It’s the Mount Everest of questions, the big one, the one everyone wonders about, but only a few are so bold to ask.
Drumroll, please…this week’s Frequently Asked Friday question:
Q: If I can sell my house by myself, WHY do I need an agent?
A: You know what? It’s true. You CAN sell your home without an agent. But the better question is SHOULD you sell your home without an agent?
Consider this true scenario for one FSBO couple:
• Saved $9,000 on agent commissions -- sounds great!⠀
• Lost $19,000 on selling price -- sigh.
Sadly, this isn’t uncommon. I see it all the time, and it usually plays out something like this: A seller puts their home up for sale by owner. Then, after weeks or months of frustration, they give me a call to bail them out and get the job done quickly.
Did you know, in fact, that 90% of FSBO FAIL to sell their home without an agent?⠀
If you want maximum profit in minimum time, you need an agent. Statistics show an agent typically gets you 25% more on the sale completely covering agent commissions!
PLUS, you’ll gain an advocate , expert, and cheerleader who’s single goal is looking out for your best interest as you complete one of the largest transactions of your life!
Considering selling by owner? I'd love to talk about the process and answer any questions you may have. Shoot me a message -- I'm here when you're ready!
