As a Real Estate Agent who has been in business for over 15+ years in Denver I have seen it all.  Market trends that also benefit the seller and the buyer from time to time.  Truth is no one can guarantee what the market is going to do.  It's important for you to find an agent you can trust who has your best selling/buying interest and who has the skills who can negotiate for you.  Here at the Ballard Group we are Certified Negotiation Experts which is a designation C.N.E. that we have trained and also crafted for our clients.  Nowadays you see many brokerages in our market like redfin,opendoor and even Zillow is buying houses.  I was showing houses just yesterday and Zillow was on of the listing companies for the home.  I urge you to do your due diligience when selecting who lists your home and do yourself a favor and interview at least 3 agents/brokerages.  Zillow, Open Door and other cut rate companies will buy your home for alot less that what it's worth. Why?  Becuase they want to turn around and sell it for a profit. Of coarse, they are not going to LOSE money on your home why should they pay you market or above market value? 

I ran across this article the other day and I'll share it with you here about why it's a bad idea to jump in without being informed on what's best for you as a homeowner.
