I am not one of those real estate brokers that will tell you that you can’t sell your own home.
Of course you can!
I am not a mechanic. I often work on my own vehicles.
I am not a trained chef. But I’m a pretty good cook and I prepare a lot of the meals that we eat at home.
I am not a physician. But I often diagnose my condition and determine if there is an available therapy without the intervention of medical professionals.
As a matter of fact, I am one of those people that likes to do everything myself.
However, I will take my car to the shop if I determine it is not worth the time or effort for me to fix it or if I feel that I don’t have the appropriate tools at my disposal.
I will eat at a restaurant if it is convenient and it saves me the trouble of clean up.
I will go to a doctor or hospital if I think that I need treatment that is beyond my level of skill.
Real estate brokerage is a service. If you feel like it would be a beneficial service you can shop price and level of service and determine if the benefit of hiring a licensed, professional broker outweighs the cost of doing so.
It’s a business decision, nothing more, nothing less.
But it’s my business, and it’s what I do!
