3 Reasons NOT to List Your Home For Sale By Owner


Thinking about selling your home as a FSBO (For Sale By Owner)? Think again! Here are 3 reasons not to list your home as For Sale By Owner.

1.       Negotiations

Once a Buyer is interested in your home and it is under contract, you will be negotiating with the Buyer, the Buyer’s Agent, the Buyer’s bank, the inspection company, the appraiser and the title company. When listing your home as a For Sale By Owner, you do not have an experienced agent working for you who can handle the tricky negotiations that can come up in a real estate transaction. An agent can deal with each negotiation ensuring you have a stress-free transaction so you can focus on your move and finding your next dream home!

2.       Marketing

88% of Buyers search for homes online, while 9% find the home the home they buy through a yard sign and 1% through a newspaper. Most real estate agents have an internet strategy to promote the sale of your home. Minteer Real Estate Team has a comprehensive marketing strategy for each home we list to ensure your home is put in front of the right Buyers and selling your home faster.

3.       Sales Price

Using a real estate agent can net you 13% more than selling on your own. Using comparative market analyses, can accurately price your home getting you the most money on your biggest investment.

Before you decide to take on the challenges of selling your home on your own, set up a meeting with Minteer Real Estate Team, your neighborhood real estate experts, to talk about what we can offer you in the sale of your home.
