Do I Really Need a Realtor? They’re Expensive!
This is a great question. Often, people ask, “Won’t I save money if I sell my home on my own?”
The short answer is, if you feel confident enough, go for it! For many people though, reaI estate transactions can be confusing to navigate. They can be time-consuming, the paperwork can be overwhelming and unforeseen circumstances can throw a monkey-wrench into the process. Legal issues, personal conflict and emotions can also add fuel to the fire.
A Realtor Can Help You Navigate the Process
