9 Things You Can Expect When You Hire A Realtor® To Sell Your House

So, you’ve decided to sell your house in the Dallas area. Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing, or relocating for work, the process of selling your home can be daunting. After all, this is likely one of the biggest transactions of your life!

Lucky for you, hiring a local professional Realtor® can take a lot of the stress and guesswork out of the equation.

Here are nine things you can expect when you hire a real estate agent to sell your home.

What To Expect From Your Agent when selling your house in the Dallas area. Information for Home sellers presented by Oleg Sedletsky, Realtor in Dallas TX

1. CMA:

The first thing your Realtor® will do is prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). This is basically an analysis of similar homes in your area that have recently sold. This will give you an idea of what your home is worth, and determine the right price to list your home at.

2. Listing Your Home:

Once you’ve agreed on a listing price, your real estate agent will get to work creating listings for your home. These will be posted on MLS and thousands of  home-selling websites like Zillow, Realtor.com, Redfin etc.

3. Sales Strategy:

Before your home hits the market, your real estate agent will develop a sales strategy. This will include things like deciding how many showings to do per week and when to hold open houses, when to list a house on MLS etc.

4. Communications:

One of the most important parts of selling a house is keeping lines of communication open between you and potential buyers. Your Realtor® will handle all communications with buyers, so you don’t have to worry about phone calls or emails at all hours of the day. Your Realtor® will also keep you updated on any offers that come in, so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to accept them.

5. Marketing:

In addition to creating listings, your real estate agent will also be responsible for marketing your home. This could include anything from online presentations, sending out postcards to hosting open houses.  Check out my Comprehensive Marketing Plan (post COVID-19)

6. Showings and Open Houses:

Once your home is on the market, you can expect regular showings and open houses. Your real estate agent will be present for all of these so that they can answer any questions potential buyers may have. Check out my article How to Have a Successful Showing or Open House

7. Negotiations:

If an offer comes in on your home, it will be up to your real estate agent to negotiate with the buyers until both parties are happy with the terms of the sale.

8. Moving The Transaction Forward:

Once an offer has been accepted, there are still a few more steps that need to be completed before the sale is finalized. Your real estate agent will take care of tasks like ordering inspections and getting insurance in place.

9. Coordinating The Closing:

The final step is coordinating the closing with all parties involved. Your real estate agent will make sure everything goes smoothly so that you can move on to the next chapter of your life stress-free!

Selling a house is a big job, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming!

Hiring a professional real estate agent is one of the best things you can do when putting your house on the market. An experienced agent will guide you through every step of the process – from setting a competitive price tag to coordinating the closing – so you can rest assured knowing that everything is being taken care of professionally.

READ: Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services

AS AGENT FOR OWNER (SELLER/LANDLORD): The broker becomes the property owner’s agent through an agreement with the
owner, usually in a written listing to sell or property management agreement. An owner’s agent must perform the broker’s minimum
duties above and must inform the owner of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including
information disclosed to the agent or subagent by the buyer or buyer’s agent.

A BROKER’S MINIMUM DUTIES REQUIRED BY LAW (A client is the person or party that the broker represents):
Put the interests of the client above all others, including the broker’s own interests;
Inform the client of any material information about the property or transaction received by the broker;
Answer the client’s questions and present any offer to or counteroffer from the client; and
Treat all parties to a real estate transaction honestly and fairly.

TO AVOID DISPUTES, ALL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN YOU AND A BROKER SHOULD BE IN WRITING AND CLEARLY ESTABLISH:
– The broker’s duties and responsibilities to you, and your obligations under the representation agreement.
– Who will pay the broker for services provided to you, when payment will be made and how the payment will be calculated.

TYPES OF REAL ESTATE LICENSE HOLDERS:
