What does an agent do for a Home Seller?
This list simply contains 184 activities but it doesn't stop there. As the market and technology changes, the job of a REALTOR is always changing.
It's often more about what you DON'T see them do than what you do see them doing! There are hundreds of duties agents perform when listing and selling a home and many hours of work involved to complete them all! Some tasks are more time intensive and take hours to perform while other may be a simple phone call.
Most full time agents work more than 60 hours per week. They work unpredictable hours and often have their personal lives interrupted by business. Especially in today's society of texting, emails and the internet.
Some tasks also cost the agent money - money that is spent whether the home sells or not. Meaning, it's money that is spent without guarantee of getting paid for their work at all.
Here is a list of activities that agents spend their time doing... You'll notice as mentioned above, most of it is NOT stuff you actually see them doing for you, their client!
