One question many sellers ask themselves
a home in
is whether they need a realtor or not. If you cruise through
different neighborhoods with houses for sale, you will notice several
signs advertising a home for sale by owner. That often leaves you
thinking that selling your home on your own is the way to go. After
all, it will save you money.
selling your home yourself will save you from paying a realtor’s
commission fee, but it’s not usually worth it.
Realtors Won’t Show Your House to Potential Buyers
you are selling your home without a realtor, the chances of other
realtors showing your home are slim. Most won’t show your home to
their clients because they understand how difficult closing might
become. Homeowners don’t often know the ins and outs of the closing
who do show homes sold by owners often require specific conditions,
including signing a written agreement regarding how much you will pay
the agent. Even if they do help close the sale of your home, they are
not working for you. They are working on behalf of the buyer and will
always have their best interest in mind.
Your Home Is a Full-Time Job
trying to sell your home yourself, you must take care of everything,
including all the potential buyers coming to look at it. You must
also answer all communications about the home. For many of us, this
is not feasible because we have busy lives, plus a full-time job.
