Why You Should Hire a Realtor

ORLANDO, FL – October 26, 2017 – By hiring a Realtor, you get more money in your pocket. Do you know the stats? If you are thinking of buying or selling your home in Orlando, you should do the numbers first.

Hiring a Realtor to help represent you in the sale of your home is actually profitable so it is worth the money, time and effort. Typically, For-Sale-By-Owner homes sold for $185,000 compared to $240,000 for agent-assisted home sales. When you do the math, that brings you more money than you could be saving on agent commission. Plus, you save your time.

88% of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent. At Stockworth, we have many exclusive relationships and corporate relocation companies we work with to bring buyer leads directly to your home.

In addition, real estate companies connect your home to many outlets for maximum exposure including: MLS, memberships, relationships (mortgage brokers, vendors, real estate attorneys, home inspectors and stagers) just to name a few.

With a Realtor, agreements are handled responsibly and allow time for inspections, contingencies, etc. Negotiations can get heated and cutthroat tactics are needed. Real estate agents are experts at this and do this daily for a living.

  1. Nationally, Realtors bring you between 10% to 30% more money
  2. Just 5% on a $400,000 house = $20,000
  3. 95% of all homes are with Realtors – It’s the market!
  4. You assume all liability on your own without a real estate agent 
  5. Too important of a transaction to have a part-time, inexperienced person handling this for you
