What If You Don’t Hire a Real Estate Agent When Selling?

handshake between real estate agent and client as a home stands in the background If you are selling your home, you should hire a real estate agent. This is true even though some home sellers may not be sure if they want to get professional help. For those who are considering going without an agent, it is important to understand what happens if you don’t have a realtor. If you decide to hire a real estate professional, the Brian Burds Home Selling Team is here for you.

What to Expect if You Don’t Have a Real Estate Agent

If you are trying to sell your house without a real estate agent, you will need to face many issues. The first issue being how you will get your house onto the Multiple Listing Service, or MLS for short. If you don’t list your house on the MLS, it won’t be seen by the majority of home shoppers. This is because the MLS is the biggest database of homes for sale. You cannot list on the MLS unless you are a licensed realtor. So you’ll have to pay a service to get your home into this database.

What Comes Next

Getting into the MLS is just one of the many things you will have to try to do on your own if you don’t have a real estate agent. You will need to price your house and stage it for sale. This must be done in order for your home to be attractive to potential buyers. You may have to set up open houses to bring people in so they can see the house. In addition, you’ll have to deal with possible buyers setting up showings and coming to see the house. If people who are interested in your home have realtors, you may also need to pay commission to the buyer’s realtor in order for the realtor to bring the buyer through. These are just a few of the many aspects that go into home selling. Real estate agents are well aware of all that’s necessary.
