I'm still looking forward to possibly buying my first home by myself sometime soon, but I've been thinking a lot lately about what I would do if I were to sell a home in these times that we're currently living in.

If you're a home-owner, then chances are that question has crossed your mind at some point too, right? That being said, I thought I'd reach out to my friends over at One Realty Partners to see what their thoughts were about selling a home right now.

It turns out, if you're looking to put your property on the market, there's no better way to do so right now than with a real estate agent on your side, especially one from One Realty Partners. Let me explain why:

Online strategy

Almost everything is digital these days and that includes buying a home. Real estate agents know exactly where to list your home online to reach as many people as possible and find you a buyer.

Mortgages

A real estate agent will be actively involved in overseeing a purchaser's mortgage commitment, which is something you won't be able to have a hand in as a for sale by owner (FSBO). We'll talk more about FSBOs in a little bit.

Negotiations

Do you really want to deal with the buyer, the buyer's agent, the inspection companies, and the appraiser (if there is one) all by yourself? I didn't think so. A real estate agent is trained and properly equipped to handle negotiating with each of these parties.

More money

You may think you may save money by not hiring a real estate agent, but the truth is that having an agent will net you more money in the long run. They're there to get you the most amount of money possible for your home.

Legalities

As you probably could've guessed, there's a lot of legal documentation and regulations that must be followed when FSBOing. Having a real estate agent on your time will allow the peace of mind of not having to worry about any of those things.

Safety

Last but certainly not least, a real estate agent will implement all the proper protocols to follow COVID-19 guidelines and to keep your personal property and belongings safe during an open house showing.

Are you thinking about selling or even buying a home? Either way, you're going to want a real estate agent on your side and there's no better place to find one than at One Realty Partners.
