Selling Your Home?
Don't Do It Alone
By Dan Fritschen
Paying commission on the money made from selling your home may not seem appealing but just ask the homeowners who had negative experiences doing it themselves. They will most likely tell you that agent commissions are worth every penny.
Examining the Numbers
For starters, let's examine a very important statistic. Nationally, on average, homes represented by real estate agents sell for 16% more than homes which are sold by their owners. If the agent's commission is between 5-6% of the sale, the average seller still makes 10% more than they would on their own.
If you're thinking of selling your home and find yourself on the white picket fence about whether to hire an agent, here are a few more things you should consider.
Setting the Sales Price
To learn more about staging and obtain a quick estimate of what it will cost to get your home in selling condition, visit Remodel or Move. This website contains a free calculator as well as several other great money-saving tips.
Contractual deadlines dictate when everything has to be completed. This includes acceptance of the contract, mortgage approval of the buyer, inspection periods, and title commitments just to name a few. If any of these important deadlines are not met, you may be out of contract and not close.
How to Select a Real Estate Agent
One of the best ways to find a good agent is to ask someone you trust for a referral. Your mortgage professional is a perfect place to begin because they have extensive experience with the agents in your area. They will be able to put you in touch with an agent who will do a great job for you.
Selling a home is an important undertaking. By placing your trust in qualified professionals, not only will you maximize profits, you'll also have a wonderful experience.
