Making Real Estate Easy to Understand

Selling Your Home? The Importance of Using an Agent | Simplifying The Market When a homeowner decides to sell their house, they obviously want the best possible price with the least amount of hassles. However, for the vast majority of sellers, the most important result is to actually get the home sold. In order to accomplish all three goals, a seller should realize the importance of using a real estate professional. We realize that technology has changed the purchaser’s behavior during the home buying process. For the past two years, 92% of all buyers have used the internet in their home search according to the National Association of Realtors’ most recent Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers. However, the report also revealed that for the second year in a row 96% percent of buyers that used the internet when searching for a home purchased their home through either a real estate agent/broker or from a builder or builder’s agent. Only 2% purchased their home directly from a seller whom the buyer didn’t know. Buyers search for a home online but then depend on an agent to find the actual home they will buy (53%) or negotiate the terms of the sale & price (31%) or understand the process (63%). Stephen Phillips, the Chief Operating Officer for HSF Affiliates LLC, put it best:
“Home buyers are more informed than ever with their Internet searches and ongoing research; however, there’s a critical need to transform that information into analysis and advice that helps consumers make the best home-buying and selling decisions.
The plethora of information now available has resulted in an increase in the percentage of buyers that reach out to real estate professionals to “connect the dots”. This is obvious as the percentage of overall buyers who used an agent to buy their home has steadily increased from 69% in 2001.

Bottom Line

If you are thinking of selling your home, don’t underestimate the role a real estate professional can play in the process.

Realtor®, Owner

Thank you for visiting our site. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to meet for coffee to explore how we can work together. Sincerely ~ Rick Janson

Rick is an exceptional Realtor. He has been my Realtor for 2 years and he has helped me buy two homes and sell two others. I have been extremely pleased with his experience, professionalism and service. I was able to buy both homes well under list price and sell my houses quickly and at a premium. His background in business, law and other areas of real estate make him extremely qualified and his skill set shines through regularly. I have referred him to several friends and co-workers and will continue to do so.

Sellers and Buyers, Repeat Clients

My husband and I would both highly recommend Rick. He has a lot of knowledge about the real estate market and his legal background gives him an advantage above other agents. He was able to secure us a beautiful home in a highly competitive market. We won a bidding war with over 6 offers and I know that would not have been possible if we had chosen someone other than Rick. Because of him we now live in our forever home.

Home Buyers

Rick represented me as buyer’s agent for the purchase of an investment property in Denver Colorado. It was complex deal, and Rick was instrumental in its success from sourcing to execution largely because of his sophistication and legal expertise. His negotiating acumen is useful in gaining an upper hand in a negotiation with less experienced agents. I would work with Rick again.

Julian Scurci

Buyer, Investment Property

Rick not only helped us find our perfect first purchase, but he negotiated with the Seller’s Realtor to save us thousands. Being a first time buyer is stressful enough and it is easy to be taken advantage of if you do not have a knowledgeable person to help out. We spent several weekends searching for our perfect home with Rick and we could not be happier. He’s not in it for the commission, he’s in it to help you!

Chris and Kasey

Home Buyers

Rick was really patient as we explored many neighborhoods and multiple price ranges. He did not try to convince us we loved houses or that quirks in a house were lovable. He did have a lot of useful input about which changes would be relatively easy and which would be major. As we were new to Denver, we also benefited from his knowledge of good restaurants around town. He’s also pretty funny–a great plus in light of the time you can spend moving from place to place.
