There’s more to selling a home

…than just a for sale sign!

Even if a simple sign in your yard did produce a buyer knocking on your door, how will you handle the following questions?

“How does your home compare to others like it on the market?”

“How did you determine the fair market value of this property?”

“What about financing? Can you help?”

“If I make an offer, who will draw up the paperwork?”

“Why aren’t you using a realtor? Is there something wrong with the property?”

“Since you aren’t using a realtor, we can take their fee right off the top, right?”

Selling your home is one of the most important financial transactions you will make in your life. Don’t take risks. Selling your home is nothing like selling a car. Every home is different. How do your determine the real market value?

The great majority of all homes are sold using a realtor. As professionals, it is our job to help you negotiate with all those buyers who want to offer you as little as possible for your home -not to mention preparing your home for sale, marketing it, and guiding you through the entire process. Make sure you are really ready to handle all of that before placing that sign in your front yard!

Remember: Buyers want to offer you as close to nothing as possible! While that “For Sale By Owner” sign might sound like a good idea, it usually means a different thing to buyers: “Try to steal this one!”
