7 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Real Estate Agent When Selling Your Home
The data averages show that sellers benefit when working with a professional real estate agent by receiving a higher sales price in less time with fewer problems. Here are some of the reasons why working with The Vining Team is the right choice:
1. It's a Full-Time Job for Agents
In order to obtain the highest price the market will bear, there are several factors that come into play: local market research for values, extensive and targeted marketing, networking with Buyers and cooperating Agents, setting appointments, negotiating the best deal, and ensuring all milestones and obligations are met to get to the closing table. If your agent is doing things right, real estate is their one and only full-time job. The Vining Group works tirelessly to get the job done successfully and to get their clients the most for their investment.
2. Agents Have Access to Large Networks
It takes more than just listing on websites and placing ads to expose your property to the widest audience of potential Buyers. The Vining Group has been a leader in Lake Oconee real estate since 2003 and we have a rich database of active buyers, as well as relationships with other professionals around the country. There have been many times when we’ve instantly been able to connect Sellers with Buyers simply through our ever-growing network. Keller Williams is also the largest real estate company on the globe, giving our team unparalleled connections worldwide.
3. Pricing Your Property
One of the most important aspects of the selling process is proper pricing. It’s essential to set a price that is appropriate (i.e. it will appraise), while getting the very most the market can bear. It’s a delicate balance that takes data knowledge and experience to find. Working with a local agent is even more important in a dynamic market like we’re experiencing now. The Vining Group will help you get top dollar for your property and not leave money on the table.
4. Marketing Your Property
Marketing is a crucial part of the successful sale of your property. When done professionally and with strategy, your property will receive maximum exposure to reach more potential buyers. These efforts will result in more opportunities to sell in a shorter time frame at a higher price. The Vining Group markets all its listings in a multitude of mediums, including print, digital and social. We also market your property personally by reaching out to our network and in-person through Agent Open Houses and various events.
5. Better Home Presentations
It’s never been truer than in real estate at “first impressions are everything.” Some Buyers will form their opinion within the first few moments of being on the property and in the home. Our team at The Vining Group will help with advice on presenting your home in its best light to potential Buyers. We will assist with any vendors/contractors who may be needed in preparing your home for the market. We will ensure that your home has the best presentation for photography and for showings to make the most of each opportunity.
6. Experience in Negotiating Home Sales
In real estate, there are many angles to consider when it comes to negotiations. The current state of the market will determine your best course of action when examining the price and terms of any presented offer. Whether you're considering multiple offers or working through contingencies, your experienced The Vining Group agent will bring his/her knowledge and expertise to the table to negotiate the best deal for you while handling any obstacle along the way to the closing table.
7. Helps with the Process of Paperwork
A real estate transaction involves contracts, obligations, and deadlines. Our capable team, from the agents to our support staff, will ensure your paperwork is in order, deadlines are met and obligations of the contract are completed. The Vining Group will be there with you to make the home selling process as smooth and pleasant as possible.
