When a home owner decides to sell their home, they obviously want the best possible price for it with the least amount of hassles along the way. However, for the vast majority of home sellers, the most important result is actually getting their homes actually sold.

 

In order to accomplish all three goals, a home seller should realize the importance of using a real estate broker. We realize that technology has changed the purchaser’s behaviour during the home buying process. According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2016 Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers, the first step that, “…44% of recent buyers took in the home buying process was to look online at properties for sale.”

 

However, the report also revealed that 96% of buyers who used the Internet when searching for homes purchased their homes through either a real estate broker or from a builder or through a builder’s saleperson. Only 2% purchased their homes directly from a seller...

Your home isn’t selling and yet the current, local real estate market is really quite active. You naturally ask yourself, “Why?”

 

Sadly, not all real estate agents are equal. Some only use the classic 3 P’s of real estate marketing: Put a sign in the yard, Put the home in the local MLS System, and Pray that the home sells.

 

But there are also some other sure signs that it’s time for you to face the music and hire someone else:

 

1. The online photos leave a lot to be desired. With real estate being a cut-throat and expensive business to be in, many real estate agents are trying to cut expenses wherever they can.
