For most people, selling their own home is such a complex and important undertaking that hiring an agent to handle the details is the smartest way to proceed. For sellers, the process of getting their home sold can be overwhelming, partly because the outcome can influence the seller’s personal situation and partly because there is so much to do. For agents, the proper handling of a home sale can be extremely rewarding, both financially and personally.
