The Orlando housing market is hot and competition is fierce. If you are considering selling your home, knowing how much it is truly worth before listing is can help put more money in your pocket at the closing table. For this reason, it is critical that you hire a licensed REALTOR® that is familiar with the Orlando market and your community.
Reason #1 – REALTORS® Know the Market
Many home owners feel that if they skip the real estate agent completely and go the route of a “for sale by owner” (aka FSBO) and save the cost of a commission. What many home owners don’t realize is the sheer amount of work involved with listing a home for sale so that it sells fast and for the best possible price. One of the most critical elements of a successful home sale is the home valuation and pricing it properly. Price it to high and the home will set on the market and won’t get shown. Price it too low and you could leave a lot of money on the table.
A qualified REALTOR® knows the trends in the market, where to find the latest data, and how to properly price the home to ensure that you get the best possible price. After all, the agent is commissioned on the purchase price of the home so they want to make sure that they get the best sale price possible. Having an accurate home valuation is critical to the home selling process.
Reason #2 – REALTORS® Know How to Make a Home Sizzle
It is common sense that if you are selling your home you want to make sure that your home is clean and clutter free. However, there is more to getting a home to sell than just that. You see your home every day and having an objective, third party point of view from your REALTOR® can help you to get your home setup for a great sale.
Reason #3 – REALTORS® Know How to Find the RIGHT Buyers for Your Home
Selling a home isn’t just a “list it and forget it” process. Not all REALTORS® are created equal and a qualified REALTOR® will ensure that your home is getting in front of the right buyers at the right time to generate interest. A qualified REALTOR® has a diverse strategy to market your home locally and globally through various methods.

As we said, not all real estate agents are created equal. But, the truth is that by not hiring a professional with the expertise and wisdom that comes with being a REALTOR, you are just asking for trouble. In fact, cutting out a REALTOR® from helping you sell your home may waste both your time and money. When you are ready to sell, we encourage you to ask your friends and family that you trust for recommendations. Consult professional organizations like the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association.
