1. Market Expertise. Do you know what’s really going on in the market?
There is so much information out there on the news and the internet about home sales, prices, mortgage rates; how do you know what’s going on specifically in your area? Who do you turn to in order to competitively price your home correctly at the beginning of the selling process? How do you know what to offer on your dream home without paying too much, or offending the seller with a low-ball offer?
2. Negotiation Skills. Are you a good negotiator?
So maybe you’re not convinced that you need an agent to sell your home. However, after looking at the list of parties that you need to be prepared to negotiate with, you’ll realize the value in selecting a Real Estate Professional. From the buyer (who wants the best deal possible), to the home inspection companies, to the appraiser, there can be up to 11 different people that you will have to be knowledgeable with and answer to, during the process. Real estate agents are trained and experienced in negotiation. In most cases, the seller is not. The seller must realize their ability to negotiate will determine whether they can get the best deal for themselves and their family.
3. Law and Contract Knowledge. What do you do with all this paperwork?
Georgia’s real estate rules, codes, and regulations regarding the contracts required for a successful sale are constantly changing. A true Real Estate Specialist is an expert in their market and can guide you through the stacks of paperwork necessary to make your dream a reality.

5. Comparative Analysis. What is the home you’re buying/selling really worth?
It is important for your home to be priced correctly from the start to attract the right buyers and shorten the time that it’s on the market.
