5+1 reasons to sell your house through real estate agencies

The spread of online real estate ads has created a false myth: the figure of the real estate agent is no longer essential because even individuals can enter proposals and negotiations taking place quietly between individuals and without intermediaries. In this article we talk about the reasons why it is not so convenient to sell your house privately.

Well, let’s start with the first of the 6 reasons why selling a property through an agency is a good choice in most cases:

    • Selling houses is a job

Many people underestimate the commitment that lies behind the sale of a house. Market research, taking photos of the rooms, writing and publishing ads in thematic newspapers and on the agency’s website, sorting calls, making appointments and showing the property, managing negotiations… in short, it’s a job with a lot of underlying knowledge and expertise needed to professionally manage a real estate sale.

    • Price evaluation

Many homes are unsold due to an incorrect valuation. Since the offers are public, the buyers know the market prices before meeting the real estate agent and immediately discard the unfavorable properties.

Only a professional real estate agent can give the right estimate to the property: he knows the local market and can count on the collaboration of other professionals who know how to attribute the exact value. The broad network of technicians, such as surveyors, helps to set a reasonable price that usually boots a faster sale of the property.

    • Collaboration between agencies

Very often real estate agencies collaborate with each other; this means that they have a much broader view of the real estate market, which goes far beyond the advertisements published in online newspapers.

    • Negotiation

Negotiations for the sale of a property are not simple. If you are a private individual you risk selling it off or not closing the deal because you concluded a wrong price estimate. A real estate agent makes a professional evaluation, that is influenced by a number of factors, and knows how to make the most sensible choices.

At the end of the negotiation, all the bureaucratic parts relating to the sale of the property take over, requiring the exclusive presence of a serious and competent professional figure.

    • Knowledge of the real estate market

The real estate market has its own dynamics; the sale of the property depends on the specific context in which it is inserted and the point of competitiveness.

An experienced real estate agent knows the sales price based on the context and the neighborhood in which the property is located and this price is almost always different from the one published on thematic portals by individuals.

The real estate agent knows the area because he visits it every day and is able to have a global vision; He’s able to make the best choices and increase the chances that the property will be sold in the shortest possible time.

    • Real Estate Marketing

Real estate agencies propose a real estate marketing plan to their clients, which includes the creation of a photo-video service, the writing of a persuasive ad, the publication on thematic portals and the agency’s website, the creation of advertising campaigns, if any, home staging service and much more.

Through the profound experience of a real estate professional and the access to important evaluation/advertising servies, they can guarantee you to boost a faster sale of your property.
