why you should use a realtor


by katia cao, agent, coldwell banker riveras



Selling your home is a significant decision and you should hire a professional, knowledgeable real estate agent to handle it.

Most of the time we don’t think about the amount of time and effort a Real Estate agent invests in preparing, marketing, and successfully selling property. It seems easy, but it isn’t!

A Professional Real estate agent will help you to set a realistic competitive price for your property, we know the market, and understand how important is to set the right price from the beginning. We will be able to provide you with a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) showing recent sales of comparable homes and competing listings in your neighborhood. We will prepare a listing contract and help you with the required paperwork to start marketing your property.

Your  agent  will  also  provide  you  with  a  comprehensive  marketing  plan,  Including recommendations for  home  improvements  and  home  staging,  writing  property  descriptions, taking and editing photographs, creating advertising materials, placing ads, handling digital marketing,  sending out information to potentially interested buyers, networking,  holding open houses, coordinating effective home showings, answering questions, following up on prospective buyers and keep you informed of how things are progressing and what’s being done to market your home.

A professional Real Estate agent uses tools like the multiple listing service (MLS),  a database used by  real  estate  brokers  consolidating  and  sharing  information  about  their  listed  properties, providing exposure to thousands of potential buyers and their agents.

Your agent understands the step‐by‐step process of selling property and will guide you through the  complexities  of  home  selling  in  Mexico,  making  sure  all  necessary  documentation  is completed. He/she will negotiate and resolve any buyer concerns, coordinate with the buyer's agent, the Escrow Company, home inspectors, appraisers, notaries, closing coordinator and will also make sure you're doing your part to close the deal.

Sound like a lot? Indeed, it is a full‐time job!  If you’re thinking of selling property, contact a Real estate professional in your marketplace and see what they have to offer!

And if you want to know what your home is worth in today’s market, contact me for a no‐
obligation consultation!
