Why It’s Always Better to use a REALTOR

With Spring right around the corner you may be interested in putting your home up for sale. Have you ever heard that Realtors are overpriced, or you can sell your house on your own and save the money? There are facts and figures stating that the above statements are truly a myth.

More than 80 percent of homes that first hit the market as a Sale By Owner (FSBO) eventually end up being sold by  a Realtor.  Think about the money that is wasted by trying to sell your home on your own. You need to consider the costs of advertising, signs, flyers, etc. If you do get lucky enough to sell your home without a realtor it is very likely that the buyer will come represented by a Realtor who will need to be compensated by you as the seller.

Don’t forget that buyers of FSBO properties will expect to receive a lower price for your home since you aren’t paying Realtor fees. There have been several studies stating that FSBO properties sell for 10 to 20 percent less than homes sold by a Realtor.

Also, keep in mind of the time you will spend trying to find a buyer for your home and get the deal closed.
