Why You Should Forgo Using a Real Estate Agent

(The Express Wire via Comtex)

The process of selling a home can be difficult. There are a lot of rules and regulations that people have to know. For this reason, many people decide to work with a real estate agent. In many cases, people simply assume this is the right thing to do. After all, hiring an industry expert sounds like a good idea. Too often, people don't realize how much they are giving up when they hire a real estate agent. Working with a professional home buying service, such as 810 Home Buyers, is often a better alternative.

Real Estate Agents Charge a Commission

The first big problem with hiring a real estate agent is that they are going to charge a commission. Agents expect to be paid for their professional expertise, which is fair. Most real estate agents will say that the commission is justified because the home is going to sell for more money if they are involved. On the other hand, the commission that a real estate agent is going to take might be as high as six percent. This might end up being thousands of dollars that the seller loses to the agent.

When someone hires a real estate agent, they are going to find that they are only one of many clients. A real estate agent is typically trying to sell (or buy) multiple homes at the same time. Therefore, when someone hires a real estate agent, it might be hard to receive their full attention. It is important to make sure that the realtor is doing their due diligence when selling a home. This can be hard.

The process of selling a home can be difficult, particularly if someone is trying to line up their schedule so that they sell their current home and buy a new one at the same time. When someone works with a real estate agent, they are tied to that agent's schedule. This means that the process of selling and buying a house might not line up. For this reason, people need to work with a professional service that will stick to their schedule.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to working with a real estate agent. Instead of paying an agent a large commission, there are professional home buying services available as well. In this situation, sellers can forgo the use of an agent, receive more money for their house, and work on their own schedule. For this reason, many people looking to sell a home are deciding to skip the process of using a real estate agent and are going with a home buying service instead.
