Seller’s Agent Polk County FL | Best Realtor
Even in This Seller’s Market, it is Important to Have Help From a Real Estate Professional
If you live in Polk County, Florida, then you have probably noticed that our real estate market is HOT! What that means is that we are seeing home prices increase, more people moving to the area, and houses selling left and right. This is what the industry calls a “Seller’s Market”. However, it is important to know that while the market favors people selling their homes right now, it is still important to use a professional real estate agent to guide you through the process. Here are 3 of the top reasons to use DRJ Real Estate to sell your home.
#1: Understand the Market
DRJ Real Estate has been part of the Polk County community for over 20 years. That is 20 years, not just professionally, but personally too, residing in this beautiful area. Being truly plugged into the community provides the DRJ team with the inside knowledge and expertise to truly understand this market. We have seen Polk County grow and change over the years, we have seen real estate trends come and go. Through it all, we have learned how best to serve our community with their real estate needs.
Part of understanding the market is understanding the nuances. For example, while a “Seller’s Market” might be favorable for Seller’s, this does not mean that it is not competitive. DRJ understands the fine details and techniques that will help Sellers maximize their return and expedite their sale.
One of the most important things that a Seller’s Agent can do for their client is to list the home properly. This requires a complete understanding of several factors. These may include:
- current market price based on comparables
- upgrades to listing
- anticipated offers
- valuation techniques and requirements by Appraisers
Setting your listing price correctly will not only help you get the most for your home, but may also help you close in a timely manner. The best way to get the right listing price for your Polk County, Florida, home is to work with DRJ Real Estate.
#2: Understand Contracts
Real estate transactions can be complicated and confusing. If you are not well versed in understanding contract law, and real estate law, then it is best to work with a licensed professional. This will help protect you from any potential liability or harm that can come from selling your house.
For example, there are certain required disclosures that must be made about the property. Additionally, Seller’s have certain requirements around inspections and appraisals. Failure to provide these items can be a huge liability. To make things even more confusing, some of these required disclosures and inspections can be “waived” by the buyer, if the correct forms are provided.
Additionally, when it comes to real estate contracts, there are many negotiables. This means that just about anything can be included in the transaction, as long as both parties agree. This may look something like a buyer requesting that furniture be included in the purchase, or the seller “renting back” the property for a period of time before the buyer moves in. These negotiables can get confusing. Having an experienced, professional real estate agent in your corner will help make sure that your transaction is properly worded to protect you and represent you.
Finally, when it comes to real estate contracts, your agent can help make your home look even more attractive to potential buyers by providing certain things, or agreeing to certain requests. An experienced real estate agent knows how to leverage negotiable items to create a “win-win” scenario for both parties, and is careful in including them in the real estate contract to make sure that everything is legitimate and legal.
#3: Access to a Real Estate Network
Finally, one of the best reasons to work with a professional listing agent from DRJ Real Estate is simply because of professional access. As a licensed Realtor, we have access the MLS system that is universally used by Realtors to search for properties. Additionally, we have long standing working relationships with many other agencies and Brokers in the area. This means that we may know of qualified buyers that are in the market, or know of reputable agents who deal fairly and professionally.
If you want eyes on your listing, then you want to be on the MLS. Of course, in today’s digital market, buyers can preview many houses through independent websites such as Zillow. However, for access to the most possible people you need to work with an agent.
Additionally, DRJ Real Estate has professional relationships with many other real estate related services. This means that we can help our seller’s schedule their inspections and appraisal. We can help potential buyers find a good lender, or even use our relationship with lenders to review a buyer’s pre-qualification letter for validity.
