Why Use a REALTOR®?


The selling process generally begins with a determination of a reasonable asking price. As your Phoenix REALTOR® and your Real Estate Professional with 24+ years of experience, Sam Elam will provide you up-to-date information on what is happening in the market and assist you in determining your homes current market value and if necessary can suggest cosmetic repairs that can drastically enhance the ability for your house to sell quickly.

The next step is a strong, effective and persistent marketing plan that gets your home SOLD. Marketing, in essence, means letting the world (and especially other REALTORS®) know that your home is for sale and why they should bring their buyers to see it. Studies have shown that more than 50% of real estate transactions throughout the country involve a separate buyer's agent and a seller's agent. Therefore, it is most likely, the agent who lists your house will not also be representing the buyer. For this reason, it is important for your listing REALTOR® to let all the other local Phoenix REALTORS® know that your house is for sale through an effective and persistent marketing campaign.

Another important factor is the Security. When a property is marketed with an agent's help, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. REALTORS® will always pre-screen and accompany qualified prospects through your property ensuring your property from theft or damage.

REALTORS® are also pro's at negotiating and closing. They will help make sure you get exactly what you want from the sale and will ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed correctly and in a timely manner.

REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Email or call Sam Elam at (480-213-1799) for a complimentary evaluation of your home. He'll discuss ways to improve the appeal of your home to prospective buyers and answer any questions you have about the home selling process and marketing of your home.
