FSBO's Leaving $$ On The Table!

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway, HomeServices Fox and Roach, Realtors

That's Right!  I said it!  I'm a licensed Real Estate Agent and wouldn't sell my own home as a FSBO!  You just don't get the exposure!  You don't get the qualified buyers!  You don't get multiple offers!  You don't know the questions to ask as far as the lenders, the qualifications, and so many other factors involved in selling a home!  Ok, some will sell!  I get that!


So Why?  Is it Greed?  Is it the distrust for Realtors?  Is it that sellers think commissions are too high, especially if it's a quick sale?


WRONG...WRONG....WRONG....  What I do recommend it the right Real Estate Agent.  Right now it is quite stressful for Agents, buyers and sellers...  Ethics violations all over the place....Agents holding Best and Finals and don't even know how to properly conduct them.  Lack of training...No responding to offers in a timely fashion.  But Not Everyone!  There's a few bad eggs in every field!  YOU MUST CHOOSE THE RIGHT AGENT!  Do your homework.  Don't just hire Billy Bob your nephew that got his license last week!  THIS IS YOUR LARGEST INVESTMENT!  Do it right!  

If you want an agent that has another job in the day and this is to supplement their income, then good luck with that.  Especially when you need to talk to them during the day.  Do you want to hire a team that gives you their newest add on agent or the head of the team?  You may like that route!  Go for it!  Do you want an experienced agent that fully responsive at almost all hours, answers all of your questions, is a shark if needed, an agent that negotiates for you, knows all of the ins and outs of different markets, the right lenders to work with , the right title companies?  

Do you want only qualified buyers entering your home?

It is so much more then a sign in the yard!  If you have questions about selling your home in the following counties of NJ and want a 20 year experienced agent, pick up the phone and call Janet.  No obligation....NO FLUFF... I tell it like it is, whether you like it or not!  Why because this is my Expertise, Not YOURS!  Isn't that why you want to hire me?   Do you want me to tell you your homes value?  Reach out to me for an appt.   janet.larsen@foxroach.com

You make an excellent point about FSBOs who leave $$$ on the table.  Homebuyers who negotiate with FSBOS, often discount offers, and in the process take away any "savings" a seller hoped to have by going without representation.
