Below are some common questions I receive from people looking to sell their home:

The cost varies between agents and circumstances, however 6% of the purchase price is the national average. This amount is ultimately split between the agent who is representing you and is listing your home, and the agent who represents the buyer. Keep in mind that agents do not get paid by the hour and they do not get paid unless your home sells. Therefore, an agent works hard to sell your home. They don’t keep standard office hours, meaning that once you list with them, they are continually available to you, and to the buyers interested in your home, including nights and weekends. It is not uncommon for an agent to spend 3 months or more, working to sell a home. For each hour they spend with you, either in person or on the phone, an agent typically spends about 8 hours doing paperwork, communicating with buyers agents, researching repairs, taking photographs, and handling behind-the-scene details, to ensure your experience is pleasant and trouble-free.

An agent should be chosen carefully. Some agents are willing to move heaven and earth to ensure you have the best possible representation. Other agents can end up treating you less like a valued client and more like an annoyance. At Buy With Brady, our clients become our friends and extended family, and you end up getting much more than a Realtor, we become your FAMILY Realtor, and we take pride in all of our client relationships!

Many people will opt to try and sell a home on their own, in order to avoid the expense associated with paying a Realtor to do it for them, bout most who attempt to do so ultimately decide to go with an agent, for many reasons.

You may work full-time and find that you are losing out on buyers who cannot conform to your schedule. Having a real estate agent list your home ensures that someone is ALWAYS there to allow access to your home, no matter what time a buyer may wish to see it.

Your agent is familiar with seller’s rights and will act as a “watchdog” that protects you from unscrupulous buyers who may wish to take advantage. They know how to negotiate deals, and handle all of the legal requirements for a home sale to ensure there are no problems with the transaction.

A staggering 90% of all homes found by buyers, are found through the MLS listing system. The MLS system is a private listing system which can be accessed only by licensed real estate professionals who have met all legal and educational requirements, as set forth by the state. By not listing your home on the MLS your home will simply be invisible to the vast majority of buyers in the marketplace. Even very popular home websites pull their listing from the MLS in each region.

A home that is priced appropriately for market will sell very quickly! Generally, within the first two to six weeks. A home should not be on the market for more than 100 days. If it is there for much longer than that you may need to ask your agent to reevaluate your unique circumstance and adjust the list price.
