If you’re thinking about selling your home on your own, think again. The only way to get the most out of your home sale is by hiring a Realtor.
As you prepare to sell, you might be thinking you can save some money by not hiring a Realtor and listing your home by yourself. Studies have shown that the opposite is true. You get more money out of your home when using a Realtor for several reasons.
The first is that a Realtor is an expert advisor. They are educated, trained, and know the market well. They know all the rules, regulations, and work that it takes to get your home sold. When it comes to selling, a well-trained seasoned expert can make a huge difference on whether you get top dollar for your home or not.
I’ve seen FSBO (For Sale By Owner) sellers do a few things that you should avoid if you’re going that route, including how they handle their due diligence fees, earnest money deposits, and disclosures. I also see many of them fail to use high-quality professional photography when marketing their home.
Your home is typically the biggest investment you will make in your life. You want to hire someone to sell it who is an expert and can get you the most amount of money with the least inconvenience.
If you have any questions for us or if you’re thinking about selling, make a wise decision and contact myself or another local Realtor to talk about how we can make a difference in selling your home. We are always here to help, and we look forward to hearing from you.
