20 reasons why you want to hire a realtor

Check out 20 reasons why you should hire a realtor to help you with buying and/or selling your home. If you're in the Houston area, you'll be in good hands with ehomehouston. Number 20 is unique in that you can only get that from ehomehouston!


Homes are bought by comparison. Ehomehouston has a large inventory at disposal through MLS while you have an inventory of one. (Click to Tweet)


We are very familiar with competitive houses in the Houston housing market so we can help you position your home well. (Click to Tweet)


Buyers are not always forthright about their financial situation. ehomehouston insists on prequalifying before we even bring you an offer.


It is hard negotiating for yourself. ehomehouston has lots of experience in writing contracts and we can negotiate professionally and aggressively on your behalf.


My lender contacts and mortgage experience help home buyers get the financing they need. (Click to Tweet)


Any follow-up you do with a buyer can be seen as desperation. ehomehouston follows up as part of our job so that you are not perceived in a compromising light.


Most buyers don’t want to tell the seller why they don’t make an offer. We can probe the buyer or his agent for that information.


We can showcase your improvements better so that you don’t appear like you are “selling.” (Click to Tweet)


Unqualified buyers can tie up your home. ehomehouston makes sure that doesn’t happen. (Click to Tweet!)


Personality conflicts with a buyer can get in the way. I come between the buyer and the seller so that personalities don’t enter in to keep a professional environment.


Most sellers who spend their time as a For Sale By Owner end up by listing in the end. Recent NAR research found that only 11% of sellers nationally ended up selling by owner. Why spend your time and money if in the end you will hire a realtor? We’re here for you. 


Most buyers use a realtor. This increases the number of buyers who will see your home. (Click to Tweet)


A FSBO sign makes you vulnerable for any curiosity seeker or unsavory character. When you list, only buyers accompanied by a realtor will get into your home.


Being accessible to show your home limits your personal time and cuts down the available showing time. When you list, your property will be available during normal showing hours and an ehomehouston agent will always accompany the prospective buyer.


An NAR survey of recently closed sellers found that realtor-assisted sales brought in 20% more sales price than For Sale By Owner sales.


With a realtor, your home will have additional exposure through MLS and the Internet. (Click to Tweet) This brings you a higher price for your home.


ehomehouston will orchestrate the contract-to-closing process, including the appraisal, buyer loan process, title, inspections, pest control, survey, etc., taking this burden off of you.


We make sure that you are compliant with all laws relating to the sale of your home. (Click to Tweet)


We only get paid when we get the job done and when you’re happy. (Click to Tweet)


We provide a local/boutique feel and personal service to find the perfect home and more. We aim to be a relationship, not a transactional real estate agent.
