WHY FSBO CAN BE A BIG NO-NO


1. Keeping emotions out can be difficult

Your home typically means something to you. It is where you’ve created memories. Because of that, it can be difficult to remove your emotions from a sale. Agents are there to be a mediator for rejections or negative feedback. It can be emotionally tolling to have your home rejected multiple times. Having an agent there to negotiate terms, repairs, and everything in between will offer peace of mind instead of stress and heartbreak. 

2. Selling a home can be a full-time job

Even if you don’t already have another job, selling your home can consume all of your time. Are you available to meet for a viewing or answer potential buyer calls at any time during the work day? Do you have the experience to market your home and ensure it is being seen by potential buyers? Even if you have some free time, selling a home can be a daunting task. It is the job of an agent to do all of this for you, so that you can sell your home without taking on the workload of another full-time job!

3. You could be sued

There is a reason agents need training. Legal paperwork is a core part of home selling and buying, and unless you are a lawyer, there is chance you may miss something in your paperwork. If you forget to disclose something you are aware of, even accidentally, you could be held liable for fraud. Why risk the cost of a major lawsuit when you can hire a knowledgeable agent instead?

4. You aren’t actually saving money

When you have minimal knowledge on how to negotiate the price of your home or how to market properly, the fact of the matter is that you are probably going to have to sell your home for much less than you planned. That loss is usually much more than the price of an agent’s commission. You wouldn't want someone who isn't a doctor performing your surgery, so why try to sell your home on your own when you aren't a real estate agent? Let a Realtor save you time and money.

Buying or selling a home is probably the largest transaction you’ll encounter during your life. You can try to do it alone, but why not hire someone who wants to help you? If you are ready to sell your home and hire an agent to get you the best deal and peace of mind, call me! 936-435-5784
