It's amazing the number of signs I still see for " For Sale by Owners" verses home owners using a Realtor to list and sell their home. Some items you will get using a Realtor is:
1. Knowledge and Experience- Do you know the correct paperwork for legal compliance when selling your own home verses using a Realtor who has this knowledge?
2. Marketing and Negotiating- Do you know how to list your home at the correct price and market your home to potential buyers? Once you do find someone to make an offer on your home do you have the experience to negotiate the terms of the sell?
3. Time and Effort- Do you know how much time it takes to market your home to potential buyers and buyers agents? It's more than sticking a real estate for sale sign in your yard.
There are a number of factors to consider when thinking of trying to sell your home yourself. The cost is free to talk to a Realtor and have them do a Market Analysis of your home, spending 20 minutes with a Realtor may actually make you more money in the long run!
