People often think that they can save themselves money by selling their own home. They don't have to pay commission to a Realtor, and they also have greater control over what happens in the sale. 

One thing a lot of people never consider about selling their own home is that they have never sold a home before. Some people have the time, knowledge and expertise to sell their own home, but the truth is that a lot of people don't have the necessary skills. However, if you are selling your own home, I have a list of things that you ought to be ready to tackle if you're selling on your own.

  1. Be Prepared to Negotiate: On top of doing your own marketing, you'll have to do your own negotiating. This might become difficult for you because you're probably emotionally attached to your home, and there is no room for emotion when you're doing business. An agent working on your behalf would be able to make good offers without being clouded by emotions. 
  2. You Have to Attract Buyers: Agents know how to find buyers, and they can funnel them from around the world right into your home. Unless you're pretty internet savvy, you may have trouble exposing your home to qualified buyers. 
  3. An Agent Can Sell Your Home for More: Exactly how much more money can an agent get you? On average, an agent can sell your home for 13% more money. Keep in mind that 13% is only an average, too. This means that an agent's commission is pretty much already paid for.

There are many different reasons to hire a real estate agent to sell your home, and these are just a few.

We can offer you a team of qualified professionals that will be at your service to sell your home quickly and efficiently. If you're looking to buy a home in the Wenatchee Valley or in the Leavenworth area, please don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. 

We would love to be of service to you!
