Why Use a REALTOR® When Selling a Home?

A real estate agent from our home selling team can help you understand everything you need to know about the sales process.

Not all real estate licensees are the same; only those who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR “®” trademark on their business cards and other marketing and sales literature.

REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reported that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Real estate transactions are one of the biggest financial dealings of most people’s lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $250,000. If you had a $250,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a certified professional accountant? If you had a $250,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be wise to work with a professional REALTOR® and home selling team when your home is on the market.

If you’re still not convinced of the value of a REALTOR®, here are more reasons to use one to sell your Dallas – Ft. Worth real estate:

  1. When selling your home, your REALTOR® can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace as well as the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.
  2. Often, your REALTOR® can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of your property.
  3. Your REALTOR® markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. In many markets across the country, over half of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer.
    Your REALTOR® acts as the marketing coordinator, distributing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. The REALTOR® Code of Ethics requires REALTORS® to utilize these cooperative relationships when they benefit their clients.
  4. Your REALTOR® will know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. NAR studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with the help of your REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
  5. Your REALTOR® can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing – and a lot of possible pitfalls. Your REALTOR® can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.
  6. Your REALTOR® can help close the sale of your home. Issues may arise between the initial sales agreement and closing (also called settlement or escrow), for example, unexpected repairs might be required to obtain financing or a title problem is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your REALTOR® is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing.

What People Are Saying

  • Tara is the utmost professional with great interpersonal skills. She's very knowledgeable about Real Estate and was a tremendous resource for our home purchase. Tara guided us through the entire process and made sure everything went smoothly. We moved over 1,700 miles which could have been quite stressful but Tara made sure everything stayed on track. Top notch negotiator and very responsive. I highly recommend Tara for buying or selling. You won't be disappointed.

    Everyone we’ve dealt with at Team Nelson has absolutely gone above and beyond what we would have expected from any realtor. They helped us get our house sold quickly and painlessly for the price we wanted. When we didn’t move forward with the build we intended to and had ongoing issues with the builders even after the fact Bill and Tara have still been in close contact with us trying to make sure we’re still taken care of. They genuinely care about making sure their clients are happy. We appreciate everything they’ve done and would 100% recommend them to anyone.

  • I have bought and sold 3 homes with Bill and team. They have a well run staff who knows how to get things done. Bill is quick to return calls and very knowledgeable about the industry and market. Price recommendations are spot on as both a buyer and seller. Will use him again in a heartbeat.

    Tara sold my house before it even officially hit the market and for well over asking! She is very knowledgeable and happily answers all questions (even the hundreds of first time home buyer questions I had for her)! I would recommend Tara to anyone looking for a first class buying/selling...
