Why Selling Your House Yourself Is a Mistake

America is filled with do-it-yourselfers who pride themselves on mastering a skill and doing something on their own. It’s part of what makes this country great. But there are some things that are better left to experts. Selling a home is one of those.

While saving money on a real estate commission is a big motivator for people to sell a house on their own, what they don’t realize is that, on average, people who sell their house themselves get less money for the house. In fact, it is about 6% less, which is equal to a typical real estate commission.

So, by selling a house yourself, you end up doing all of the work, yet you make the same as you would make if you let and agent do all the hard work. Plus a real estate agent is trained on the real estate issues that non-agents probably won’t know. Selling a house is a minefield. A real estate agent knows where the mines are located and will steer you around them so you get through the process in one piece.

Leave the selling to an expert and you can focus on getting ready to move into your next great house instead!
