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.

I used HomeLight to find a real estate agent since I wasn’t in the city where the property was located. I found a great agent to sell my rental property. It was easy to use and saved me a lot of time!

HomeLight provided a user interface that allowed me to easily contact several agents with high ratings. The first Realtor that responded sold my home. I recommend HomeLight and will use them again.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It's going to depend on the temperature of the San Marcos 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 San Marcos?

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 San Marcos?

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.
