For Sale by Owner?
Here are a Few Things to Think About
As Realtors we often hear that it really isn’t necessary to hire a Realtor to help you sell your home. Why not save the commission and sell the home yourself? Although that may be the case for some homeowners, statistics have shown that less than 10 percent of these homes actually sell. Here are two important things to think about:
Do you totally understand the purchase agreement once you get an offer from a potential buyer? This is very important considering you may be agreeing to items that you don’t know you have agreed to. Also there are a lot of timelines, clauses, and contingencies you need to be aware of. As your Realtors it is our job to make sure you totally understand what the purchase agreement states and exactly what you are agreeing to.
Exposure of your listing on the internet is another factor to consider. For sale by owners are limited in their online exposure as very few websites allow for sale by owners to post their homes for sale. As your Realtors we have the tools to market your home on the internet and get you as much exposure as we can. Statistics have shown that the majority of people find their future homes on the internet.
Hopefully we have given you a couple of things to think about. If for sale by owner is the route you are thinking of taking, we ask that you give us just a few minutes of your time to show you why we believe we should be your first choice for all of your real estate needs.
