Should you use a Realtor or a licensed real estate agent/broker?
Many beginning investors try to sell a property without a real estate agent broker or realtor to save money on commissions. They also neglect to include the required commissions in their estimate of cost for the property.
During my competitive real estate broker days at FirmRE.biz, I used to love assisting investor clients. They are easy to work with, since the relationship is usually easy, since the goals are clear. No emotional transactions or confused buyers on what they wanted. A mutual beneficial relationship which can assist a rookie agent get knowledge and experience in the world of real estate investing.
If you are selling a property retail to an owner occupant, failing to use an agent is a mistake. In fact majority of the sellers I used to assist in helping sell their properties had tried selling by them selves.
I know, most real estate agents do not aggressively market
One of the major reasons to use a real estate agent or broker,
Either way you choose is up to you. Just remember if you are flipping the property, you need to buy and sell fast. Having someone assist you in either end, will always improve your system. Good luck playing Real Monopoly.
