Thinking of selling your home on your own? Hold that thought! 80% of FSBO (for sale by owner) properties fail and fall off the market. If you’re dedicated to selling your home, hiring an experienced agent (like one of us) is your best bet. Here’s why:

  1. Better pictures. Buyers and their agents are attracted to high quality pictures – they drive more showings and overall make those in the market more drawn towards your home.
  2. Pricing the home correctly. Overpriced homes will reduce buyers’ interest and underpriced homes might lose you money.  Hiring a professional who knows the market will help you get top dollar for your home!
  3. Leveraging the MLS. The MLS (multiple listing service) is an extremely useful tool available to licensed agents that helps get the word out about homes on the market.
  4. Qualifying the buyer. Most FSBOs don’t make sure the buyer is qualified and others drill them too hard. Having an agent will help with all that goes along with the financing process.
  5. Assistance with showings. Buyers don’t want the seller there during showings because it makes them nervous. However, setting up showings through an agent would give them more peace of mind.
