Just because it is a seller’s market doesn’t mean you don’t need a good real estate agent. Also, people think they don’t need to market their home in a seller’s market. That is completely untrue and a way to not maximize your profit. So many real estate listing agents slack off in a seller’s market. A listing agent should give the same effort to selling a home in any market. More people through your door = more offers = more money and higher purchase price.
Even in a seller’s market a seller needs to get their home ready to sell. They may not need to do as much but sellers still need to do some minor things to maximize their profits. Also to assure a faster sale. Curb appeal, de-cluttering along with some minor paint touch up is always a good start.
