Selling Your Home by Owner in Lancaster Co. ? Get Ready to Negotiate !

Real Estate Agent with KW Elite





        Are you thinking of Saving Money by selling your house by Owner this Spring ? On the surface

 it seems like a realistic goal ! But after much effort and experiencing a lot of wasted time most

 Unrepresented Sellers will encounter a very frustrating experience ! In fact less than 15% of all

 Unrepresented Sellers actually succeed in selling their home by Owner !

       One of the number one frustrations voiced by many Unrepresented Sellers is - " it seems that

 nearly every Buyer we talked to said , We are represented by a Buyer Agent (and owe them a

 Brokerage Fee )." The amount of Paperwork and Mandatory Disclosures has most Buyers

 demanding Representation ! Just the task of of obtaining Loan Approval can stress out many a first

 time buyer ! These First Time Buyers will require Advice & Counsel throughout the entire

 transaction and will often back away if they feel in the dark ! Buyers will want to protect their

 financial interests by obtaining numerous tests and inspections ! They will need guidence with

 this ! They also typically fall short in the amount of Money they will need for mandatory Down

 Payment and Closing Costs . It will take carefully structuring of the transaction to create enough

 funds for the Buyer to purchase .

      I've watched numerous first year agents lose a deal or two because their transactions were

 hit with unexpected problems they didn't know how to solve . Quite programs on HGTV have

 made what we do behind the scenes look way to easy ! But an Unrepresented Seller won't

 know this until they are too deep in the transaction ! Get ready to negotiate to attempt to hold

 on to your Sales Proceeds ! Email to receive a 25+ page RPR Sellers

Unrepresented people on both sides are asking for trouble...I am trying to help a buyer that went it alone and now is having huge issues.
