Before deciding to place your home on the market yourself, we urge you to consider the following.
I write this because I have encountered several FSBO's For Sale by Owner homes this year.
Fact: Homes listed by a Realtor almost always sell for more money. Your home gets exposure to a much larger buyer pool than the advertising you can do on your own.
Fact: We handle the scheduling of appointments and you do not have to answer endless phone calls and try to coordinate showings and have to be home to show.
Fact: You will be much less likely to have your home previewed by someone that cannot buy a home or by someone that simply wants an opportunity to see what you have so they can come back when you are not home and do the wrong thing.
Fact: You will be significantly less likely to tie your home up with a buyer that cannot perform costing you money and aggravation and delays in getting to your next destination.
Fact: You are far less likely to leave yourself in a liability position as we Realtors® know what disclosures must be provided and what paperwork is required to properly complete your home sale.
There are other things to consider before deciding to sell your home yourself that we are happy to share with you. Call or email us and we will promptly reply.
We know many home owners have successfully sold their homes on their own, but if I was not in this business, I would feel much more comfortable having a professional assist me in the sale of my home. I have first hand knowledge of what it takes to sell a home and it is a lot of work, knowledge, time and expense for us as Realtors®. By using a Realtor® you allow us to put our tools to work for you.
