Working with a Platinum International Real Estate and Investments Agent Vs. Working Alone

What are the benefits of selling your home with a Platinum International Real Estate agent?

A good real estate agent brings experience and knowledge to the home-selling experience that can ease the process for their clients.
Pricing a home correctly is the key step to a successful sale, and an agent's experience selling other homes in your area and knowledge of the market as whole, can help him or her determine how to price your home to sell.
A good real estate agent is also familiar with local laws, like those regarding issues you may have to disclose to potential sellers, and will be familiar with staging a home -- ways to arrange furniture and belongings so the space appeals to potential home buyers.
An experienced agent will also know where and how to advertise your home for optimum exposure and will handle placing the listings for you. The price of advertising is usually included in the agent's commission at the end of the sale and not before.
Once there is interest, he or she will then take potential home buyers on tours of your house and will often arrange open houses or private tours.
According to the National Association of Realtors, home sellers who use an agent receive 16 percent more for their homes.
