Dave Ramsey says...Use a Real Estate Agent!

By

I like to read Dave Ramsey's columns...always useful advice and things to think about.  Last week his column really hit home, no pun intended :)  So, for all of the potential home sellers and buyers out there, here it is:

Dear Dave,
What are the advantages of using a real estate agent versus going the for-sale-by-owner route when it comes to selling a home?
Seth

Sold!Dear Seth,
I've had a real estate license for 30 years. If I were to put my personal residence on the market today, I'd use an active real estate agent who really knows his or her stuff in the marketplace. I'd gladly pay them their commission, too.  Now, why would I do that if I could just sell it myself and save the commission cost?  For starters...

To read the rest of Dave's answer, go to his June 7, 2010 column by clicking here.  Thanks Dave!

Deidre,

I saw his article in the Dallas Morning News and was most appreciative of what he had to say about using a real estate agent.

Marketing, local turf knowledge, the broker's been around the block and seen it all...many reasons to use a REALTOR to get the job done right, save headaches, make more money as the bottom line.

It always helps when we have someone on our side who has positive things to say!  Most of us do a good job...unfortunately, it's the ones who don't that people tend to remember.
