5 Reasons You Need a Real Estate Professional Handling Your Sales

Due to one reason or the other, you feel like you need to sell your current property. To create room and generate money for which to acquire a newer and better property.

Creating a feeling of restlessness, since it has been months since you first placed an ad to attract potential buyers. No one has called. No one has visited.

The lucky who manage to get calls, get laughable offers.  Making you second guess, your decision to sell. After being in the real estate industry for this long, we have some news for you. You are going about it the wrong way.

Yes, many property owners have sold their properties on their own. But along the way you will note, they must have had the help of a friend or some other person in the real estate industry. We would all like to cut costs, do away with the middle man but in real estate, you will find that you actually need a real estate agent handling your sales.

I bet you aren’t convinced yet. This is why you should:

Good Pricing

Only a real estate agent can confidently and accurately value your property. In the hands of a broker, you could be duped to under sell your property. However, in the hands of a professional real estate agency, they know their reputation is at stake.

Thus the need to value your property, rightly and fetch you the best price the market has to offer. Nothing short of your expectation. But, if they feel that they might not meet the said price, they will come with proof as to why they won’t be living to that expectation. Again, knowing that their reputation is at stake.

Negotiating Power      

In real estate, people are looking to save some percentage. Imagine 0.1 percent of a billion shilling property saved? We are talking about a cool million in the bank.

This is serious money in today’s economy. This is, of course, depending on who is beaten on the negotiation tables. In most cases, it happens to be the home owner. For the buyer will come in knowing that you decide to sell is driven by some underlying frustration.

A real estate agent, however, is driven by profit. Making him unsusceptible to manipulation. Giving him an upper hand at the negotiating tables, in comparison to you. This places him strategically to get you a better deal.

Time Constraints

Most property owners fall in the wealthy category, who we understand are busy people. Always on their feet, looking for more ways to add to their existing wealth. Which is quite time consuming.

What better way to create time for this other endeavours than to hire a professional agency to handle your sales? For before a property is sold, there is usually a lot of meetings, visits to the property and so on. It involves quite a lot of tedious activities before a property is marked as sold. Save yourself the hustle!

Smooth Sale Process

Before a sale is a done deal, a mountain of paper work is involved. Which can drive you crazy as a property owner.

A professional real estate agent has the experience to work through the sale process efficiently, stepping in when there are financing problems, dealing directly with buyers’ objections and complaints, keeping everything on track, and facilitating the contracts and escrow to a successful, smooth close.


You want your home to get the maximum exposure to the greatest number of potential buyers. Your agent will prepare all the marketing materials, coordinate the Internet marketing, host open houses, and network regularly with other agents who may have interested buyers.
