FSBOs: Don't Go It Alone

By
Mortgage and Lending with Progressive Mortgage

Selling your home on your own is a commendable achievement - if you can actually pull it off. But did you know that nearly 70% of For Sale By Owners end up enlisting the help of a professional? Of course, a few years ago, the real estate market was booming and obtaining a quick sale at the desired price was a much easier task. However, in today's challenging post-subprime market, buyers have more leverage and more inventory from which to choose. Beyond sheer negotiating power, a real estate agent can provide sellers with a comparative market analysis, accurate statistics which show exactly how much homes in your neighborhood are selling for. They will also have access to more serious and qualified buyers. Remember, your home is the most valuable asset you have. Having a qualified professional in your corner could make all the difference.
