Not using a Realtor® could cost you.

Not using a Realtor® could cost you.


True story about a home seller and a home buyer. 


A Realtor®, recently represented a buyer on the purchase of a home. The seller decided to go it alone to save money. He used the Zestimate to come up with what he thought was a good sales price of $420,000. 


According to recent comparable sales in the area, market value for the home was more in the $500,000+ range. The seller did not realize this and lost out on nearly $100,000. This was a great deal for the buyer!


Homeowners: Don't make the same mistake of trying to save money by selling your home without hiring professional representation. There are a number of things that can and do go wrong like this situation, for example.


An experienced Realtor® can help protect your best interests, guide you through the legal paperwork and advise you on the largest investment of your life by providing up-to-date, reliable, local market information.

Zillow certainly does no favors for buyers or sellers - but I have no idea how you can reach them all to educate them.

Yikes!  Some sellers just don't realize how much a REALTOR® like you will provide them with solid advice to save them money. You got to wonder if that seller ever realized how much money they left on the table.

I heard of a FSBO that kept taking earnest money and the last I heard there were 3 sales.  I laughed and moved on, I can imagine the upset buyers who didn't REALLY have a house.

Wanda great article!  I had a buyer that felt by not using me and going directly to the seller's agent he would save money because the agent would knock off the price of my commission substantially and it would save him $$.  I know the listing agent chuckled all the way to the bank!

I had a seller say to me this year..."when I bought this house I didn't use a Realtor and I'll never make that mistake again". Made me feel so good!
