Work With Carlos Del Rio For Less Hassle and More Peace of Mind

When selling your Denver CO house, make your decision on what’s right for you based on these 3 important factors.

  1. The true costs: Costs come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes clients can be blindsided by all the taxes, fees, and commissions. When you partner with the right Denver real estate agents, like Carlos Del Rio, he will be the expert in your corner to protect your best interests. If a property takes longer to sell, a buyer backs out, there’s a mistake in the contract, etc…Carlos will guide you through all that and make sure you’re not paying more than you should or you’re getting the money you deserve.
  2. Your time commitment: Do you want to be (and have the time to be) heavily involved in all aspects of selling the house? From marketing to taking calls from buyers, to showing the house, doing your own open house, putting signs outside, to setting up the escrow, and more? All so you can save 2 or 3% on the sale. Just calculate what your time and energy are worth. If you’d rather not hassle with the details work with a trusted Denver area agent like Del Rio Real Estate and Investments, Inc..
  3. The “experience factor”: There are hangups that can throw your closing off or cost you thousands. Carlos and his team will help you avoid those by dealing with them for you!
