Everyone’s heard the old saying, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” While this is true in many circumstances, it might not be the best practice to follow when selling a home. Handling complex legal issues, offering security when dealing with strangers in a home, properly staging a house for sale and effectively marketing the property are all tasks best executed by a knowledgeable real estate professional that has the expertise, and more importantly, the time to do these things well.

Using a professional real estate sales associate can bring big rewards. According to the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), 84% of sellers used a real estate agent when selling their home in 2008, while 81% of buyers purchased a home were assisted by a professional agent or broker.
When it is time to sell your home, let a Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty real estate sales associate handle the details and give you the best opportunity to get the right price for your home.
