If you’re getting ready to sell your Goldfield Ranch home, you may be thinking you can list For Sale By Owner and save a few bucks. While the cost of not having to pay a realtor their commission out of the sale price of your home is certainly a consideration, there are a couple of things that are less obvious and sort of the “catch 22” here. Let’s discuss these 3 “catches”.
- Marketing – How will you market your Goldfield Ranch home listed FSBO? You must consider that most people looking to buy a home haven’t even heard of Goldfield Ranch. Do you have industry connections in many areas and across many brokers like a Real Estate agent does? An agent who is well connected in their market is important to the success of the sale of your home as this is how other agents learn about your listing. Another huge deal is the realtor has a reputation that buyers may recognize and trust in the industry, thus making them a first place to look for interested buyers. In fact, statically homes listed FSBO on average, sit on the market longer than those listed by a realtor.
- Time – Selling and networking your Goldfied Ranch home will be the main job for the agent you hire. In this day and age, we are all busy. Hiring an agent who selling your home is their job will be beneficial to your home sale. Buyers need constant contact. This, is the job of a good realtor.
- Price – Its a proven fact that homes listed by owner sell for less than with a realtor. Who wants to leave money on the table? Especially if you list with a realtor, you can get more for your home!
