For Sale By Owner – Why you want to work with a Realtor

Realtors do more than just show you properties, they work in your best interest from first showing to the closing table.  An experienced realtor will help you navigate the intricacies of a buy/sell contract, market activity and inspections.  We’ve put together the top reasons you should work with a Real Estate Agent instead of navigating the real estate waters on your own:

1 – Contracts

Real estate contracts – also known as a Buy/Sell – should not be taken lightly.  They are legally binding contracts and entering into one without representation of an Agent who understands the language and ins-and-outs could get you into trouble.  We will go through the contract with you – word for word – to make sure you understand what you are signing.

2 – Marketing

Sellers: getting your home “showing ready” is important before you let anyone through the door! Real Estate Agents can help give you tips so your home will be appealing to the most amount of buyers.  We can help you make sure your home looks it’s best!  Another challenge with marketing your home on your own is getting your home seen by the public. Besides our professional photos and 3D virtual walk-through tour, we market our listings in multiple publications (local and national), social media and multiple real estate sites.

3 – Inspections

Working with a Real Estate Agent can give you peace of mind during the inspection process.  We work on your behalf to help you close the deal with what you feel is fair.  Negotiating is a part of the inspection process and our experienced agents can help you navigate it.  You could end up paying for unexpected things later without guidance from a Realtor.

My wife and I used Jody Savage for the sale of our home in Gallatin Gateway, MT. Jody was exceptional in all phases of our sale. We had multiple offers over asking price and sold our home in two days! Jody uses up to date modern marketing, was extremely professional and knowledgeable regarding our market and addressing our needs. She was great to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. Jody is the best in the business and we highly recommend her services!

G & B

Jody Savage is knowledgeable, trustworthy and tireless. I purchased a property this spring (2017) near Bozeman; Jody represented me as well as the seller in the transaction. Jody led me through the entire process because this was the first property I had ever purchased. HOA complications and other details made the purchase more difficult. Jody undertook a boat-load of legwork to make the transaction go smoothly. I hope to work with Jody again.

Jody was awesome to work with. We were new to the area and she was helpful and knowledgeable about not only the housing market, but schools, and lenders. She worked with my work schedule for showings. Jody also stayed late to write an offer to meet our schedule. I would recommend Jody to anyone needing a realtor.

Jody is amazing. She knows the market and was able to advise us on all our many concerns. We so appreciated how responsive she was; within minutes of submitting an online request for realtor contact on a house, she had called us. All our communications with her were like that; we never had to wait long to hear back from her. She was patient and always willing to sit down and meet with us. When we found the house we wanted, she worked tirelessly to secure it for us, and she was extremely patient with us. She was easy to communicate with, understand, and a pleasure to work with – I highly recommend Jody!

Jody is FANTASTIC!! We were first time home buyers and she was with us ever step of the way! She never made us feel silly for being new to the process. She definitely knows the area, always kept us up to date on new listings and was just a delight to work with. I would have absolutely zero hesitation recommending her to anyone. Thanks for all the hard-work Jody! We love our house!

We chose to talk to Jody about representing us in selling our home for one primary reason… her website. I researched realtor websites in Bozeman and reached the conclusion that I liked hers the best – clean, simple to use, great photography, and the virtual tours really appealed to me.   When we met with her, it was obvious that she offered so much more than just a great website.  She was very knowledgeable of our specific area and homes that have sold and those currently on the market.  She had realistic ideas on pricing and great recommendations on staging our house. And everything was done so quickly… our house was on the market within 36 hours complete with photography and the virtual tour.

Shortly after it was listed, another realtor was showing the home next door.  He came over to ask a quick question, saw Jody’s sign out front, and said “I see you hired the selling machine”.  Well, I took that as confirmation that we had made the right choice… I have nothing but positives to report about how she handled negotiations and the advice that she gave us along the way.  She responds immediately (I like early risers).  I love her energy.  We were pleased with the outcome.  We highly recommend her.
