5 Reasons To Hire A Real Estate Professional Before Entering The Market!

Hiring a Realtor before you even entering the Real Estate Market is a sure fire way to maximize your investment in your home.    

There are 5 reasons that you want a Real Estate Professional securely in your corner before listing your home. 

Navigate the Paperwork.

Do you even know how to navigate the offers, the sign back and changes?  This can be a complicated process and while your lawyer can handle the details of risk, only a Realtor can let you know if the requested numbers are valid and in line with current market standards.

You Found the Perfect House on

Great, now what?  Do you know how to approach the Realtor handling the sale?  What happens if multiple people are interested in this same house?  How do you make sure that YOUR offer is taken seriously? How do you put in an offer, that ensures you are not committed to the purchase if your current home remains on the market? Do you know what questions to ask to make sure that you are not saddled with a new home that requires an extreme amount of investment or repairs?  Once you move in, all you want to do is unpack and make it your own.  No one wants to find out about that crack in the basement foundation that was hidden behind the exercise equipment.

Are you a Good Negotiator? Do you really have time?

This is a huge part of the work needed.  Contemplate the amount of time that must in invested in negotiating with prospective buyers, home inspectors, appraisers etc.  Most of us generally have job that we must focus on, or families to spend time with.  Having a Professional on point for all of the multitude of contacts, details, and requests can alleviate a lot of stress on you.  Moving is considered one of the top 5 most stressful events in your life.  Anything that can be done to reduce this stress is a gift you will appreciate down the road.

What is the Right Price Point?

We are all invested in our homes, and the work that we did to make it better for us.  The question that often eludes most of us, is did we make it more valuable to someone ELSE?  Our emotional connections to the upgrades and improvements that we did to our house may impede a timely turnover for the sale of your home.  Having a professional look through an unbiased eye can help set a price that will ensure you maximize your investment and sell quickly on the market. 

The Market Changes Frequently

It is hard to keep up with market changes and trends.  There are so many factors that can impact the price of your home in ways that most of us can't keep up with.  Real Estate Professionals do this every day, and it is their job to stay current with trends and manage your expectations.


Most of us value our time and sanity.  Investing in a Real Estate Professional can ensure that you maximize your investment dollars and move with a manageable amount of stress.
