1. Real estate agents save you money (and even net you more)
2. Going FSBO is getting (really) complicated
Home-buying has always involved mountains of paperwork, but that mountain has grown over the last two decades and doesn’t show signs of stopping. Industry regulations have become tighter and tighter, requiring expert knowledge to untangle all the red tape. This is perhaps why people who sell their homes on their own have gone from comprising 19% of the market to just 9% in the last 20 years. Home-sellers are embracing the wisdom of delegation, handing over increasingly complex tasks to experts. Do you have the time or energy to deal with regulations, as well as negotiation with the buyer, the buyer’s agent, the buyer’s attorney, the home inspectors, and the bank? Real estate agents do, and they will have your best interests in mind when entering into negotiation with all these parties on your behalf.
3. Real estate agents know marketing (or they know people who do)
You don’t have to leap into the home selling process alone. Real estate agents have your best interest in mind every step of the way, from staging your home for buyers to wrangling with banks and lawyers and inspectors. Sell with confidence!
