When a homeowner wants to sell their home, they want the best possible price for it with the least amount of complications along the way. Of course, the large majority of seller’s most important result is actually getting their house sold. This is where using a real estate professional is important.
In order to reach all goals, the seller needs to realize the importance of using a real estate professional. Technology has definetely changed the purchaser’s behavior during the home buying process. According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2016 Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers, the first step that “…44% of recent buyers took in the home buying process was to look online at properties for sale.” this report also showed that 96% of buyers who used the internet when searching for homes purchased their homes through either a real estate agent/broker or from a builder or builder’s agent. Only 2% bought their homes directly from a seller whom the buyer didn’t know.
Today buyers search for homes online but then start using a real estate professional to find the home they will buy (50%), to negotiate the sale (47%) and price (36%), or to help comprehend the process (61%).
The amount of information now available has caused an increase in the percentage of buyers who started using a real estate professional to “connect the dots.” This is obvious, as the percentage of overall buyers who have used agents to buy their homes has increased from 69% in 2001.
If you are thinking of selling your home, don’t underestimate the role a real estate professional can play in the process.
