Pros And Cons Of Working With a Realtor

Pros:

  • The realtor probably has experience, so they know the process
  • You won’t have to negotiate directly – the realtor will do that for you
  • The agent will guide you step-by-step
  • You could get a price closer to the price you had in mind

Cons:

  • You’ll have to fix your house up (and there are costs associated with it)
  • You’ll have to clean your house (also costs)
  • You’ll have to wait the realtor show your house to several different prospective buyers – (and this could take months!)
  • … which means you’ll have to pay utilities, taxes, and insurance on the house while it’s being shown
  • You’ll have to pay the realtor’s commissions (usually 6% of the selling price -for a $300k house that would be $18k out of your pocket!)
  • You might not get a price closer to your asking price
