Every person who wants to sell its house has two options and those are selling through a realtor and selling by owner. You choose which of these options are most appropriate for you. People who have experience as real estate agents or just simply know more about this process will choose to sell their houses without a real estate agent. On the other hand, people who don’t know much about this, are more prone to buy a house with the help of a real estate agent.
There is no right choice and in this article, we are going to show you the benefits of each of these two options. Rebeca Fairley Raney has written an article about 10 benefits of using a real estate agent to buy a home.
10 Benefits of Using a Real Estate Agent to Buy a Home
It’s true that anyone can shop for a house, and even get a peek inside, without formally signing on with a real estate agent. But unless you have time to make home shopping a part-time job, an agent might be able to match you with the perfect property much faster. Say you want a swimming pool. Or don’t want a swimming pool. Or maybe you want a fenced-in yard for the dog or a basement playroom for the kids. If you’re looking for something specific, a real estate agent is the person whose job it is to know if there’s a house out there to fit your needs, and he or she will hold your hand through the deal to boot. Let’s look at some of the top benefits of using an agent to buy a home.

The second option is selling a house without the help of real estate agents. There are several advantages of using this method and all of these are collected in the article below which has been published by The Financial Web. As you guess, avoiding agent fees is the number one benefit of using this method.
Advantages of Selling Your House “For Sale by Owner”
If you are planning on selling your house with a real estate agent, you will have to get used to the idea of paying the agent a large commission. She is going to take a certain percentage of the entire price of the sale. In most cases, this will be a substantial amount of money. A typical real estate commission is about 6 percent. If a house sells for $200,000, this would amount to $12,000 in commission. By simply doing the work yourself, you can keep this amount of money in your pocket. You need to determine if having someone else handle the process of selling the house is really worth 6 percent of the value of your house. If you do not think it is, selling your house on your own is the way to go.
