For Sale By Owner: Must Watch Before Selling
Are you thinking about selling your home as a for sale by owner? Perhaps you are thinking of selling your home on your own since the market is so hot, and homes are just in such high demand. Please consider all the facts before making that decision.
What Does the NAR Say?
According to the National Association of Realtors, “Typically a person that sells their own home without the assistance of a real estate professional, sells for less than the selling price of other similar homes.”
What Did For Sale By Owner Homes Sell For?
For sale by owner homes sold at a medium price of $217,900 in 2020. Even worse, if that for sale by owner knew the buyer, the price was even lower. Now homes that were sold with the assistance of an agent, sold for a media price of $295,000. That’s a significant difference, and almost $60,000. And that’s after taking out a 6% commission.
Over the years I’ve seen markets like this that are strong. So sellers think that by hiring a discount broker or selling their homes on their own, they’ll save money.
Now, I’m not saying that you can’t do it yourself but there are so many details to consider. And without the experience and knowledge, you don’t know what you don’t know. And obviously, that’s not your fault. You’re not an expert in selling houses.
My team and I have sold over 2,500 homes. We could guide you and help you get you the most amount of money, and the best terms for your situation.
