Going For Sale by Owner sounds great, but nets you less.

– Access to local market data (recent sales, comps and other properties currently for sale).
Important: Studies show that homes priced right when they’re first listed sell more quickly and for a higher price than those that linger on the market.
– Realtors can show your home when you’re not available.
– Get valuable feedback to make adjustments to how the home shows, compares to others for sale and is priced.
– Objectivity from an agent who suggests ways to improve appearance and add value. Sometimes this includes, staging and minor repairs to increase appeal.
– Buyers prefer the Seller to not be present.
– Realtors can screen visitors to your home.
– A professional agent has proven marketing tools available to attract greater buyers to their listing.
– A good agent knows how to negotiate for their Sellers. It’s not only price, but settlement date, municipal inspections, certifications and other instruments needed to bring the home to settlement.
