Knowing whether to use a REALTOR® in Billings MT or go at it alone is a tough choice. It is important to understand what a good agent will bring to the table.

Ask yourself a few question before you decide to go at selling your house alone.
1. Do I have the proper knowledge to price my house appropriately or know what homes are worth?
The first step is reaching a listing price when selling or figuring out the Market Value of a house when buying. Some sellers have an unrealistic idea of the price their house may sell. The Billings MT real estate market is not what it one was. Whether your idea is low or high, your agent will play a crucial role in helping come to a sensible price range. After completing a comparative market analysis (CMA) and examining other data, they will offer their respectful suggestion as to the price range you’ll be able to obtain. Once the listing price has been settled the marketing of your house begins.
2. Am I able to market my home effectively? (when Selling)
The initial marketing of your house is the most important aspect of the marketing process. You’re not just selling a house, you’re selling the intimacy and peace a home should make one feel. A trained realtor can make the marketing of your house easy. Realtors have access to a marketing tool called the MLS (multiple listing service), where they can list your property and all of the real estate agents in the Billings MT area can then find your house for their clients.
3. Do I know the ins and outs of the Buying a Selling Process?
If you have ever bought or sold a house then you know it can be a complicated process, all the paper work, title insurance, title reports, home inspections, appraisals and so on. If your like most people you do not have time or done want to deal with all of this. A realtor can help ease the work load and do most of the work for you.
