The Need for a True Real Estate Professional


Anyone in the real estate industry for any length of time realizes that the education required and the resources necessary to be a true industry professional have dramatically increased over the last two decades. In today’s volatile market, it is necessary to have a true real estate professional if you want to sell your home for the best possible price in the shortest amount of time – and make sure the deal gets to the closing table!

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) explained in a recent Existing Sales Report that 18% of all contracts were cancelled in the previous month. This compares to 16% the prior month and 9% in August of 2010.

The good news is homeowners have realized that attempting to sell their home on their own is an arduous process best left to an industry expert. According to NAR’s 2011 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the percentage of sellers selling on their own, known as For Sale By Owners (FSBOs), has dropped almost in half over the last 20 years:

Bottom Line

If you are selling a home in today’s confusing real estate market, it is best to take on the services of a local real estate expert. He/she will guide you through each step of the transaction thereby increasing the likelihood that there will be fewer inconveniences for you and your family.

    It's true...I remember when there was concern that the internet was going to replace the Realtor. Truth is that the real estate transaction becomes more complex every day and that an experienced professional is highly needed.

    I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.
    Thanks
