Many people don't quite grasp the differences of selling with a Realtor vs doing it yourself. Here are a few perks that will be on your side as a seller when you list with a pro!
Coldwell Banker Hedges truly invests in the success of its agents and sellers. Professional photographers are used to take pictures that show your home in its best light. As soon as the listing agreement is submitted to the MLS the pics hit the website. Anyone with a saved search set up through a Realtor has immediate access to those, as well as information about your home. If they like what they see, they can call their agent to set up a showing, and have a chance to be one of the first ones through! You have the reassurance that the buyer is qualified.
Some of you might be wondering what that means? It means that the agent working with the buyer has verified that they are pre qualified. In other words, they have money to put down on a home, they have realistic expectations about what they can purchase, and they have had their financials looked at by a professional lender. Why is this important? Because the last thing you want to do is let strangers who don't have their finances in order through your home. It would lead to no progress in selling, and you would be out wasted time and expectations.
