What do Seller's Want?

Sellers all want the same thing - buyers!!!!! But they do not want 'educated' buyers. They want someone to walk in, fall in love with their house, and offer an unreasonably high price, in cash! That would be an ideal seller situation! What do buyers want? Well, they want an uninformed seller who is willing to part with a property under market price, in move-in condition, with seller paying at least part of the closing costs! Again, an ideal situation. So what is a consumer to do?????

Balance can be achieved by hiring the right professional. In this case it is a knowledgeable real estate agent, either a seller's agent or a buyer's agent depending on your particular side of the transaction. How do you choose an agent? Local market knowledge is the key. Professional education is the basis to a sound real estate career but experience (i.e. success) in your market is the primary criteria! A professional Realtor can balance the buyer/seller playing field. After all, buyers and sellers are not in an adversarial relationship, just looking for a win-win outcome!
