Real Estate Agent Vs. FSBO
First things first, what is a FSBO? It's means For Sale By Owner! Next question...are you thinking about selling your house? Let me guess...can't decide to hire a Realtor or go FSBO? Let's look at some reasons why it's a good choice to contact a licensed Realtor and let them help you sell your house!
I know most people think its cheaper to sell their home on their own. I mean you can save ALOT of money on those commissions, right? Selling a home takes lots and lots of time and extensive marketing which can costs thousands if you don't do it right. First of all, FSBO lacks "advertising". Besides Craiglist and the newsppers what other sources of advertising do you have? Realtors have many options ranging from newspapers to many international websites. Most Realtors are in marketing groups or committees with lots of people who know lots of other people! Your address will get around!
What about knowing the market? Do you know what other homes in your area have sold for? Do you know what the real estate market is doing? Do you have any idea what fair market value is? These are all things that your Realtor can take care of and let you sit back and enjoy the listing/selling procedure.
Do you have time to talk to 15 people a day and answer the exact same questions a thousand times? Do you want to have to hold open houses every weekend for months? Do you want to be on your computer constantly searching for new ways to improve your home or make it more appealing to the small amount that are possibly interested? NO, NO & NO you don't! Your realtor is here to handle all of these things for you!
