Saving You Time & Money
If you’re a seller - how much is your time worth? If you don't use real estate professionals like Melissa or Lisa, expect to spend at least 100 hours selling your home--assuming there are no problems! Most people don't sell more than two homes in their lifetime, so it's not something they develop expertise in. There are constantly changing laws, ethical practices and practical considerations that you don't want to learn on your own through trial and error or relying on a book or information off the internet. It's just not worth the risk or liability. The National Association of Realtors reports that 89% of sellers were assisted by a real estate agent when selling their home. Your home is the biggest asset you will ever sell. It's important you do it right!
