Selling Your First Home: How the Right Agent Makes All the Difference


A young couple meeting with a real estate agent.

After years of living in your home, you’ve decided that it’s finally time to sell. Well, you’ve chosen an amazing time for selling your first home!

Our market is currently tipped towards sellers, meaning you stand to make an excellent return on your investment by listing now. Low inventory and high demand mean homes in the Triangle are selling quickly and for top dollar.

To save money, you might be considering foregoing a professional real estate agent and selling by yourself. While that’s certainly an option, having an agent on your side will make you more money in the long run.

That’s not the only benefit. Here are four key benefits to working with a real estate agent like HomeTowne Realty to sell your first home.

A Detailed Marketing Strategy

The right agent will have a thorough marketing strategy in place to ensure your property receives maximum exposure. For example, at HomeTown Realty our strategy includes both digital and print advertising to reach interested buyers.

In addition, we use innovative design principles to create ads that are engaging and personable. However, one of our most effective techniques is community influence.

We rely on our network of local businesses and professionals in order to target an even larger network of Raleigh-area homebuyers.

Unparalleled Guidance
