Six reasons why it’s worth working with a real estate professional
In this month’s local property market update, Raine and Horne Murraylands’ Casey DeMichele and Michael Cox explain the benefits of selling through an agency instead of doing it yourself.
This sponsored post is brought to you by Raine and Horne Murraylands.
The Murraylands’ property market is a bit of a moving feast at the moment.
At times like these, if you plan on selling a property, it pays to work with a professional.
With that in mind, here are five reasons you might think about engaging a real estate agent – such as the experienced professionals at Raine and Horne Murraylands.
Their knowledge is up-to-date
Property prices in the Murraylands – and right across country South Australia – are rising quickly at the moment, even month to month.
If your market knowledge isn’t right up to date, you could wind up selling yourself short.
The team at Raine and Horne know just what the market is looking for at the moment, and can help you set your expectations accordingly.
“Someone who decides to go privately could be costing themselves a lot of money,” sales consultant Casey DeMichele says.
They can advise you on preparing for a sale
What are the details a buyer will focus on when they come to inspect your property?
What minor improvements might you need to make to maximise your return?
Senior property consultant Michael Cox and his colleagues know, so they can help you prepare.
“In this market, we’ll usually get good offers that will recoup the commission you’ll pay several times over,” he suggested.
Selling a house is complicated
Selling a house isn’t like selling a car, or a couch, or your old DVD collection.
For one thing, there are legal pitfalls to avoid, Michael says.
“There are a lot of legalities (around selling a house) that other items don’t have,” he says.
“There’s also a lot of behind-the-scenes negotiations as far as terms and conditions, the importance of having good deposits, establishing a time frame for a client in terms of what’s going to be best in their lives, what they’re buying, where they’re moving to and so on.”
When it comes to advertising your property, anyone can put up a Facebook post, but only a professional can draw on years of marketing and sales expertise to achieve the best possible outcome.
The team at Raine and Horne can have some lovely professional photos taken of your property, too.
They’ll reduce your stress levels
Do you look forward to organising open inspections, trying to find times that will suit a dozen or more people – and that won’t clash with your work, family or other commitments?
Get a professional to do the work for you.
Someone like Michael knows the questions to ask that will help you identify the most promising potential buyers, too.
“Everyone who comes to a barbecue at your house will say ‘what a lovely home’ … but whether they’re in a position to make a genuine offer, and soon, is another matter,” he says.
They’re the best in the business
Raine and Horne Murraylands has been named the best agency out of more than 300 around the nation when it comes to marketing.
Both Michael Cox and John DeMichele were named among the top five Raine and Horne real estate agents in South Australia for the last quarter of 2022.
The agency handled more listings than any other Raine and Horne franchise in country SA.
