Selling a property is a very difficult job. You want to sell your property as quickly as possible, and at its full value. You must also be aware of state & federal laws and how they affect your sale; this involves a lot of time, effort, and patience, as well as specialized skills and knowledge. That is why most people turn to a Real Estate Professional for help.
When you sell your property, the Real Estate professional will work for you, and you become a client or customer. You sign a contract with the real estate professional, called a listing contract.The real estate professional then works for you and receives an agreed commission when the property is sold.
In a Seller/Real Estate Professional relationship, the Real Estate Professional guides you throughout the real estate transaction, providing information on such issues as pricing your property, which purchase offers are fair, and how to structure a purchase contract to your advantage.
It is the business of the Real Estate Professional that helps you sell your property with minimum delay, and to help you realize that every dollar is worth. Although the Real Estate Professional works for you and owes you additional services, the Real Estate Professional must also treat his or her buyer(s) customers or clients fairly. Today, however, many property buyers use a buyer's agent, a specialized Real Estate Professional who represents the buyer(s) and works for the best interests of the buyer(s). This makes it even more important for you to have an expert on your side looking out for your best interests.
