Why Should I List My Home with a Realtor Instead of Selling It Myself?

A professional realtor can negotiate a contract that can close.

Most real estate contracts are rather straight-forward. There are regulations that must be followed in each state, and lawyers prepare standard contracts to meet those regulations. Within those contracts, though, are blanks to be filled in. Those blanks are where you need the expertise of a licensed Realtor.

At WEICHERT, REALTORS® — New Colony, we can help simplify the home selling process by knowing how to negotiate. The negotiation begins when you begin to receive offers on your home. We will disclose all offers and together we can assess the strength of each one. We’ll determine if you can accept an offer outright, or if you should counteroffer. Within that offer we can review the buyer’s conditions, such as length of time to conduct a home inspection, a settlement date and your agreement to offer any closing costs. We can explain what will work best for you as the seller, and help you to avoid the snags that typically arise.

We will continue to negotiate with the buyer’s agent through the acceptance of the offer and completion of the purchase contract. Your agent will coordinate with the buyer’s agent to help make the house available for inspections and appraisals. If repairs are needed, we can recommend local companies that we work with on a regular basis, so that you can meet the demands of the buyer quickly and cost effectively. In all aspects, WEICHERT, REALTORS® — New Colony and your professional realtor are available to support you through each step of the home-selling process.
