Sell Your House By Owner or With an Agent?

Sell For Sale by Owner or With an Agent?

Selling your house yourself might sound like a great way to save the real estate commission.

But have you thought about what you will have to do if you take on the selling yourself?

You’ll have to become an advertising expert, a home renovation expert, sales expert, negotiator, legal counsel, mortgage advisor and more. This can be fraught with confusing legal requirements, deadlines and is subject to mistakes that can cost you thousands of dollars.

The truth is that today, only about 9% of homeowners choose to sell their house themselves. Agents make the process much easier and they very often will bring in a higher sales price than if you sold the house on your own. Even after paying a commission, it is very likely that you will net more money from the sale of yoru house than if you sold it yourself.
