Why Should I Use a Realtor

Why Should I Use a REALTOR® to Sell My Home?

While there are many vehicles now available to help individuals sell their own homes, you need to consider the costs and benefits of doing it yourself, versus hiring a professional. Here are just a few reasons we think you should seriously consider engaging the services of a professional REALTOR® when it comes time to put your house on the market.

Time is Money: Your time is valuable. If you don’t use a real estate professional, you can expect to spend a lot of personal time selling your home. Considering your work, family, and personal commitments. Is that the best use of your time?

It’s a Big Deal: Selling (and buying) a home is a big deal. Real estate is a highly regulated industry. And laws are ever-changing. You need to be up to date on the latest ethical practices, along with practical considerations that you that can only be learned over years of hands-on experience negotiating real estate transactions.

Professional Representation: Your Hooper Home Team REALTOR® is your representative and we are required by law to represent your best interests to the best of our ability.

Hiring an experienced REALTOR® is similar to hiring an accountant to help you file income taxes, or a mechanic to fix your car. If you had the time to master those specialties, you would be doing it yourself.

Objectivity: Our job is to point out the pros and cons for all the decisions you will be making throughout the home selling process. We help you to make informed decisions, not just emotionally-based decisions.

Negotiating Skills: Negotiating the best deal for you is not an exact science. Effective negotiation involves a set of skills that we have garnered over many years, and hundreds of real estate transactions. Our win-win approach to negotiations has earned us a reputation for excellence in this area.
