It’s fall and the Orange County real estate market is still hot and many homeowners who are considering selling their home to upgrade or downsize to a home better suited for their situation often think that they can sell their home themselves instead of hiring an Orange County Realtor. The thinking often revolves around the value a realtor offers. After all, doesn’t a Realtor just list my home online, wait for someone to call, collect 3% of the sales price and call it a day?
Selling a home in Orange County is more involved than just sticking a “For Sale” sign in the front
yard of a home and waiting for buyers to come. Orange County real estate agents have exclusive access to the MLS. This means they can find out what homes in the neighborhood have recently sold for and then come up with the right price to sell a home that will be attractive to buyers and potential real estate investors.
Besides market experience, the top Orange County real estate agents on our team have an unbiased perspective that enables us to find flaws in the home that may keep it from selling. This skill is something that we help instill in agents because it can come back to bite both the agent and homeowner after the sale if not properly disclosed when the property is sold.
Connections Within The Community
Sometimes during the process of selling an Orange County home things happen and it may be necessary to call a roofer, landscaper or contractor. One of the benefits of hiring a top Orange County real estate agent is that they have built trusted connections within the community that a homeowner might not have. By using one of the agent’s contacts, you ensure that the job is done properly since they risk losing future business if sub-par work is done. If the handyman has no future business to lose from you, there is not as much risk of doing a sub-par job.
