The greatest percentage of home sales in Columbus Ga., Fort Benning and Phenix City areas, can be attributed to realtors, since realtors market homes to other real estate agents first, this guarantees the greatest exposure to the people with the greatest need. Professional real estate agents work with multiple clients at a time and may be involved in dozens even tens of dozen transactions a year, therefore, when selling your home I recommend using a licensed realtor. The Columbus Ga.,Fort Benning and Phenix City Alabama markets have not suffered the drastic slowdown that is evident elsewhere, but there are periodic slow sales periods. Location and price are the primary concerns of home buyers. For those of you with a do it yourself attitude please be aware of these and other hurdles you will encounter.
