Why Should You Use A Professional to Sell Your Waterbury Vermont Home?Closing a Real Estate Deal

When homeowners decide to sell their houses, they obviously want to get the best possible price for their home with the least amount of hassles along the way. However, for the vast majority of sellers, the most important result is actually getting their homes sold.

In order to accomplish all three goals, a seller should realize the importance of using a real estate professional. We realize that technology has changed a buyer’s behavior during the home buying process. According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2018 Home Buyer & Seller Generational Trends Report, the first step that “42% of recent buyers took in the home buying process was to look online at properties for sale.”

However, the report also revealed that 94% of buyers who used the internet when searching for homes ultimately purchased their homes through either a real estate agent/broker or from a builder or builder’s agent. Only 2% of buyers purchased their homes directly from a seller whom they didn’t know.


Buyers search for a home online but then depend on an agent to find the home they will buy (52%), to negotiate the terms of the sale (47%) & price (38%), or to help understand the process (60%).

We understand that navigating the complexity of a real estate transaction can be intimidating. Just going through the paperwork alone can seem like a full time job, let alone the inspections, attorneys, negotiations etc. But that is why we are here!

How to Price Your Home


Another major factor in selling your home, especially in Waterbury Vermont, is being able to market and position your home in a way that communicates value to todays discerning buyer. Due to its proximity to Stowe, Burlington, Montpelier and the Mad River Valley, Waterbury has become quite a popular destination for people to call home. Because of this we see a good amount of foot traffic not only from primary home buyers, but people looking for a second home as well. Marketing to this diverse group of buyers requires a diverse and wide distribution network. Let us do the footwork for you!

The plethora of information now available has resulted in an increase in the percentage of buyers who reach out to real estate professionals to “connect the dots.” This is obvious, as the percentage of overall buyers who have used agents to buy their homes has steadily increased from 69% in 2001.

Bottom Line

If you are thinking of selling your home, don’t underestimate the role a real estate professional can play in the process. At the end of the day, we are here to make your life easier.
