This is a question I hear from people trying to sell their home every day. The short answer is, yes – you can sell your home yourself. But you will undoubtedly have a harder time than if you had worked with an agent, and you’ll probably (dun dun DUN) lose money on the deal.
Studies show that home sellers who use a real estate agent to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell their home themselves. That is because agents stay up to date on critical processes, and can keep your home sale to the letter of the law. Many buyer agents won’t even show FSBO’s (For Sale By Owner) to their clients because of the legal risks AND the likely lack of compensation for the agent, so selling a home on your own can actually COST you more money than it saves you on paying a commission.
I can help you sell your home for top dollar, in the right time frame, and handle all the paperwork for you. I will market your home online through all the top search engines, and throughout the neighborhood. I will also market your home directly to other agents and buyers. A lot of agents just throw a sign in the yard and show your home on their website, but I work for my money – I go out and find agents with qualified buyers who are ready to buy now!
If you’re thinking of selling, don’t shoot yourself in the foot by being a FSBO. Call me today for a free market analysis to find out your home’s current market value and we can go from there to get your home sold fast!
