What Does The Effort Really Cost?
Selling your house on your own is a great idea… it could save you some money, yes. But could it cost you too?? This is the last part, of a 3 part discussion, on the advantages of partnering with a Realtor to sell your home.
Part 3: Offers, Negotiations, and Settlement. Here is where a lot could go wrong. How about the documents? What is required? Where will they come from? Who will manage the process? Who will evaluate offers? Who will be the responsible party? There is a lot at risk. That’s why there are Realtors. They have knowledge, tools, relationships, and experience to market the sale from listing to settlement.
Not to mention, Realtors have to adhere to a code of ethics. Legally, there is a great amount of liability on the part of a Realtor. They have been trained how to handle many situations, and above all… they have a unified timetable to keep everything on task, along with making certain that all the correct paperwork is filled out so that nothing will fall through the cracks.
Utilizing a Realtor’s expertise at optimizing marketing, price, and pace of the sale of your home is the surest way to achieve maximum equity preservation. Against the potential costs and risk of a FSBO, a Realtor’s commission is an easily understandable value, and maybe even an investment!
