A seller's agent is a real estate professional who is hired to help sell a property. They represent the interests of the seller and work to get the best price, negotiate terms, and manage the legal process of selling the property. This agent is responsible for listing the property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and handling inquiries from potential buyers.
In the process of selling a property, the seller's agent works with the buyer's agent to negotiate the terms of the sale. This includes presenting the seller with all offers from buyers, negotiating terms exclusively for the seller's benefit, and updating the seller on changes in the market. The seller's agent also oversees the closing process to ensure that all deadlines and requirements are met. Additionally, they handle the buyer's walk-through of the property and can attend the closing with the seller.
It is recommended that both the buyer and the seller each have their own representative working for them, as this ensures that their respective interests are represented and protected throughout the process.
A seller’s agent will guide you through the home-selling transactions and be at your disposal for any questions or concerns. Here are some of the things a seller’s agent will do:
