When the time comes to sell your home, your first thought is probably, why should I pay an agent to sell my house when I can sell it myself?  For a savvy few, it may be possible, but is it worth it to do a For Sale By Owner (FSBO).

This is my top 5 reasons why you should hire an experienced real estate professional to sell your home and you may think twice before doing it yourself.

1. Legal Risk

Selling a home involves not only purchase contracts, but also many disclosures and escrow paperwork.  Another thing to consider is correctly filling out those forms and executing it so that it is legal and in your best interest.

2. Exposure

When a Realtor list your home, we do not just put up a for sale sign and call it a day. We list and market your home so that every Buyer and Agents will know your home is for sale.

3. Professional Job

This is a professional task and it needs a professional to get the job done right.  When your teeth hurt, you would go to the dentist to get your teeth removed. You can probably pull it out yourself, but wouldn’t that be too risky and painful?

4. Negotiation and knowledge

Realtors know the market and will advise you on the selling price of your home.  As a result, you will get a higher sales price for your home through knowledge of the market and negotiating the best price possible for you.

5. Full Service

You will have more time to spend with your family instead of stressing about learning something new. From the signing of a listing contract to signing the final escrow paperwork and everything in between, we will be there to guide you.

Selling a home is probably one of the biggest thing you will ever sell.  Why sell it yourself and risk making the biggest mistake of your life.  If you have any questions or in need of my service, pleasecontact me today.
