If you're planning to sell your home, it's probably crossed your mind to try to sell it yourself and save the sale commission. In 2016 For-Sale-By-Owners (FSBO) ended up selling for less than the selling price of other homes: FSBO homes sold at a median of $185,000 (down from $210,000 the year prior), and significantly lower than the median agent-assisted homes at $245,000. - 2016 NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers
If you are seriously considering selling your home without a real estate agent, please read the following about marketing your home. The difference bewtween a home that sells and one that ages on the market all depends on how the property is marketed. There are two approaches to marketing a proeprty.
This approach to marketing is as it sounds - passive. The idea is to to do little marketing and assume the right buyer will find you property and make an offer. Passive marketers do the bare minimum, put your house on the MLS, make a couple flyers, and host an open house. Since this what the average agent and FSBO does, there's little chance that your home will stand out to buyers among all the homes on the market. Does this sound like the best way to market you home and get quickly and for the highest price?
Again, this approach is as it sounds - active! When you become a client of iMetro Property Real Estate Group, we actively market your home. This means we maximize your homes exposure to the market every single day!
