Do You Sell Real Estate on a Daily Basis? Why You Should Not Try to Sell Your House on Your Own!

Do You Sell Real Estate on a Daily Basis?  Why You Should Not Try to Sell Your House on Your Own!


This is not a stock purchase, airline ticket or vacation.  This is your life and your future, and the repercussions of a bad or uneducated move could be costly.  Very costly!


There are abundant risks involved in any real estate transaction.  And, if you don’t have the experience to deal with them, timely and in an appropriate manner, you will likely get burned.  You are the one who is taking the heat.  And, you are the one with the most to lose. 


People who have not worked in this industry will probably have no idea.


There are many web sites to research. However, there is no substitute for the proven professional in your corner. 


And, no, I am not referring to just someone you know with a license...I am talking about the serious professional you will know when you meet one. 


You will feel the passion, and they will be making eye contact.  Are you prepared to meet someone with years of experience in buying and selling real estate on your own?


You don’t do this every day of your life for years.  You will be going toe to toe and head to head with someone who knows the market, likely, knows the laws and knows the best real estate negotiating tactics. 


I hope if you are selling on your own, I am not the buyer agent.  You will be up against someone who is a professional and not an amateur.


I know the market, the laws and how property needs to be purchased.  Do you?

Just today I worked with a lovely lady for 2 days and today she says she has a lifelong friend that is a Realtor and her friend advised her to break her signed contract with me for purchasing her new home and allow her to write it.

Not only is this "friend" not a real friend but this "friend" is about to lose her license for a minor violation called Tortious Interference.

This will be one "realtor" I will make sure to help right out of our business.

Using a professional real estate agent is the only way to go. For most people, buying a home is the biggest purchase they will make.

Don...I just talked last week with a couple who sold on their own and are now getting sued.  Sadly, I believe they will lose because they don't know the law.

I read somewhere that even the guy that started hired an agent to sell his house. It's not something that is as easy as self checkout at the grocery store.

I had a message today of someone who wants my help.  I am honored to be the one helping them.  We all have skill sets.... mine is real is real estate.  That couple has two other skill sets of things I can't fathom doing.

Hi Don --- it also takes more than watching some HGTV episodes of House Hunters to make you a real estate expert.

The people who sue are often looking for a for sale by owner.  The people wh o want to sell by owner rarely know all that goes into the educator of a realtor or broker.

Don, I think the old saying that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing is appropriate here. Like what Chris Ann Cleland had to say.
