So you want to sell your home alone?

Posted by: MAAR on Monday, February 6, 2017

Many homeowners think that selling a home alone without the help of a Realtor® will help simplify the process and save them money. The fact of the matter is that selling your home on your own isn't easy.

If you want to sell your home on your own you will have to not only keep your home in show condition, you will also have to be accessible for appointments. Showing your home can be exhausting and you may do the home an injustice if you cannot highlight the positives of the property.

Many sellers lose money when they attempt to sell their home because they don’t know the market value of their home. A Realtor® knows the current market values, whether they are rising and falling and can help you get the most for your home. Many sellers unintentionally under price their home because they do not have a professional helping them, or overprice it, which keeps all of the serious buyers away!

Most buyers that are in the market for a home go with a Realtor®.  80% of buyers work with a Realtor® because the Realtor® has a good reputation and they need help maneuvering the real estate market. If you put a sign in your yard  or on bulletin boards buyers have no idea who they are dealing with. Though a buyer may be able to get a good deal on a home that is for sale by owner they can be leery of working with the owner. 

As you can see, there are a lot of reason to work with a Realtor® instead of trying to sell your home on your own. When you try to take on all of these responsibilities, unfortunately you have a good chance of losing money and increasing your stress.

We like to say that “REALTORS® Mean More” and we work hard every day to prove that to our clients.  If you have questions about River Region Real Estate call a member of the Montgomery Area Association of REALTORS® today.
