For Sale By Owner or a REALTOR

Albuquerque Buyers Agent

Albuquerque REALTOR or Sell your home yourself?

Albuquerque FSBO CartoonSo many people today say “Can’t I just go online and sell my house?” Well, sure, some do. It’s not a process I would recommend for the faint of heart.

In the early 1970′s residential contracts in Albuquerque rarely exceeded a page or two. Today it is not unusual to have a residential contract package that is an inch thick or more.

A good New Mexico Real Estate Broker can really help you navigate what has become a very complicated process. Disclosures (both Federal and State), inspection reports and myriad multipage contracts are needed before a home can be sold.

Most people don’t move very often, so it can be a very stressful event in one’s life anyway. Your Albuquerque Metro Realtor® can be an objective voice. Having a professional who cares about you and your goals can often help you stay focused on the emotional and financial issues at hand. They can really relieve a burden from your shoulders.

The knowledge and judgment of a qualified, active New Mexico Broker is invaluable. A professional who knows your Albuquerque metro neighborhood will be able to assess your home’s true value and offer an accurate marketing approach to get your home sold quickly and at the top price.

Anyone can go on the internet today and see what your neighbor’s home is selling for. It takes a skilled New Mexico Real Estate Professional with the tools and information available to them to find out what homes like yours have actually sold for.

It’s not rocket science, but a New Mexico Real Estate Broker who is a member of the MLS will have more information available to them than anyone.
