According to the National Association of REALTORS, the “typical For Sale By Owner home sold for $208,000 compared to $235,000 among agent-assisted home sales.” The home at 3621 Wentwood Drive in University Park is listed for $3,300,000.

For most people, a home is their biggest asset. The Keeping Current Matters blog offers three compelling reasons to work with an expert advisor when considering the sale or purchase of your biggest investment.

1. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?
It is important for your home to be priced correctly from the start to attract the right buyers and shorten the time that it’s on the market. According to the National Association of REALTORS, the “typical For Sale By Owner home sold for $208,000 compared to $235,000 among agent-assisted home sales.”

2. What do you do with all this paperwork?
Each state has different regulations regarding the contracts required for a successful sale, and these regulations are constantly changing. A true Real Estate Professional is an expert in their market and can guide you through the stacks of paperwork necessary to make your dream a reality.

3. Are you a good negotiator?
After looking at the list of parties you need to be prepared to negotiate with, you’ll realize the value in selecting a Real Estate Professional. From the buyer (who wants the best deal possible), to the home inspection companies, to the appraiser, there are at least 11 different people you will have to be knowledgeable with and answer to, during the process.
