Selling your home with a  REALTOR® is the same as selling your home with a real estate agent, right? Actually, a REALTOR® is quite different from just any real estate agent. And when you're selling your home in the Virginia countryside, this difference could cost you valuable time, money, and unneeded stress if you do not carefully choose the right professional. 
 
Let's go over the key differences between a REALTOR® and a real estate agent and why it matters when you are selling your home. 
 

A REALTOR® vs. Real Estate Agent

All real estate agents are licensed professionals, but REALTOR®S are real estate agents who are members of the National Association of REALTORS®. 
 
REALTORS® follow the standards and code of ethics of this national association, protecting your interests in every stage of the home selling process. This also means that they have access to more resources and information that will help you during your home sale.
 

Why Sell Your Virginia Country Home with a REALTOR®?

Any real estate agent can sell your home, but it takes the expertise and in-depth knowledge of a REALTOR® in the Virginia countryside to do it right. No matter what, a REALTOR® will protect your best interests and will work closely with you through every detail, making sure you save time, money, and worry. 
 

A REALTOR® Gives You Peace of Mind

Home selling can often be stressful. It seems like there are a thousand things that need to be done, whether it's decluttering the closets and attic, fixing the minor repairs, tackling any major repairs, or depersonalizing your home to attract buyers looking for a Virginia country home. 
 
A REALTOR® in the Virginia countryside will guide you step-by-step through your whole home selling process. He or she will take care of the details so you can focus on what matters.
 

A REALTOR® Prices Your Home Competitively

The real estate market in the Virginia countryside is always changing, and selling your home is often about timing. A REALTOR® will have all of the information you need to know when is the best time to sell, what is the right price for your home, and how other home buyers will see your property among the thousands of online listings.
