THREE REASONS YOU SHOULD HIRE AN AGENT TO SELL YOUR HOME

1) PRICE Last year, the typical for sale by owner (FSBO) home sold for $208,700, while homes sold by agents went for an average of $235,000. Nearly half of FSBO sellers choose that route because they want to avoid paying an agent’s commission fee. But in reality, we see that sellers using an agent net more on the sale than FSBO sellers — even after the commission is paid. 15% of FSBO sellers say that getting the right price for their home is the most difficult part of the sale.

2) MARKETING AND EXPOSURE More than 92% of home buyers search online for homes, and they agree that the most stressful part of the buying process is finding the right property. When an agent lists your home on the MLS, it will appear on the popular home search sites. Buyers can also check out property details like beds, baths, and square footage, and view high quality photographs showcasing your home’s best features. Meanwhile, less than 20% of last year’s FSBO sellers posted their homes on local or national search sites, or on online classified sites. The most commonly used marketing tool by FSBO sellers is a yard sign.

3) PAPERWORK AND NEGOTIATION No one likes red tape. Understanding and performing paperwork is a most difficult task for many FSBO sellers. Agents manage buyer and seller transactions each day. You shouldn’t be expected to know everything, but agents have the expertise needed to get you the most for your home.

WHEN YOU HIRE AN AGENT, YOU GET:

1. The right listing price, and a built-in negotiator to make sure you get nothing less

2.Visibility on home search sites and other online marketing channels

3. The bare minimum of paper work, and knowledge that will make you confident when you head to the closing table

5 Star Review From Havertown Homeseller

A review located on Trulia from 1/19/2015 from Havertown Home Seller  

“I interviewed 5 agents when I decided to list my Havertown home on the market in September 2014. Kevin Toll was far & away the clear choice. He shot me straight, skipped the fluff, and promised to deliver results. He guaranteed his presence at Home Inspect AND the Appraisal. He always answered emails/texts within an hour, usually within 5 minutes. He is professionally direct and to the point and he will be real with you. His direct style is refreshing in these times of overstated sales pitches, empty showmanship and gimmicks that can’t deliver. You will be treated like his 1 and only client.”
