 Sure sounds like a great idea Huh?  Think again.  Agents know how to sell homes and keep them that way.

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 - This is the sort of information that should be talked about more often. This kind of information is not talked about.

Hi Pat Laracy Baker, this is an excellent example of how complex a real estate transaction is....and why you should hire a professional.
