Think Twice Before Selling Your Home Yourself!
You might think it is an easy task to sell your home yourself (FSBO) so you can save the RealtorⓇ commissions, but that’s where you'd be wrong. If you are not a licensed, experienced RealtorⓇ you would being doing yourself a considerable disservice by trying to sell your house on your own. Below are some highlights from the National Association of RealtorsⓇ (NAR) Profile of Home Buyers & Home Sellers. Selling your home:
● Be ready to negotiate. Here is a quick list of people you will have to negotiate with in order to sell your home; the buyer, the buyer’s agent, the buyer’s bank, the inspection company, the appraiser and the title company.
● Where do buyers look? According to NAR stats, 88% of buyers search online when looking for a home compared to only 21% who look at newspaper ads. Are you ready to pay all those fees to get online and still not have your home on the MLS?
● You must spend money marketing and competing with thousands of Realtors. Most RealtorsⓇ already have an internet strategy for promoting your home, 43% advertise online, 9% by yard sign and only 1% in the newspaper, not to mention they have the MLS where 87% of all homes sell from.
● Using an agent can net you up to $39K more than selling your home yourself because studies have shown that people who are more likely to sell their own home are in markets with lower price points.
