That may sound good, but then nobody is pushing your property. If nobody pushes it, nobody shows it. If nobody shows it, then it probably won’t sell.

Also, if you were an agent, would you rather show homes that were listed with professional agents that worked to get deals closed? Agents work with buyers because it is easy. You show the house, the agent writes an offer, and the agent on the listing side handles the next three months of legal paperwork trying to get the deal closed.

If you list it for sale yourself, who will follow up with the three months worth of legal paperwork? If that person is you, what agent will want to risk the fact that you have never done it before?

As a buyer's agent, would you rather show a home and keep your fingers crossed, hoping that you don’t get sued by the buyers because some legal aspect was overlooked by the homeowners and the transaction didn’t get done?

This is part of an on-going question and answer series of the most frequently asked questions we get in real estate. From seller objections to buyer concerns, the zac team will help explain our rationale behind our philosophy in selling real estate here in Atlanta!

#1: “If I list my home with you and buy my next home from you, will you cut your commission?”
#2: “What should I do about keeping my promise to the agent from which I originally bought the home?”
#3: "I have seen this marketing plan from many different agents, what makes yours different?"
#4: “Why is your price so much lower than the other agents that we have talked to? I mean, they have comparisons that show higher prices than yours.”
#5: "Should I wait to sell my Atlanta home until home values go up?"

#6: “How much advertising will you do? Because I want a lot of advertising!”

#7: “Why should I hire such a busy agent? You have so many listings, we want someone that can give us the attention we deserve.”
#8: “Should I find a house before I put mine on the market?”
#9: “What do I do if I need to net a certain amount in order to move?"

#10: “If I have to sell at that price, then why shouldn't I just sell it myself?”
