First ask yourself, “How many people do I know right now who are ready, willing, and able to buy my home?”

Then ask, “What can a real estate agent do that I can’t do for myself?”

This means that long before you list your home for sale, your agent has developed an extensive database of potential buyers for your home.

From phone calls, Internet websites, and other showings, your agent has already met and qualified many prospective buyers. They are just waiting for the right home to become available and it could be yours.

From experience, your agent knows how to continue attracting new prospects for your home. Because you are a one time seller, it is extremely difficult to compete on a level playing field with dedicated real estate professionals.
