Think You Should "For Sale By Owner" Think Again

Just a little infographic to show how much there is to selling your home.  The biggest thing is that homes sell for more money when sold by agents.  Agents know how to sell homes.  Courses will not help. 

Buyers agents prefer to work with listing agents rather than direct to homeowner.  When you need a legal matter taken care of you go to a lawyer.  When you need your property surveyed you call a surveyor.  When you need do home improvements you call in the specialists: general contractors, architects, plumbers, electricians, etc.  When we want to sell our homes we call the specialist in for that.  That specialist is the Real Estate Agent.

What is not mentioned in the infographic is the literally hundreds of phone  calls from the time the offer is presented to the closing and all the steps until the closing day.

Pat - Great information and info-graph on why a seller should not sell their home alone - bottom line they are losing time and money!  Suggested!

Nice infographic. I think many question the money saved by using an agent.  But I have never had a FSBO say it was easy!

Excellent graphic!  I don't think these sellers truly realize the amount of money they lose by not using an agent. Many of them would think again if they only knew the truth.  Thanks for sharing. Suggested.

Pat, great information for FSBO to consider. Generally, the FSBO wants to save money by not using an agent. But, on average, they leave a lot of money on the table.

Thanks
