When a homeowner decides to sell their house, they obviously want the best price along with a smooth transaction.. To the vast majority of sellers, the most important result is to actually get the home sold.
In order to accomplish all three goals, a seller should realize the importance of using a real estate professional. Technology has changed the purchaser’s behavior during the home buying process. Today, 92% of all buyers use the internet in their home search according to the National Association of Realtors.
However, the report also revealed that 96% percent of buyers that used the internet when searching for a home purchased their home through either a real estate agent/broker or from a builder or builder’s agent. Only 2% purchased their home directly from a seller whom the buyer didn’t know. Buyers search for a home online but then depend on the agent to find the actual home they will buy (52%) or to help them handle the paperwork (24%) or understand the process (24%).
The percentage of buyers that are using the internet to search for homes and information on the home buying process has increased dramatically in the past 10 years. But the wealth of information now available has also resulted in an increase in the percentage of buyers that reach out to real estate professionals to “connect the dots”.  We are strong negotiators. We help in making offers that are fair to both parties. When you want to sell your home, don’t underestimate the role a real estate professional can play in the process.
