Why should you sell with Duke Real Estate? Keep reading and you'll learn why people trust Filip Hajduk to sell their home for more.

what to look for in a real estate agent

When you think it's time to make a move, you'll need to hire a real estate agent. Finding the right realtor is like finding the right lawyer or accountant. You don't want just anybody to sell your home. Many realtors get a license because they believe that houses are easy to sell. While there is some truth to that, the fact is that listing a house for sale is not the same as selling a house. A good realtor will put their team to work to get your listing into the right hands at the right time.

benefits of using a real estate agent to sell

When you use a real estate agent to sell your home, you're getting access to resources you wouldn't have otherwise. A real estate agent will provide you with comparable properties in your neighbourhood, help you to process legal paperwork, and negotiate with agents that are making offers on your property. If you use a professional real estate agent, such as Filip Hajduk, you can expect your property to be shown to a roster of active clients, agents, and brokerages who are already in the market for a house. 

A professional real estate agent will also make sure your house is listed on databases such as MLS, which gets shown on thousands of websites the moment it becomes live. You'll also need to be ready to answer calls from real estate agents who have interested clients. You'll need to be ready to book showings and open houses. Having someone who speaks the language of other realtors is a huge benefit, as many real estate agents may try to take advantage of your inexperience. 

selling home without real estate agent

If you choose to sell your home without a real estate agent, you should be prepared to do a lot of the heavy lifting yourself. Many people who have taken this route have later regretted not going with an agent. Nevertheless, you will need to prepare all the paperwork for your home to present to agents, lawyers, and banks. 

Make any final touch-ups to your home to polish it up, trying to increase it's property value as much as possible before listing it for sale on the housing market. This can include: cleaning services, painting, landscaping, staging, and of course professional photography. Be sure to turn your photography into a virtual tour, which you'll need when you start marketing your property.

Now that your property is ready to be sold, you can get the word out by calling as many real estate agents in your area (this is what an agent would do for you). Let them know about your property and that you are happy to have people come take a look. Get creative with any kind of marketing strategies you can come up with. Take out classified ads or run ads on Google or Facebook.

If you get an offer, be ready to read and understand the paperwork. You can always make or change conditions that need to be accepted by both parties. This is a critical step in the negotiation process. You'll need to take your time to fully understand what you're signing. At this time, competing agents may present you with a very limited amount of time to decide. 

Once you've decided to sell and sign the paperwork, you will need to get in touch with your bank and lawyer to finalize all the official documents.
