The Pros and Cons of Using a Real Estate Agent to Sell Your House - Trinity Homes

The Pros and Cons of Using a Real Estate Agent to Sell Your House

There are many pros and cons to consider when deciding whether to use a real estate agent to sell your house.  Here are a few quick thoughts:


Pros: Real estate agents are in the business of selling homes and have the contacts and buyers right at hand.

Cons: Your house is competing against many other houses – sometimes in the very same neighborhood – and it can take a long time to get it sold. Meanwhile, you want in your new house yesterday!


Pros: Real estate agents are motivated to sell your home. They don’t get paid until it sells.

Cons: Though your real estate representative should have your best interests at heart, they sometimes must walk a fine line in and you’re not always sure you got the best possible deal.


Pros: By hiring a real estate agent, they take on the burden of the paperwork and red tape.

Cons: You pay a pretty steep price for this convenience at closing. Anywhere from six to seven percent of the selling price of the house – directly reducing any profit you thought you might make – is paid to the real estate agent.
