Selling Your Home Through a Realtor
Working with a realtor doesn’t provide any real assurance that your home is going to sell quickly or even sell at all. The only real guarantee is that if and when it sells, they will get to collect their commission that comes out of the total sale price.
The problem with hiring a realtor to sell your home quickly is that they have a lot of homes that they’re trying to sell at the same time. As much as they would like to see your home sell, they are naturally going to give more attention to the homes that bring in the biggest commission and that they know they can sell the fastest.
If your home needs a lot of work, is in a bad location, or has any other challenges that prevent it from bringing in a quick, easy sell, there’s a good chance your realtor won’t give you the attention you deserve. It’s not because realtors are bad people, it’s simply the way their business model works best for them.
