Why use a real estate agent to sell? 5 reasons to convince you
When you make the decision to sell, it's often difficult to know where to start. Yet, it is by respecting the different key stages of a sale that you will be able to transfer your property without stress.
Many individuals try each year to sell their apartment or house themselves without going through real estate agencies. Unfortunately, faced with the multiplicity of offers and a tense market between buyers and sellers, many end up turning to real estate agents used to the sector and the current market in order to sell their property.
70% of sellers go through real estate agents to facilitate the sale of their home.
And in this matter, buyers are not left out either. Because it is often more reassuring to entrust its search for a primary or secondary home to a professional rather than going directly through a private individual, buyers mostly entrust their purchase project to real estate agents able to target their expectations and needs.
Putting one's property in a real estate agency therefore optimizes the possibilities of selling quickly, but this is not the only advantage!
Focus on the different reasons to entrust your selling project to a real estate professional.
1. Have a fair estimate of the price of your property.
Pricing a home is surely the most complex part for people not used to the exercise. Too often, owners tend to overprice their property against the market which makes the selling process inefficient and time consuming.
As an individual, it is indeed difficult to give an objective value to one's property because one often attaches memories or even a sentimental value that buyers cannot understand, nor appropriate. Similarly, if it is a secondary property in which you have invested time and money in work for example, you may be overvaluing the sale price by taking into account factors of hardship lacking objectivity.
The evaluation of the price of an apartment or a house for sale by an external person is then essential in order to give a fair value to your property.
To help you make this estimate, a real estate agent can accompany you in order to estimate the real value of your property through objective criteria. Surface area, location, condition, competition, it is by analyzing all these parameters that the real estate agent will be able to set the most appropriate selling price. Moreover, a real estate agency has access to real selling prices, that is to say market prices and not only those displayed in the various published ads.
Thanks to this detailed information, the real estate agent will therefore be able to provide you with a fair price estimate for your property in order to optimize the sale.
2. Professional services to facilitate the sale
Real estate agents have tools, tricks and knowledge that help optimize real estate transactions through various means. Because of this, real estate agents are able to offer you special services dedicated especially to your real estate sale project.
Preparing the ad, taking photos or even virtual visits to simplify the research of potential buyers, a real estate agent takes care of everything to allow you to reach your real estate sale goal in the best time and conditions.
But that's not all! With a complicated market in many geographical areas, real estate agencies today offer more and more additional services to make sales projects more efficient and offer the possibility for sellers to transfer their property more easily.
Among the services offered, home staging is certainly the most frequently offered in recent years.
Offering owners the opportunity to sublimate their primary or secondary dwelling without having to perform major work, the home staging trend allows a property to be enhanced at a lower cost. In fact, home staging allows through small actions of partial renovation to put the property in the trend and allow future buyers to project themselves or even provoke a crush at the time of the visit!

3. Take advantage of effective marketing of your property
In the same way that the professional services of a real estate agency help to highlight the property for sale, it is also important to highlight the property to optimize its sale in a shorter time frame.
In this regard, one fact stands out: real estate agency websites are the most visited spaces by people looking for a property to buy.
According to a Médiamétrie study, more than one French person out of three visits a real estate website or app to find a property to buy or rent.
This figure reveals that the online distribution of ads is a key point in the success of a sale. In the digital age, real estate agencies therefore offer privileged broadcasting media to highlight its property among other ads. While sites dedicated to individuals are often a bit expensive and require a financial contribution to carry out the highlighting of your ad, by going through a real estate agent you benefit from an increased visibility of your offer.
Whether it is on the agency's professional website, on the agency's shop window, on the social networks, on newsletters or even in magazines, your ad will be visible in several places to multiply the chances of obtaining a qualified purchase offer.
The real estate agent also knows who the targets of your ad are and the buyers most likely to be interested!
Because he or she has a long address book and an extensive network, the real estate agent is able to highlight your property in particular on certain media to help you sell better. In addition, publishing your ad on a verified site such as that of a real estate agency with a positive reputation will give potential buyers confidence.
This is why it is recommended to trust a real estate agency to promote your apartment or house sale ad.
4. Save time on the real estate sale
When you decide to sell a home, it involves having the time to take care of all the formalities.
Availability is, in fact, one of the main requirements for making a good real estate sale. Between the calls from potential buyers, the sorting of files, the visits or even the emails, you need to have the time to be able to deal with everything and it is therefore very often difficult as an individual to manage everything at the same time.
When using a real estate agent, all these actions are managed professionally. After using a real estate agency and entrusting the sale of your property to an agent via an exclusive mandate or simple mandate, you are relieved of the formalities of the transaction.
No more nuisance calls and visits to plan in your personal schedule: your mandated real estate agent takes care of everything to save you time.
Privileged interlocutor between the buyers and you, the latter plays both the role of a professional intermediary and mediator. It is through him that all the information and possible purchase offers will pass through so that he can accompany you with his experience in your sales journey.
Thanks to his expert eye, the real estate agent will then select as a priority the most reliable and most likely buyers of your property to avoid visits from the curious. In the same way, the real estate agent in charge of the sale of your villa or apartment will send you the most advantageous purchase offers with respect to the sale price evaluated and set beforehand to save you time and offer you the possibility of making an advantageous transaction.
5. Advice and expertise for a secure transaction
You can't improvise yourself as a real estate agent. A regulated profession, being a real estate agent requires specific knowledge that guarantees the execution of reliable transactions at all levels.
It must be said that a real estate sale is not trivial!
Selling a property meets commercial, legal and technical obligations that must be known in order to protect the seller and the buyer in all stages of the transaction. By using a real estate agent for the sale of your primary or secondary residence in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, you therefore ensure peace of mind.
The mandatory diagnostics, the conditions of sale and more generally the documentation related to the transaction, everything is managed by your real estate agency.
