Selling your home is a stressful process. It’s hard to say goodbye to the sentimental memories, not to mention the challenge of maneuvering things marketing your home well and taking care of technical paper work.
If you enlist the help of a trusted realtor, not only can you avoid all of the stress and worry of the technical challenges, but you can also expect to sell your home for a higher price.
Need some more convincing that you should list your home with a realtor? Check out a few of the reasons why FSBO is more trouble than it’s worth.
Realtors Get the Right Price
Underpricing and overpricing a home is one of the biggest mistakes that a FSBO seller can make. If you list your home too high, then no one’s going to want to buy it. If you list your home too low, you’ll miss out on maximizing your profit.
The real estate market can quickly changes, and it’s vital to understand the trends if you want a successful sale. Luckily, I offer great resources like Neighborhood Sold Reports and CMA forms, which can help you understand what the right price for your home is. We’ll do the all work in researching local trends, then report back to you!
We Know How to Market
Most people who go the FSBO route lack the marketing resources to get the word out about their home. Sure, there are online resources like social media platforms, and you can put a sign in your front yard, but you’ll be missing out on tons of potential buyers if you don’t use better marketing strategies.
As your trusted realtor, I can use my own network of realtors and online resources to ensure any buyers in the area will know about your home. You won’t have to worry about making posts online and asking family and friends to share it, or buying your own reliable yard sign. I’ll take care of it all, saving you time and stress!
Our Resources Come in Handy
It’s not just about what a realtor can personally do for you, but also about who we know. Imagine running in to a last minute problem, like a pest infestation or an unexpected legal issue, and not knowing who to call. We have tons of reliable contacts in the area — from the best exterminators to top-notch lawyers.
Don’t worry about having to make your own calls in the eleventh hour when you have a realtor. We can ring up our professional contacts, and maybe even get you a discount in the process!
Don’t Worry about Complicated Jargon
ROI, pro-forma, earnest money — all these terms are vital to the selling process, but can be tough to understand. If you have a real estate agent by your side, we know these terms inside and out, and can explain them to you in simple terms.
Selling a house also comes with stacks and stacks of paperwork filled with terms like the ones above. If you go the FSBO route, you’ll have to slog through all of it on your own. But if you hire a helpful realtor, we’ll take care of making it understandable, and make sure all of the terms are in your best interest
