Should You Sell Your Home By Yourself Or Use A Realtor?

Posted by Tom Crimmins Realty on Monday, February 2nd, 2015 at 11:07am.

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 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 you, the seller, the best possible price.

Realtors are also savvy 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. Some times it is not only a sales price that is negotiated. Negotiations can include repairs, improvements, closing dates among many other conditions.

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