When it comes time to sell their home, some people believe that they’re better off doing it on their own. But is it really worth it to list without the help of an agent?
Thanks to the far reach of the internet, most sellers could gain quite a bit of exposure for their listing simply by putting it online. However, marketing is not the only important aspect of a real estate deal.
Between interpreting and managing paperwork, negotiating the best price and terms, and overseeing all the other fine details of a deal, there are many more services an agent provides than simply bringing exposure to a home.
This is exactly why listing for sale by owner (FSBO) can be a poor choice. Unless you can match the experience, knowledge, and resources that a professional agent brings to the table in any deal, the results you’ll see from listing alone will likely be a far cry from what you could have achieved.
Agents also make sure that all offers you review come from pre-qualified buyers. The last thing you want to happen when listing is to get your home under contract and then find out the buyer can’t afford your home.
With all of this in mind, it’s no wonder why working with an agent is well worth it. Partnering with a professional Realtor will help you earn more money and will pave the way for a smoother deal.
