If you are thinking of selling your own home or perhaps have already started, there are several challenges that lie ahead:

For most people, the real estate transaction is the largest one they ever make and begs the following questions: 
  • Are you prepared to handle all the legal aspects of the transaction, including paperwork?
  • Do you understand the potential liabilities?
  • Is the information you are using to price your home coming from a reliable source? Are you are being misled into believing that the market will support your expectations?
  • Which buyers are most likely to buy your home and how will you reach them?
  • Are you prepared to deal with inquiries and showings at all times that are convenient to buyers?
  • How many “Open Houses” will you hold and what are your chances of generating an offer through these events?

How much will you save? 

  • 85% of “For Sale By Owners” eventually list with a Realtor.
  • 8% either take their home off the market or pay a 2.5% fee to a Realtor representing a buyer.
  • 7% sell their own home.

What can you expect?
  • Make yourself available at all times to answer all inquiries about your home.
  • Be prepared to show your home on a moment’s notice.
  • Buyers will give you positive feedback and leave you wondering why they haven’t submitted an offer.
  • You will receive a lot of inquiries from investors who will give you only verbal offers to test your resolve and motivation. 
  • You will receive written offers from unqualified buyers who don’t stand a chance of getting financing. Eventually they will ask you to finance it for them.
  • You will receive a lot of calls from Realtors looking for business.
  • 95% of buyers rely on Realtors to guide them through the buying process, be prepared to pay at least 2,5% commission or lose the buyer. 
  • Any advertising expenses are paid out of your pocket and are non-refundable.(Realtor fees are paid upon closing, no sale – no expenses.)
  • You will pay more if you pay FSBO fees but end up listing with a Realtor after all.  

 Have you seen Sold by Owner signs? 
  • How much did they sell for? Really? 98% of homes sell below asking price. 
  • What was the total cost of selling, including commissions? 
  • How long did it take?
