Why People Sell “For Sale By Owner”
The advancement of technology constantly boosts the market economy and improves our standard of life. However, with an increasingly flexible job market, we are often required to move in order to grow personally and/or continue to develop our professional careers.
All too often, this also means that while we are preparing for this big change in our lives, we also need to sell our homes.
We all know that owning a home is much better and financially wiser than renting. However, when it comes to moving, selling a house might not always be as easy as it seems. While some people consider the convenience and easiness of selling through a realtor the absolute best way to go, others decide that the extra thousands of dollars obtained by selling their house on their own is well worth the time, effort, and trouble that FSBO might imply.
As one may expect, the complex house selling market has its own tips and tricks that people need to respect in order to make the most out of their sale. Let’s see what makes people sell FSBO, as well as the pros and cons of this highly debated practice.
As a conclusion, FSBO might be a great strategy only for good negotiators who have great real estate trading skills, are not in a hurry, and are willing to dedicate a considerable amount of time and work to the process. The FSBO represents a huge responsibility for the owner, as it puts all decisions on his or her shoulders.
However, if you feel up for the challenge and are in search of a new adventurous experience, selling your own house is definitely the way to go.
On the other hand, it is strongly recommended for you to opt for a real estate agent if you find yourself busy, have no time to put in the required research, or cannot afford to take the required time
The same applies if you find it difficult to input the effort to prepare the house for showing, think with dread about the numerous home presentations, or are simply not confident in your negotiating skills.
While some might not have the necessary skills to handle negotiating or the hassle of the paperwork, others might simply value their time enough to choose a real estate agent and the benefits that come with this choice. Whatever you choose, make sure you take the time and consider all details and possibilities.
