    Selling Your House: Here’s Why You Need A Pro In Your Corner!

    With home prices on the rise and buyer demand still strong, some sellers may be tempted to try to sell their homes on their own rather than using the services of a real estate professional.

    Real estate agents are trained and experienced in negotiation while, in most cases, the seller is not. Sellers must realize that their ability to negotiate will determine whether or not they get the best deal for themselves and their families.

    Here is a list of just some of the people with whom the seller must be prepared to negotiate if they decide to For Sale by Owner (FSBO):
    The buyer, who wants the best deal possible
    The buyer’s agent, who solely represents the best interests of the buyer
    The buyer’s attorney (in some parts of the country)
    The home inspection companies, which work for the buyer and will almost always find some problems with the house
    The termite company, if there are challenges
    The buyer’s lender, if the structure of the mortgage requires the sellers’ participation
    The appraiser, if there is a question of value
    The title company, if there are challenges with certificates of occupancy (CO) or other permits
    The town or municipality, if you need to get the CO permits mentioned above
    The buyer’s buyer, in case there are challenges with the house your buyer is selling

    Bottom Line
    The percentage of sellers who have hired real estate agents to sell their homes has increased steadily over the last 20 years. Let’s get together to discuss all that we can do to make the process of selling your house easier for you.
