Maybe you think you’ll be just fine trying to sell your home on your own. After all, it’s usually a good thing to be fiercely independent. But sometimes, it’s best to seek out assistance from the experts. When you’re feeling sick, you go see the doctor. When your computer is acting up, you seek out a technology savant. And if you’re selling your home and looking to maximize the number of showings, it’s probably a good idea to turn to the Shusterman Team – the RE/MAX agents. Here are four reasons why:
1. Making sure the price is right
No matter the quality of your home or your neighborhood, you may be missing out on potential buyers if your asking price doesn’t fit within the market conditions. That’s where the expertise of a REALTOR® from Shusterman Team can come in handy. Price your home too high, and you’ll discourage potential buyers. Set it at market value, or a touch lower, and you’ll entice buyers out for a bargain! We can factor in market trends, your neighborhood’s desirability, plus the physical value of your home and the investments you’ve made into it, to find a listing price that’s truly sound. Enter this discussion with us with an open mind. It’s common for homeowners to envision an asking price that’s a touch too high; there are so much emotion wrapped up in the home that can blind homeowners to the true market value. We are, in Shusterman Team, can share the sometimes hard truth of your home’s value, but we’ll also ensure your home sells at a price you’re happy with, and nothing less.
2. Connecting the Dots
It’s often said that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. And when it comes to selling a home, Shusterman Team’s agent know all the right people to increase the number of showings. In addition to having access to fellow agents and MLS databases, we can connect you to other professionals in the industry that can hugely benefit your sale, like stagers and photographers (iPhone photos simply won’t do!). On top of finding the right professionals to assist you, we can reach out to fellow agents to help find the perfect buyer if your house sits outside the norm.
3. Showing Off to the World
We know-how to help you figure out the best way to promote your home, from optimizing your MLS listing and formulating an online marketing plan, to printing signage and flyers and organizing open houses. And let’s not forget, hosting an open house takes precious time out of your busy day. Shusterman Team’s agent will save you hours upon hours by hosting your open house, allowing you to enjoy some free time (most likely spent going to other open houses!). 🙂
4. Coming Together
Selling a home, like any big undertaking, is a team effort. Having a team as a teammate with plenty of experience to help you through the process—and who can organize showings even when you’re not around — is a big boost. Remember to be flexible in your schedule, allow your agent to access your home when needed. It’s often helpful to vacate your home for a couple days, if you can, which will increase the number of showings your agent can hold. It also saves you from having to clean your house like a madman, prior to showings. You can do one big clean, leave for a couple days, and return to your, hopefully, sold house!
When it comes to selling your home, hiring a real estate agent not only means less work, worry, and risk, it means hiring someone who is knowledgeable and well versed in all aspects of the real estate industry. You want someone who knows your neighborhood, your community, and has the experience necessary to sell your home quickly and for the best price. You want Shusterman Team!

What are the Risks of Selling Yourself?
As mentioned above, choosing to work with us will mean less work, worry, and risk for you during an already busy and stressful time in your life. However, if you decide to sell your home yourself, it is wise to know the risks you could run into. Take a look at a few of the major ones below:
- Incorrect pricing that turns off potential buyers
- Properly understand all legal matters disclosed in writing to protect your interest
- Safety is a big issue when showing your home. You must plan ahead when it comes to showing your home, and take all potential threats into consideration
