Why For Sale By Owner Properties Are Risky

For Sale By Owner properties are wonderful if you know how to sell a home, but if you have no experience selling homes, you may find it wildly difficult to do on your own.
For starters, you better be prepared to negotiate with a lot of different people. Here is a short list of people that you're going to be cutting deals with: the buyer, the buyer's agent, the buyer's bank, the inspection company, the appraiser, the title company, and the list goes on.
The art of negotiation is a skill that most agents don't practice enough, but we value it highly and want to show you just how skilled we are. We are certified negotiation specialists, and we can get you more money for your home than if you simply sold it yourself.

FSBO sellers will usually market their homes in a local newspaper or on a few other websites, but we list our homes on more than 200 different websites. We can create a much larger buyer pool for you, and when your home is more visible, it will sell for a lot more money. Your home will be put in front of thousands of buyers on the Internet, and this is crucial because 45% of buyers find their homes online.

Another benefit of working with us instead of selling on your own is that we utilize professional real estate photography with SLR cameras and wide angle lenses that capture your home beautifully. If you were selling on your own, I doubt you could showcase your home in such a way. On top of this, we hire a professional stager for your home.
Last but not least, statistics have shown that when you sell your home with a real estate agent, you can get significantly more money. People who sold their home without a real estate agent sell for an average of $184,000 while those people who used a real estate agent sold their homes for $225,000. That's a huge difference!
If you've been thinking of selling on your own because you want to save on commission, then think again. You could be losing out on a lot more than a small commission payment. In fact, Realtors practically pay themselves when they sell for you because they can net such a large amount of money.
