Thinking of selling your home 🏡 on your own since the market is so hot and homes are in such high demand? Seller, beware. Please don’t make the mistake. That would be like giving yourself brain surgery 🥼because you took a nursing class at a local college. In fact, according to the National Association of Realtors, typically, a For Sale By Owner sells for less than the selling price of other homes. For Sale By Owner homes sold at a medium of 217,900 in 2020, and still far lower than the medium selling price of all homes at 242,300. Even worse, if the For Sale By Owner knew the buyer, the price was even lower at 176,700. Homes that were sold with assistance of an agent, sold for a medium price of 295,000. That’s a significant difference.
Hi, I’m Natasha Carroll with Natasha Carroll Realty. Over the years, I’ve seen markets like this that are strong, and so sellers think that hiring a discount broker or by selling their home on their own, will save them money. This can be deadly when selling. There are so many details to consider, and without the experience and knowledge, you don’t even know, what you don’t even know. And obviously, that’s not your fault. You’re not an expert at selling homes. So, we can’t blame you. It is our job to guide you and get you the amount of money you deserve and the best terms so that it is a seamless process. We also know that right now you may be thinking or rolling around the idea of selling but you don’t want to be inconvenienced too much. Well, we’d be happy to jump on a video Zoom call with you if it makes you feel more comfortable where we can give you a more accurate analysis of the value of what you can expect to walk away with if you were to sell. Feel free to reach out to us here, and as always, have an awesome home buying and selling day.
