Selling A House with a Real Estate Agent
 More Resources for Buyers and Sellers
 
 
  At Knoll Greller, s.c., we recognize that real estate agents can be effective marketers of property. That is their job and that is what they are trained to do. However, real estate agents are not attorneys and are prohibited from giving legal advice. Beware that real estate agents may suggest that you enter into a Listing Contract or an Offer to Purchase prior to review of that document by an attorney. An attorney who practices in residential real estate should review all Listing Contracts, offers and counter-offers before you sign the document.

Many home sellers hire a real estate agent to help them sell their home. When a seller is working with a listing agent, the home should be posted on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) so that large numbers of buyers will have access to the seller's property. The real estate agent will also screen potential buyers and arrange to give them a tour of the property. Additionally, the real estate agent will have to pay all the costs of advertising and marketing. The fee charged by a real estate agent is generally a percentage of the selling price of the property. Because of the high cost associated with having a real estate agent, you may want to consider trying to sell the home on your own.

If you choose to list the property with a real estate agent, you should make sure that your agent is a member of the Wisconsin Realtors Association. Additionally, you should have an attorney review the listing contract prior to signing on with an agent.

For more information on Realtors please visit the Wisconsin Realtors Association.
