Sellers - What Does the Founder of ForSaleByOwner.com Know that you Don't?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Heart Realty Group, Inc.. IL-471.002355

For those seller's in the Fox Valley and Chicagoland area that still think that DIY when it comes to selling your home is the way to go think about this .

 

What does the founder of one of the largest FSBO websites know that you don't know?  Just read the Wall Street Journal's article and then think again about your chances of selling what is most likely your largest asset on your own without a professional real estate broker.

With the declining rates of For Sale By Owner's or FSBO's - the founder of the website: ForSaleByOwner.com is smart enough to know that in today's market you need the help of a professional.

 

Click here to read the article and then reconsider how much your time and effort is worth before deciding that Do it Yourself selling of your most important asset is worth what you think you will save on commission.

Then whether your selling your home as a regular market listing (you have enough equity to cover your selling expenses and make a profit) or you have suffered a hardship and need to sell your home via a "short sale" give me a call and allow me to assist you in selling your home.

DIY is fine for doing small home improvement projects if you have the required skills but not for selling your home in today's unusual real estate market!

Don't believe everything you read, there is quite a lot more to this story than meets the eye, and many changes have been made to the process since prior to 2006 but the site is not in the business to provide negativity. Instead perhaps consumers can make thier own decision and use the tools provided on the site to find out if this process is for them. Selling your home by owner is not for everyone, one has to be willing to put the time and effort into the home selling process, like and agent would do for any client. The seller is the home's best advocate and they are their own real estate agent in this alternative method - simply putting a posting on a website isn't fully utilizing the success receipe. The site however, does provide those who would like to save their equity the tools and resources to sell their home themselves.

Stephanie:  You need to share what you know about the story otherwise the perception will remain.  For the right seller this may be an option but even with a professional realtor seller's don't follow instructions so I can see how this is not for the majority iof homesellers.
