SELLING YOUR HOME
SELLING your home is a process which affects your family and your future. To entrust that job to anyone other than a Real Estate Professional could result in the loss of hundreds or thousands of your 'hard earned' dollars. Before you begin this process, you'll want to be sure that you have the most up-to-date information. Information that will allow you to make the best decisions concerning: The best time to sell; How to get the best price for your home; Cost Efficient Renovations which should be made prior to the sale; Determining whether the renovations you are considering BEFORE Selling will substancially increase the Sale Price OR make it more marketable; is the disruption and inconvenience of the renovation to the family worth the possible extra dollars; will the new Buyers agree and pay for your style and taste of renovation; etc, etc.
As Real Estate professionals, we deal with these questions every day and will be able to help you determine which way is best for you!
For Sale by Owner
Most Buyers do NOT feel comfortable viewing homes with the Owner present. Buyers want to communicate freely and confidentially with one another as they view the home. In ' FORE SALE BY OWNER ' situations, there will be many fewer Buyers viewing the home and in the majority of cases Buyers will never proceed to the negotiation stage. The uncertainty of dealing direct is not a comfortable zone for the majority of Buyers shopping for real estate. 'For Sale by Owner' sellers will hear from prospective Buyer that they have a wonderful home and that they will get back to them later. Once the potential client leaves he/she will not call back and the process ends.
It is a known fact that most 'For Sale by Owner' homes are SOLD by Realtors either before they are Listed with Realtors or after the owner gets tired of marketing and Lists the property with a Realtor.
Most Buyers looking to buy from a 'For Sale by Owner' seller, are looking for a bargain! The Seller thinks he/she will get more money because he does not have to 'pay commission' and the Buyer thinks that he/she will be able to buy the home for less money because the Seller does not have to 'pay a commission'. Both Buyer and Seller are competing for the same supposed savings.
The Real Estate Professional filters information to both the Buyer and Seller, working to make the negotiations and transaction a 'Win - Win' situation. In working with a Realtor, most Sellers will yield a higher Net Equity from the sale of their home than if they attempt to sell on their own.
