How much Value does a Real Estate Agent Add when Selling My Home?

Value of a Real Estate Agent

ALOT!

Value of a Real Estate Agent   

Alot of things go on behind the scenes in making a Real Estate transaction go smoothly.  Some of the “Added-Value” Skills that a Good Agent possesses are: Support, Empathy, Kindness, Leadership, Loyalty, Creativity and Coaching, to name a few.  Quality of Service is also “Added Value”! Pricing, Negotiating, Marketing, Advertising, Communication Skills, all “Add Value”!  An Agent can spend countless (and unbillable) hours on tasks behind the scenes.  That’s “Added Value”.  It takes alot of “Added Value” to get a Property Sold.

“Added Value” is demonstrated when a Listing Agent Negotiates the Best and Highest Price for the Seller, often getting them Thousand of Dollars more than expected.  That Real Estate Agent’s commission is a small amount of money to pay, and by the way, the Listing Agent does not get the entire commission, as it’s divided between Listing & Selling Brokerages, then each Agent gets their split between themselves and their Brokerages. “Added Value” is about all the Time, Energy and Effort the Agent spends on a Listed Property.  “Added Value” is when the Agent spends their Money on your Property.  And sometimes, that property does not sell, or the Sellers decide not to sell anymore.  These are out-of-pocket expenses that the Agent has incurred and will not ever recoup.  A Great Agent “Adds Value” to your Real Estate Transaction in so many ways, there’s just no doubt about it!
