When it comes to a home sale, most people will sell their property through an estate agent rather than privately. According to recent studies, it is estimated that 99% of property sales are completed through estate agents, the reason being that despite having to incur agency fees, real estate agents can be worth their weight in gold.
Here are some tips on why you should hire an Estate Agent
Access to a large database of properties.
This ultimately saves you plenty of time and energy. An estate agent is in contact with many potential buyers who have listed their criteria with the agent and who are actively searching for property, ready to start viewing homes for sale immediately.
Knowledge of the local market.
An Estate Agent can conduct a property valuation. Their knowledge of the local area, as well as the demand and types of properties for sale within a certain area will allow them to calculate your property's value accurately and realistically for a fast, successful sale. Agents will verify why your home will sell, the kind of demand and interested clients that may potentially turn into buyers and how best to market the property to their target audience.
Estate agents will go above and beyond to market your property through their property website, online real estate portals, social media channels, magazines and real estate brochures. Agents will do their utmost to maximise the potential reach of their audience to ensure that your property is seen by the right buyers for the best possible chance of closing a sale at the best price.
The process of purchasing property is simplified
From the viewing – which is set up by the agent to the negotiation process - managed on your behalf and not to mention the process of communicating with Lawyers and banks where needed. Should any problems arise throughout the selling process, your estate agent will provide you with guidance and advice to overcome any obstacles that may be blocking a quick sale of your property.
A Real Estate Agent is an expert in negotiation and communication skills.
