In this day and age, a lot of people think that they can sell their home themselves without the use of an agent. Sure, you can take some photos of your house and post them on-line with a "For Sale By Owner" listing that you did all by yourself, but the chances of you getting the purchase price you want may not happen. You also have to think about how often you will be showing the house and whether or not you have the time to do so. See below for other reasons why you need to hire a realtor to sell your home.
Realtors have the experience and knowledge to sell a home. There's a little more involved than just selling your home, and a realtor has the knowledge to get the job done properly to protect you. When looking for a realtor, look for one that has been in the business for awhile, and don't be afraid to ask for references
A realtor acts as a buffer between you and the buyer. They can help you by asking questions such as what they did or didn't like about the house, which most buyers may not tell you this information directly. This feedback can be used to help you make updates if necessary to sell your home. Buyers may have a lot of questions as well, and a realtor can be there to help answer these questions, rather than you having to answer them all yourself.
A realtor has knowledge of the real estate market, and knows what houses in your neighborhood are going for, and what they have sold for. They can help guide you as to what price to start selling your house at, and also tell you what offers you should or shouldn't take.
A realtor also has the skills to negotiate to get you a better offer if necessary. They don't have the emotional attachment that you do to your home, which makes it easier for them to talk about the home and negotiate a purchase price a little better than you could.
Realtors are necessary to sell a home and for buying. They are there to help protect you as the seller or buyer and to get you the best offer and purchase price they can get for you.
