Denver is seeing a strong Seller's real estate market with most homes only on the market for hours!    The signs go up, the lines of car with potential buyers are lining the street, and the next thing you know, it is quiet.    The home went under contract.   Sellers are seeing this and thinking it must be so easy, they can do it.


 Homes for sale

Sounds like it is EASY PEASY to sell your home right?      Putting the sign out, and allowing buyers to view a home are the easy parts.   Are you prepared for these items ---

  • Phone calls all day long asking questions about your home.
  • Are the Buyers touring your home pre-approved?
  • What listing price do you list your home for?
  • Are you ready to be home for all the showings?
  • Are your valuables secure?
  • Are you ready with the additional disclosure paperwork needed to sell a home?


After a couple of days, you receive several contracts.   How do you know which offer is best for you?    Is is ONLY all about the dollar amount offered?    There are terms that Sellers always need to review and factor into the decision.


What happens when the appraisal is done, and it comes back UNDER the purchase price?   Do you know how to provide data to the appraiser to support the sales price?   REALTORS® can review the comparables to support a sales price both for the market as well as the appraiser. 


These are all items listing agents do for their Sellers to ensure seeing the highest and best offer.   A REALTOR also monitors the process with the title company, as well as the financing for the buyer.     In most cases, hiring a REALTOR® will give a Seller the opportunity for a higher sales price and a smoother closing.

Gabe, thank you for the reblog, and if a homeowner goes FSBO in a large city that is experiencing multiple offers, good luck.   They won't have the exposure REALTORS do with the MLS.

Having a professional guide you through the process and provide the correct forms, make sure buyers keep to deadlines, and to explain the process is why sellers hire a real estate agent. But most important is to know you have someone on your side protecting your interests.
