Many people think they can sell their home themselves and just forego the agent commission. Ultimately it's up to you, but today we want to share why doing a For Sale By Owner is not the smartest move.
  • Paperwork: You can hire an attorney to take care of the mountain of paperwork you'll have to sort through, but it will cost you a whole lot more than an agent. Taking care of all the paperwork by yourself will take a whole lot of time, and who has that?
  • Liability: I've been in real estate for about 20 years and have about 1,000 sales under my belt. I've learned a lot in those years, including how to avoid a lawsuit. Liability can come back to hurt you if anything changes in a transaction.
  • Price: You may have done all the research possible to put a price on your home, but online home evaluations will only get you so close to the right number. Pricing your home accurately is of the utmost importance when selling, and the best way to make that happen is with an agent.

These are just a few reasons why selling without the help of an agent can be a risky endeavor. If you have any questions about how to avoid the pitfalls of a For Sale By Owner, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I would love to hear from you!
