Do I sell My Home Myself or Use A Realtor?

Posted by Thomas Crimmins on Wednesday, May 29th, 2013 at 6:28pm.

People fail to realize that a real estate agent is an experienced , trained, licensed and often seasoned professional. Yes you have to “interview” and hand pick your real estate agent but it is important to have one to guide you and work for you when you are selling your home.

Providing you find a knowledgeable and reputable agent that you feel comfortable with there is no better way to sell your home.

Aside from having all the necessary tools, contacts and needed internet access a realtor knows how to properly market your home to get a seller the best possible price.

Realtors are also savy negotiators. Strong negotiators usually bring much more in the way of final agreed sale price to substantially cover a seller commission and beyond to put more money in your pocket.

So the next time you are thinking of selling your home by yourself as a FSBO (For Sale by Owner) think twice.

At Tom Crimmins Realty we have nothing but top notch seasoned professionals to represent you and guide you through what can be a very stressful home selling process!
