Your time is valuable. When you try to sell your Spokane house on your own or enlist the services of a flat rate agent, you are likely going to be spending a good amount of time market, meeting with potential buyers, and answering a lot of questions. You’ll need to show the house and manage the closing process. Why do this to yourself just to receive a lower average sale price? Some people dread the word commission, but when you consider how much more you will make, how much time you will save, and how much easier the process will be, choosing a professional and knowledgeable agent is the only choice!
