Selling A Home

What it means

At the simplest level, a real estate agent represents buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of “real property” (e.g., a house).  When you were looking to buy, the agent you worked with probably spent most of his or her time showing you houses, which is probably why so many people think that’s what agents primarily do. When you’re selling, though, showing your home is actually a very small part of an agent’s job. Assuming you’re working with a full-service agent and that they’re doing a good job, they’ll also be doing much more than that for you.
