SELLERS

A step-by-step guide to selling your home

SELF-REPRESENTATION, ASSIST TO SELL PROGRAM OR A REAL ESTATE COMPANY?

There are several options available when selling your home: self-representation, an assist to sell program, or a real estate company. Self-representation is the least expensive option but it is also risky, inefficient, time-consuming, and less effective. Assist to sell programs are also cost-efficient but lack the resources, network, and services that real estate brokers offer - and are therefore less effective and potentially more costly in the end. It is to your advantage and in your best interest to partner with real estate brokers to sell your home for the best possible price and terms. National Properties brokers are fully committed professionals, have access to a wide variety of resources, and have the skill and experience to achieve the highest price possible for the sale of your property.
