Statistics from the National Association of Realtors prove that homes listed with a licensed full-time agent sell for approximately 26% more than those sold ‘For Sale by Owner’ even after the commission. Why?
Mainly because active agents know the market and what a home will bring–and though homeowners know what they want to receive when their home sells, those numbers are rarely the same.
A case in point would be Zillow Zestimates, which are not accurate representation of home values (in fact, they are statistically off by 10-to-15% in most situations), but most people aren’t aware of this fact. An agent will be able to assess your situation properly and position your home to sell at maximum value.
