This Old House - Do-it-Yourself

Do you really need an Agent?

As you consider selling your home, there are many considerations and decisions 

that need to be made.From pricing, to your next Home, should you update first? 

Another thought that plays in the minds of many people that have began the 

process of selling their Home is "If and Why do I need a Realtor, what makes a 

Sellers Agent valuable to Me?” 

There are five areas where I, as a licensed Realtor can help you in your homes 



Pricing your home is a careful balance. Set the price too 

low and you leave money on the table. Set the price too high and your home will 

be on the market a long time, which just compounds the problem as it raises 

questions about it’s sale-ability. As a Realtor, it is my job to know what 

properties like yours have sold for recently, and can utilize the detailed 

history of area sales to tell whether your home...with it’s unique features, 

location and condition - will bring more, or less, than similar or comparable 

listings. And I always have the pulse of the local and regional Real Estate 

market, so I know whether the market is heating up or cooling down, and can 

stay ahead of the trend, pricing your home to get you the highest possible 

price in the least amount of time.


Selling a home can be an emotional experience. After all, 

it’s been a part of your life, perhaps the center of your life, for years. As a 

third party, a Realtor can keep you focused and provide independent feedback on 

things you should do, or changes and repairs that should be made, to help the 

home sell. I will also act as a buffer, and convey your concerns during 

negotiations. As a licensed Realtor, I adhere to a strict code of ethics, and I 

work to represent your best interests. 


Attracting interested people to view and buy your 

home does not happen automatically. I will market your home to the widest 

audience of potential buyers through a well-coordinated multimedia campaign. Of 

course, I will use Signs, Newspaper Ads, Internet and open houses, but you’ll 

also be placed in the Multiple Listing Service where local agents can bring it 

to the attention of their buyers, and then to Realtor.com and Yahoo Classifieds 

Real Estate where it can be viewed by anyone in the world that is relocating to 

this area. 


I can help separate the serious buyers from the “nosy 

neighbors” and thus save you a lot of time and frustration. I usually can 

determine this by asking questions that reveal their motivations and financial 

situations. I also ensure that they have been pre-qualified for a mortgage in 

the amount needed to buy your home. When I bring you an offer on your home, you 

can be sure that the buyers’ finances are verified and the deal is ready to be 



Selling a house can be complicated and there 

is a mountain of paperwork. First there are offers and counter-offers. Then 

come the Contracts of Sale, inspection reports, disclosure forms, deeds, 

mortgage documents. I keep track of it all and see to every detail. My value is 

in avoiding delays and mistakes, and coordinating the timing of the sale of 

this house with the purchase of another, so that you make a smooth transition 

to your new home. 

To Summarize, 

the value that I, or any licensed Realtor brings to someone 

selling a house is, in the end, peace of mind. The marketing, the details, the 

paperwork, and the coordination. I do it every day, and I enjoy the process. So 

relax and leave the details to me. You’ll find that having a knowledgeable 

Realtor beside you throughout the sale of your home is priceless.
