Sellers today ask themselves whether it's better to use a full service real estate brokerage (like Onorato Real Estate) to sell their home, a discount agency, or even take a do-it-yourself approach. That's a fair question given the cost associated with selling a property. It's important that sellers know what they are getting themselves into when they pick one over the other.

Selling a home is a lot more complicated than sticking a sign in the yard and waiting for buyers to come running. Selling a home is a "process" which includes preparing your home to be presented in its most favorable light to buyers, establishing marketing strategies, communicating and negotiating the transaction, to the final step... a successful closing. During this process, there are legal and regulatory issues, numerous disclosure requirements, title reports, financial documents, and inspections. Experienced Realtors will smooth this difficult process for you.

Don't shortchange yourself. Working with a full-service REALTOR will save you a lot of time, countless headaches, and help you get the price your home deserves!

It is important that sellers ask questions about this process. Communication between sellers and their Realtor is the key to a successful transaction. At Onorato Real Estate, we strive to keep you informed every step of the way.

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Real estate is no different. Discount brokerages may cost less, but they will also do less --- putting much of the burden on you to sell your home. You need to ask yourself if this is something you have the time or expertise to do. The answer in most cases is no.

Is it possible to market your own home? Absolutely, but you need to ask yourself if it makes good business sense. Just as you wouldn't represent yourself in court or treat yourself for a serious illness, it doesn't make much sense to represent yourself when it comes to the most difficult financial transaction of your life.

Our Realtors at Onorato Real Estate have the professional expertise and the time needed to properly market a home.

Realtors more than earn their commission in the negotiation process by keeping the transaction running smoothly and getting you the absolute top dollar the market allows for your home. Professional agents are savvy, experienced negotiators who know how to get the very best price for a buyer or seller.

Don't shortchange yourself. Working with a full-service REALTOR can save you a lot of time, countless headaches, and help you get the price your home deserves!
