Why do 85% of all Real Estate Transactions
go through a Realtor?

  • Do you really have the time, information, energy, resources and contacts to properly market and sell your home?
  • Have you actually seen the properties that you feel are comparable to your home? If not, how can you be sure your home is properly priced for the current market?
  • Can you truly be objective about the condition and appeal of your home to the buying public? Can you really show your home to a buyer and see things through their eyes?
  • How are you going to get information out to the buyers who may be right for your home? Realtors not only utilize print media, but also have access to all the websites that today's buyer uses to find a home.
  • How can you be sure you're showing your home to a qualified buyer? Realtors only show houses to clients who have been pre-qualified for the price range they are searching in.
  • How can you be sure the person who calls you to look at your home isn't casing it? Realtors have a working realtionship with their clients and have carefully screened them before allowing them into your home.
  • Most buyers who approach a For Sale By Owner assume they can deduct the commission off the top of their offer...so who is actually saving the realtor's fee?
  • Can you truly negotiate with the buyer, unemotionally? Most sellers have a very difficult time removing the emotion in negotiating, especially if they have been in the house for a long period of time.
  • What do you do when the appraiser calls? Do you know how to make sure your home appraises?
  • What are reasonable repair requests? How do you know when the buyer is just trying to renegotiate the price?
  • What is a reasonable deposit from the buyer while he does home inspections and tries to get a mortgage?
  • What if the buyer changes his mind? Can you really keep his deposit?

These are questions a seller must seriously ask themselves when
considering listing their house "For Sale By Owner".

At the very least you need a professional analysis of how much your house is worth.

started on the right foot.
