If you’re a homeowner in Denver, you’ve probably heard how hot the market is this year. But you may be wondering if hiring a real estate agent is really necessary. After all, doesn’t everyone keep saying it’s a seller’s market right now? Do I really need to pay someone to sell my home? Want the real answer? DEFINITELY, and what’s more, it should be us.
If you need concrete evidence of why hiring Dutzer & Co. as your seller’s agents is a good move (hint: we’ll make you more money and save you headaches), here’s our list of the top three reasons to sell your house with us:
1. Hiring Dutzer & Co. = More Money
For sellers, hiring the right real estate agent is crucial because a good agent can help you sell your home for more profit. According to the National Association of Realtors’ Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the median selling price for homes sold by agents was $60,000-90,000 higher than those sold exclusively by homeowners (for sale by owner, or FSBO). That’s no small sum when it comes to money in your pocket after the sale of your home.
2. Paperwork + Negotiations
Does anyone really like paperwork? Unfortunately, selling your home involves a lot of it.
From initial home inspections to final contracts and titles, there’s a lot of documentation that goes into the sale of a home, and you’ll want someone who knows what they’re looking at to help you manage it all.
We’re used to juggling Denver’s real-time, ever-changing market conditions. Add to this inspection dates, feedback and requests from buyers, seller’s disclosures, and closing dates, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. It’s difficult to manage this many moving pieces on your own. Luckily, when you work with us, you won’t have to.
We will review and explain every document to ensure that the pile of contracts you’re signing is working in your favor. We’ll also bring our expert negotiating skills to the bargaining table to ensure you’re getting the most out of your deal.
3. Local Connections
One of the best parts of working with a real estate agent, (especially us), is the access it gives you to all of their connections. From staging companies to top-notch real estate photographers and videographers to a great last-minute handyman to tackle those pre-listing odd jobs, we’ve got you covered. We’ll be able to use our resources and extensive local network to connect you as a priority customer to the service providers you need to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar.
Can’t I just google local businesses and contact the ones I need myself? Sure. You could absolutely do that. But as members of our local real estate community, we have a network of connections in place. This includes contractors, inspectors, and fellow agents, all of which will benefit you as a seller. Our network provides clients with additional insight that they wouldn’t get otherwise. Our established relationships with local vendors can help sellers avoid added costs while getting necessary work done efficiently.
It is completely possible to sell your home on your own in Denver’s white-hot seller’s market. However, you’ll miss out on the invaluable advantages that hiring a high-quality seller’s agent can bring. We can deliver on our promise of a seamless home sale.
