Here are ten great reasons why using a Realtor just makes good sense:

1. Until April 30, 2014 we are offering our Maximum Marketing program for 5%1. For Sale by Owners receive on average 10% to 18% less2. than homes sold by Realtors. Do the math.

2. Today's challenging mortgage environment requires knowledge, skill, and experience to get buyers a loan.

3. Realtors have first-hand market knowledge. Because of their access to the most recent market data Realtors are able to give advice on realistic purchase and listing prices. Plus, provide reports of comparable homes for sale and historic market data to ensure the highest return on a real estate investment.

4. Realtors are highly experienced negotiators. One of the most difficult tasks selling a home is handling the negotiations. Often Realtors provide innovative solutions that provide the best options for the sale.

5. Realtors coordinate showings. Today's busy schedules makes it nearly impossible to effectively schedule showings with qualified buyers.

6. Realtors will leverage their networks in order to sell your home more aggressively to other agents. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, and personal contacts.

7. Realtors know how to market homes. Today's buyers expect professional photos and videos on listing. Realtors provide staging and marketing ability across various channels. In addition, they qualify candidates before wasting your time cleaning and vacating your home.

8. Realtors help negotiate inspections. Failed inspections are the number one reason for deal fall-throughs. Realtors often prevent inspection issues from derailing sales.

9. Realtors provide referrals to trusted professionals including: inspectors, lawyers, moving companies, plumbers, title companies that are often needed for a successful sale.

10. Realtors guide the sale to the closing. When a deal falls through it can cause severe hardships financially and logistically plus sending the sale back to square one.
