Recently I had the pleasure of working with a previous FSBO (for sale by owner). This couple put their house on the market themselves because (just like everyone else who does this) they believed they would be avoiding some costs and therefore walking away with more money in their pocket.
After a month of trying to sell themselves and getting frustrated with people inquiring and not following through, or people making appointments to see the house only to find out they had not even been pre-approved, they enlisted me to get the job done.
After going through the home, staging, and taking professional photos, the house went up for sale on the MLS Wednesday night for MORE then they were trying to sell it themselves. By Saturday we had an offer and Sunday morning another one got sent to us.
The sellers got to negotiate and decide between competing offers and ultimately settled on a deal they were ecstatic about. Now, they get to sit back and relax until its move out time. I did the advertising, ordered a yard sign, held an open house, completed the contracts, filled out the required documents, am arranging the inspection and appraisal and will continue to make sure everything goes smoothly until the keys are exchanged!
The power of having an agent by your side not only gets results, but also is such a less stressful and easy route to go! Let me do the work and get your home sold in a week while you sit back and relax :)
