The Difference Between Selling a Home on Your Own vs. Hiring a Real Estate Agent , Burnsville, Minnesota

When it comes time to sell your home, you must decide whether to list it yourself or hire a real estate agent. Although the first option may seem like a practical way to save money, there are numerous benefits to working with a professional that far outweigh the cost. Consider this carefully before deciding which route to take. The team at Marshall & Koopman REAL ESTATE has helped numerous sellers in Burnsville, MN, achieve their goal of closing a quick and lucrative deal.

Below, they discuss the biggest differences between partnering with a real estate agent and listing a home yourself:

  • Setting the Right Price: If you price your home too high, you risk losing the interest of potential buyers, but going too low means losing out on profit. Determining the proper value to place on your property is difficult without the assistance of a real estate agent. They have the knowledge and tools to accurately determine what your home is worth so you can price it accordingly.
  • real estate agentDealing With Red Tape: Selling a house requires quite a bit of paperwork. There are many reports and contracts to go through, and even the slightest error can result in a delayed or lost sale. An agent will take care of a great deal of the paperwork for you, and most importantly, make sure everything is submitted correctly to avoid any legal problems. 
  • Marketing Your Listing: Marketing a real estate listing is hard work. You want to reach as many people as possible, which means knowing which outlets to use. Simply putting a “for sale” sign in your yard isn’t sufficient. Real estate agents have access to a variety of resources and platforms that allow them to attract a wide audience of buyers. They know where and how to advertise your home for the most effective results.

There are many challenges to selling a house. Before you decide to take them on by yourself, think about all the ways a real estate agent will make the experience less stressful and more lucrative.
