- Consider potential buyer’s background and ability to purchase the home
- Use their extensive knowledge and experience to draw more buyers
- Link you to their network of people that they know
