Agents Make Home Sales Headache-Free!

August 24, 2011


The sale of a home is often one of the most momentous events in one’s lifetime. After all, the home is the cornerstone of our lives! According to the US Census Bureau, over 320,000 homes were sold in 2010 in the United States and over 69,000 of these homes were sold in Chicagoland area alone! That’s a lot of home sales – and if you think about it, probably a lot of stressed out people! Whether you’re on the buying or selling side, home sales can be daunting and even overwhelming. Is it possible to avoid the stress and headaches altogether? Maybe not, but there is one way to ease the pain and that is by working through a real estate agency.

Some experienced veterans may argue that it’s possible to buy or sell on one’s own to save a little money. But do you really want to cut corners with something as significant as the sale of a home? Sure saving in other areas is great – buy discounted furniture, go to yard sales to find unique decorations, or paint the house yourself. But it’s too risky to be stingy during the buying and selling process! You’ll find that the professional and personalized guidance of a real estate agency such as Century 21 Affiliated Chicago is truly priceless!

Think about it – do you know how many forms you have to fill out or which papers must be filed? Buying and selling homes is a complicated process that you don’t want to risk screwing up. Remember, it’s one of the most significant things you’ll ever purchase or sell so let a real estate agent do the work for you!

Why should you choose to go through an agency?

·      Local knowledge – an agent is well acquainted with the areas they serve, and as a result they can keep you informed on neighborhoods and local schools to help ensure you’re making the best choice for you and your family.

·      Technology and resources – agencies often have the most cutting edge and up-to-date technology at their fingertips. If you’re selling, they know how to make your home more visible; if you’re buying, they can help you sort through the confusion and get right to the homes they know you’ll love. This connectivity can prove invaluable!

·      Full-time commitment – buying and selling homes is an agent’s job and top priority. They will commit themselves fully to this cause and do most of the leg work for you. This means you have more time to focus on your job, your family, or whatever it is you enjoy most!

·      Experience– agencies know what they’re doing! Take the Century 21 Affiliated brand, for example. In 2010, they completed in excess of $6 billion in transaction volume and completed 4,500 transactions thanks to their 450 agents. Their experience certainly paid off!

So when it comes time to buy or sell your home, whether it’s your first time or you’ve been around the block a few times, trust a local and professional real estate agency. In the end, you’ll avoid irritating and excessive headaches and be happy that you did!
