Selling Your Home in CO
Hiring a real estate agent is an important decision. One of the first jobs of the agent will be do provide you with a CMA or comparative market analysis. This is where the experience of the agent comes into play. Real estate agents offer their services at a variety of commission rates and will likely range from 5% to 7%. There can be a big difference in the quality of the service you receive, so remember, that if you hire a discount realty company, you may not receive service equivalent to that of a higher priced realty broker.
