Why You Shouldn’t “For Sale By Owner”


Rising home prices coupled with the current inventory in today's market may cause some homeowners to consider selling their homes on their own (known in the industry as a For Sale By Owner). However, a FSBO might actually cost you money. In fact, our sellers are selling for 10-15% higher than FSBO and are making more even after paying real estate fees.


Here are the top 4 reasons FSBO can cost you a ton of money:


1. You'll Likely Price Your Home Too Low

We're in one of the strongest seller's markets in history. This makes selling your home easy but we consistently see home owners pricing their homes tens of thousands of dollars too low. As professionals, we understand how to take advantage of inventory trends and maximize demand to squeeze every dollar out of your home sale. 


2. Selecting The Right Offer

Almost every home that hits the market right now receives multiple offers. These offers have many different terms from financing to inspection resolution that will affect how much you walk away with from the sale, how long it takes to close, and if the closing will be successful. The hundreds of contracts we negotiate yearly gives us the expertise to ensure you select the offer that gives you the best terms possible.


3. Getting The Most Money Takes A Ton Of Time 

Demand for homes is at an all time high. You're probably already getting many calls from buyers and agents clamoring for more info about your home. In order to get the most money possible, your home needs to be extremely accessible or buyers will move on. Our team is set up to answer and follow up with every inquiry for your home. We also systemize showings to make scheduling as easy possible. 


4. Spending on advertising to generate demand

A professional marketing and advertising plan yields higher prices. We spend $2000 on marketing per listing. Our plan includes professional photos, 3D Interactive tour, drone photography, paid social media advertising, and more. 

Bottom Line

Before you risk losing 10% or more of your home's equity, contact us to see if we can get you more. If it's not a good fit, then no problem. There's absolutely no pressure or fees to schedule a free home sales consultation.
