    I have met a lot of people who want to sell their house, but why do they choose a Realtor? Why do they spend money on Realtor commissions? There are lots of investors will buy a house directly from the sellers. Then why do they waste money on advertising, or Realtor commissions?

    There are several reasons to select the realtor for sell any properties. It’s important to treat any properties as a product.

    There are numerous reasons to choose the realtor. Agent is a critical part of the selling process. When you select an agent, you’re performing a rigorous job interview for a prized position. The most important conversation you will have with your agent is about the price of your home.

    Here, some essential points for your question.
    • Ability to meet your actual requirements
    • Widely Knowledge of the area in which you’re selling your property

    How people make decisions in this circumstance can be attributed primarily to two things:

    1) Situational circumstances - Such as needing to sell within a certain time
    2) Perceived skill gap - Don't feel comfortable selling a house themselves.

    For some, addressing either of these circumstances justifies the cost - one of a variety of pain points associated with any purchasing decision.

    Others have already pointed out many of the key factors. I would point out two more:

    1. Access to the Realtor Multiple Listing Service. Even though there are other avenues to advertising the availability of a home for sale by owner (FSBO), the traditional MLS still gets a lot of exposure.

    2. Access to cooperating brokers and their clients. A lot of buyers still look to the assistance of their own selected broker to help them in their hunt for a new home. Since cooperating brokers typically are paid a portion of the fee paid by the seller to the listing broker, if the home is FSBO, their is often no mechanism for paying the buyer's broker. If the buyer's broker doesn't see an opportunity to earn a commission, he or she has no incentive to show your home to the prospective buyer.
