Why list with Acquire Real Estate?


The sales process is complex, and starts with having an agent you can trust to be responsive to your needs. A full service agency like Acquire Real Estate can assist with almost every aspect of the process. The Acquire “Plan of Action” for the home selling process includes the following:

  • Provide an accurate and reasonable market analysis and suggested listing price

  • Suggest staging or home repairs

  • Discuss Seller’s Goals

  • Promote and Hold Open House(s)

  • Assist with Home Warranty, if needed

  • Regularly update seller to changes in market, both in price and competition and effect on property sale

  • Represent seller in presentation of all contracts/explain terms and contingencies

  • Assist in Contract Negotiations/Counter-Offer Process

  • Explain methods of buyer financing and ramifications

  • Check buyer’s pre-qualification status

  • Coordinate/verify/ keep seller informed on all inspections, appraisals

  • Review Home Inspection findings with Seller

  • Track Buyer’s loan process

  • Explain Closing Costs/Closing Process

  • Review closing documents

  • Attend Closing


It is easy and exciting to list with an agent that suggests the highest price, but understand that the current market sets the listing price. A good market analysis compares the recent sales price of properties similar to yours and makes adjustments for the differences, plus takes into account the current number of homes on the market. The goal is to come up with a reasonable price range that does not allow the home to sit for too long on the market (when it may sell for a much lower price).


The agreed commission will be part of the listing agreement and is a percentage of the sales price of the home. Typically this commission is split with the real estate agent that represents the buyer of the home (the buyer’s agent), and is paid at closing. It is an important marketing component of the sales process to offer a competitive buyer’s agent commission.
How does this compare to selling on your own? The National Association of Realtor statistics show that homes generally sell an average of about 16 percent higher when they are sold by REALTORS. In addition, take into account the time, energy, and cost you will need to invest to market your home and hold open houses, plus the time you will be missing from work to show your home. A REALTOR can help you get a better price, take care of the details, and sell your home faster; well worth the commission you will pay.
