Want Top Dollar for Your Fountain Hills Home? Don't Sell on Your Own!

Whenever the Arizona real estate market is on a roll, Fountain Hills homeowners can be tempted to try and sell a home on their own. Especially when for-sale-by-owner services spring back up, promising big results for an up-front fee. But the truth is, you rarely do better going it alone! Here are just a few reasons why!

1. Trust. Real estate professionals adhere to a code of ethics and standards of conduct that protect home sellers and buyers alike. We are licensed and regulated. We are educated in many different areas of specialty. As resources for the community, we provide market information and guidance free of charge through websites, blogs, social media and more.

2. Price. Automated, online home values are very generalized and can be "off" by thousands of dollars! This is because they do not take condition and amenities into consideration. These values are a starting point for discussion, but should not be used as a price basis when selling - or buying - a home! Only an experienced real estate professional can provide an accurate comparative market analysis and insights on sales trends.

3. Negotiation. The objective of selling your home is to obtain the best possible sales price in the shortest amount of time. There's much more to it than listing a price and then sticking to your guns! Sales contracts and contingencies get complicated, and without tactful negotiation, deals don't happen. Real estate professionals are trained negotiators and skilled diplomats.

4. Exposure. The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) provides a database of homes for sale that is unmatched by any sale-by-owner service. Homes on the MLS are distributed to the largest and most popular real estate websites in the country, and can be viewed by home buyers worldwide!
