It may seem like something undesirable to give a commission to a realtor…except for the actual statistical fact that homes that are sold by owners, often sell for 24% less than homes with realtors. Wow! You may need to read that again —- 24% less! There are a myriad of reasons why, but the basic one is that realtors know what they are doing in maximizing the sales price of the home, while owners, just think they do. When you think that 5% is the cost to have professionals handle your real estate transactions, losing 24% will cost you a lot more in your potential return.
There are important things like home staging and photography that help potential buyers see increased value in the home. And, we aren’t just talking about cell phone photos and a few pieces of furniture. Seasoned professional real estate agents like those within The Michelle Hirsch Group know exactly what’s needed to get a home ready for a maximum profit and cater to the exact buyers looking for the home.
