For Sale By Owner
It’s a great question. “If there are so many Buyers out there and it is sooooo easy to sell a home, why would I pay a realtor to sell it for me? Crazy!” “Why don’t I just bang a sign in the lawn, sit back and watch it sell?”
It’s true, no one needs a realtor, some people choose to list their home “For Sale by Owner”. If they’re lucky legally, it can sometimes work out and it’s certainly cheaper. Odds are, if it does sell, it will likely sell for less… but hey, you’ll have sold it yourself and not payed ANY commission. So then why do so many informed sellers choose to use a realtor, even in a sellers market? It’s a bit redundant isn’t it?
As a professional Realtor, I am at work in this industry every day! I have access to the latest sales data for comparable homes, possess an in depth understanding of neighborhood values and contract law. I have extensive experience at marketing, negotiating, and selling homes. A top realtor with a strategic and well executed listing plan, will net you more money with a higher sale price, protect you legally and guide you through the process while helping you to understand each step along the way. This means your left with more money in your pocket, your protected legally and the process is much less stressful. Listing with a competent realtor in any market, just makes sense.
