“Why should we hire a real estate agent?” some may wonder, and rightfully so. Some do OK, many don’t. Here are a few reasons why you may want to hire The Gray’s Team.
You don’t need to know everything about buying and selling real estate if you hire a real estate professional who does. Also, a realtor can help you put your home on the market at the right moment and at the right price.
Agents take the spam out of your property showings and visits. If you’re a seller, your agent will filter all those phone calls that lead to nowhere from lookie-loos and try to induce serious buyers to immediately write an offer.
Agents either possess intimate knowledge or they know where to find the industry buzz about your neighbourhood. They can identify comparable sales and hand these facts to you, in addition to pointing you in the direction where you can find more data on schools, crime or demographics. For example, you may know that a home down the street was on the market for $350,000, but an agent will know it had upgrades and sold at $285,000 after 65 days on the market and after twice having the sale collapse.
Make sure the house is always clean and ready to be shown. Leave some lights on and open curtains and blinds.
Don’t just sign the first contract offered. Work with our team to execute a strong contract.
Schedule the closing and have the house presentable for the new homeowners.
