You may be about to sell or purchase one of your biggest lifetime investments. If selling your property in the Poconos, your investment may represent a certain amount of equity. If purchasing land for sale or a home for sale in the Poconos, you will be spending hard-earned savings. Selling or buying a home is a major life-challenging experience and, consequently, can be an emotional experience. Without question, having a licensed professional by your side to guide the process, easing through problems that may arise, can eliminate much of the stress. Only real estate agents who are members of the National Association of Realtors are Realtors. As a full-service Realtor in the Poconos with Century 21 Geba Realty Associates, located at 309 West Harford Street in Milford, PA, I would like to assist you with selling your property, or with buying land or residential real estate in Milford, PA, and its surrounding areas in Pike, Wayne and Monroe Counties, PA.
Working with a Realtor can save you money!
If you are selling real estate in the Poconos, a decision needs to be made regarding whether to attempt selling the property on your own, or to enter into an agreement with a realtor for assistance in the sale of your property, and pay a commission – a commission is, after all, paid by the seller.
For you to consider:
Studies have shown that buyers who look for “FSBOs” (“for sale by owner” properties) generally offer 6-10% below the price of comparable properties because they know a commission is not being paid.
Another study has shown that the median sales price of agent-assisted home sales was 27% higher than ones sold By Owner.
Will you actually be saving money by not working with a real estate professional? When considering such studies, we might say, “Working with a real estate professional is like flying first class for the same price as flying coach.” We are more likely to say, “Working with a real estate professional cost me less to fly first class than to fly coach!”
If you are buying real estate in the Poconos, and not paying the commission, the question about whether or not to work with a realtor becomes, “Should I fly first class, or fly coach, for free?”
In any real estate transaction, important decisions need to be made concerning contract terms, escrow matters, transfer of title, apportionment of costs and many other matters. A lawsuit can arise from a simple relevant missing word, or mistake in grammar, thereby creating a dispute. Experienced, professional State licensed realtors devote many hours in training and educational programs that emphasize risk reduction, and protecting their clients’ interests.
