There's a lot involved in a successful home sale. Here's the short list: time; knowledge about your local neighborhood; experience with the rules and regulations associated with selling real estate in your local area; marketing expertise; as well as top-notch negotiating skills.
While it may be tempting to skip signing a listing agreement to eliminate a real estate agent’s commission: Don’t do it. By hiring an experienced REALTOR® as your Listing Agent, you are tapping into the experience and insight you need to sell a house quickly and more efficiently.
After all, a real estate transaction is probably one of the biggest financial projects you will undertake. A professional, full-time REALTOR(R) can save you time, money and lots of headaches. All agreements of sale for real estate must be in writing. Don't sign one without reviewing it with a REALTOR(R) first!
When a home owner hires a Listing Agent, that real estate agent has a fiduciary duty to work exclusively for the seller and act in the best interests. When a seller hires a Listing Agent to sell a house, they sign a written agreement outlining several items: their working relationship, how the real estate agent will market the home, real estate commission and terms of the home’s listing.
It’s always wise to interview a few real estate agents to represent you when you are selling a house. If you own a house in the Greater Pittsburgh real estate market, one of our highly experienced, full-time professionals can help.
