In today’s Real Estate market it’s not uncommon to see for sale by owner signs in front of homes in Orange County because many home sellers think that doing so will save money on their Real Estate Transaction.
If you’re considering selling your home yourself it’s important to think about why you should trust a professional with your Real Estate transaction versus investing your hard earned time and money in selling your home.
A professional Realtor will have the skills to professionally present or stage your home for sale so that once they start showing it to home buyers your home will sell quickly.
One of the hardest parts of selling your home yourself is negotiation, especially when a home buyer finds things that are wrong with your home and they want to submit a lower offer. You can avoid the hassle of negotiation and potentially losing money on the sale of your home by relying on your Realtor to professionally negotiate the sale of your home without you losing tens of thousands of dollars off the sales price of your home. This is where a Realtor really makes their commission. A skilled negotiator should be able to make up the value you are paying them with an increased sales price over a FSBO by getting the seller more money, shifting liability, and making the home as presentable as possible.
Besides selling your home, your Realtor will also schedule appointments with the buyers agents day or night to schedule showings of your home, answer questions both online or over the phone and be willing to alter their schedules and lives so they can sell your home fast.
This step alone will save you time and money because you won’t have to alter your life much during the sale of your home since professional Realtor will be handling all phases of the Real Estate transaction for you.
