Realtors are professionals that will make sure your real estate transaction completed correctly, by law and with your best interest in mind. Denver realtors also have access to the most up-to-date real estate systems and references, and techniques to ensure a quick and streamlined process. Selling a house is much more than just putting a sign in your front yard, an ad in the local paper, and if you’re somewhat technologically savvy, putting it up on MLS.
One thing is for sure if you sell your house “by owner”, the buyer knows that you are saving money by not paying a realtor for their expertise and will most likely negotiate accordingly. You will be spending less money but also making less money too. Negotiations are a critical component of the real estate transaction, and you will want an un-emotional third party involved to communicate your needs and leverage the facts.
