Go With A Pro
Selling a house – how hard could it be? From the many homeowners who have attempted to sell their houses themselves, the answer is, "Much harder than it looks!"
You may have heard the term "For Sale By Owner" or "FSBO", which means that a homeowner is attempting to sell their home without the services of a real estate sales representative. Doing this presents some unique challenges to the seller, including but not limited to these issues:
- Homeowners tend to overprice their homes. Factoring in sentimental value alone, owners often price their homes as distinct, unique properties – not as one of a number of similar properties in the area. Up-to-date pricing — the kind a local real estate sales representative knows — is key to generating initial interest in the property for sale.
- Education on realty legal matters is crucial for any owner thinking of selling a property, especially for those without professional real estate guidance. Disclosures, legal forms and contracts must be in place and real estate laws must be adhered to in order to avoid any vulnerability to lawsuits.
- Advertising exposure generates significant interest in a property, and sellers going through a real estate sales representative benefit from the wide influence of being included on the Multiple Listing Service®, a powerful tool available to REALTORS®.
Remember, your real estate sales representative only gets paid when your property sells, so we'll do whatever it takes to make sure you achieve your goal – and ours! – by completing your home sale to your ultimate satisfaction.
