Why Going FSBO Might Be a Mistake

Thinking about selling your house on your own (“For Sale by Owner” or FSBO)? 😱 Selling yourself means taking on a lot of responsibilities, by yourself – and that can result in a variety of headaches. Here are just a few of them:


😩 Determining the Right Price 😩

Without the data of what comparable homes actually sold for, how long they were on the market, knowing how to evaluate them, and having a solid understanding of the local market conditions… setting a good, market-driven price can pose a significant challenge. Having to adjust for mistakes in price setting can result in your home not getting the number of buyer showings it should (i.e. overpriced), or your leaving money on the table (i.e. underpriced).


😩 Marketing Your Home 😩

Getting maximum exposure for your home is critical, especially in the first weeks of being for sale. From digital marketing, staging, and professional photography, realtors are trained in these areas. I will make sure your home puts its best foot forward and can be seen by the maximum number of buyers.


😩 Open Houses and Showings 😩

When selling on your own, how do you vet potential buyers before just letting them into you home? Are you ready to shoulder the phone calls and inquiries directly?


😩 Negotiations 😩

You may not be comfortable handling all the back-and-forth. When you decide to sell your house, you’re not just on a quest to find a buyer; you’re also stepping into a world of negotiations. You’ll have to coordinate with a bunch of people, including the buyer, the buyer’s agent, the inspection company, the appraiser, and more. It’s a dance where every move counts, and the expertise of a real estate agent can make a world of difference in keeping these negotiations on track and sealing the deal.1


😩 Understanding and Completing Required Paperwork 😩

Selling a house involves a lot of paperwork and legal documentation. There are a lot of rules and regulations to follow, that can make tricky for homeowners to manage on their own. Without a pro by your side, you could end up facing liability risks, legal complications, and closing delays.
