Selling Your Home

 

A lot of homeowners are not very familiar with the headache of selling a home. So much so that they often consider selling their home themselves. While this seems like a great idea initially and it would save the homeowner a lot of money of commission, it may be more trouble than it is worth for the homeowner.

 

For Sale By Owner

 

Little do homeowner know that as they place a “For Sale By Owner” sign on their yard, they are opening themselves up to a lot more than what they bargain for. Not only will you be letting complete strangers come into your home, but you will also get constant calls from people who are not serious buyers who will give you very low ball offers.

 

Pricing it Right

 

Without having a realtor, you would not have access to market data and you would not be able to know what homes in the area are selling for, as a result, you risk not pricing your home right. Why does this matter? It makes because you could be selling it for less than it is worth or you may be overvaluing the property. A common mistake that homeowners make is it overprice the property which results in the property staying on the market for too long. The longer your house stays on the market, the more money you lose as you would still be paying your taxes and HOAs.
