Why A Realtor?

20 Reasons why you should consider retaining
Myrna & Bill McGregor to sell your home.

  1. You have but one property to show. Today homes are bought by comparison. Buyers on average inspect 12 homes before buying.
  2. You are not aware of the tastes and requirements of the buyer, nor do you have first-hand knowledge of competitive values.
  3. You are not familiar with writing a contract that is valid and enforceable. I know contract law.
  4. The buyer is timid about discussing his financial status with you and you are similarly reluctant to qualify.
  5. You do not have time to leave your job to help the buyer arrange his financing, nor do you have expert knowledge of the current home loan market.
  6. You cannot readily negotiate price with a buyer but the third party, your Realtor, can work out the negotiations.
  7. The average visitor will not admit freely to you his likes or dislikes, yet these must be brought into the open.
  8. You cannot follow-up since this will likely be interpreted as anxiety to sell in a hurry.
  9. You may make needless outlays to improve your property for selling. My experience can save you needless expense.
  10. You hear conflicting suggestions from well meaning friends. I have answers from experience.
  11. You may show your property to 100 would-be buyers, spend your time, money and effort, and eventually pay a commission to a broker who properly screens prospective purchasers.
  12. You may accept an insincere offer and then spend months, perhaps in litigation, to free your property in order to put it on the market once again.
  13. You may find buyer's and seller's personalities conflict, thereby losing a good sale. The Realtor, as a third party, can diplomatically consummate the sale.
  14. Most buyers seek the services of a reputable broker because they realize the pitfalls of direct negotiations.
  15. The Realtor will enlist the services of fellow Realtors giving the owner the benefit of the entire local sales force.
  16. The Realtor attempts to price the property to sell at fair market value. The average owner tends to over-price but may accept a price below the market value.
  17. "For Sale By Owner" signs says "curiosity seekers welcome". Your Realtor will screen the lookers from the qualified buyers.
  18. Your Realtor guarantees his work. I get paid only when your home is sold and you have received your proceeds from the sale.
  19. Realtors are stakeholders for the deposit (known as earnest money) by operating a company trust account.
  20. A Realtor absorbs all the costs of advertising and promotion during the listing period and only gets reimbursed by commission.
