I used HomeLight to identify both a realtor to sell my home in Maryland and to help buy a home in Ohio. I was impressed by the experience, knowledge and marketing capabilities of both realtors.

I had a home that I couldn't sell for 10 years. I decided to try HomeLight and chose the first agent they provided. My home sold immediately! If I sell another home, I will definitely call HomeLight.

HomeLight matched me with three top-selling agents in my area. The whole selection process took very little time. My agent sold my house in three days for over the asking price!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Independence?

It's going to depend on the temperature of the Independence housing market but we generally recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Independence?

On average, the top performing 5% of seller's agents generally command a higher selling price (+9%) than the average real estate agent. The top performing 5% of buyer's agents generally save their clients 2.5% more than the average real estate agent at closing. So, whether you're buying or selling your house, your odds of making more money on the transaction are higher if you work with a top performing agent.

Why do I need to hire a licensed real estate agent in Independence?

Always ensure you’re working with a trained, accredited real estate professional. That's the best way to protect you and your property. Every listing agent should be prepared to deliver proof of their license to sell in your area.
