In today's real estate market it is more important than ever to have a professional who truly represents your best interest. A qualified listing agent works for you -- the home seller.
Here are some things to consider when hiring an agent:
The offer is typically written by an agent who represents the buyer's best interests.
Your listing agent will represent you, the home seller, as your exclusive sellers agent.
Your listing agent will carefully go through the entire offer with you and furnish you with expert guidance and counseling. Your listing agent will help you put together a response that will give you the highest possible price for your home and do everything possible to protect you from liability.
Remember, you are depending on your listing agent to represent your best interests at all times and to be a strong negotiator on your behalf. Good guidance here can also make the entire transaction go more smoothly and greatly decrease the chances of litigation.
