Marketing of your home is such an important part in selling your home.  A real estate professional is familiar with the key selling pointsof your home and will place targeted advertising in newspapers, magazines and the local MLS that will focus on the characteristics that can sell your home.

Having your home accessible for showing is a key reason for having a real estate professional list your home. A real estate professional will have the ability to place a lock box on your door so that other real estate professionals can show your home to prospective buyers. This will enhance your chances of having your home sell. You also don’t have to set aside your valuable time to show your home on your own.

Pricing your house appropriately; a real estate professional can assist you in coming up with a sensible price to sell your home.

Your real estate professional is not emotionally attached to your home. They can listen to the critiques about your home and provide you constructive feedback to help with this emotional experience.

The legalities and paperwork involved in selling your home would all be handled by your real estate professional. They will keep all of your necessary paperwork such as disclosures and home inspections readily available as well as handling the negotiations, closing, etc.

Disadvantages of selling by owner:

Industry statistics show that a large number of FSBO homes are not sold by their owners and are eventually turned over to a real estate professional to sell.

Your exposure is limited whereas real estate professionals have access to a database of 1000’s of listed homes that are seen by 1000’s of other real estate professionals.

Selling your home on your own, you have to handle all the paperwork and legalities on your own. If you are not familiar with all the technicalities it is easy to miss items that need to be included in the contract before selling your home.  

Marketing your own home, you may really love an aspect of your home that is really actually not a good selling point and could ultimately deter potential buyers from looking at your home. You may also miss some of the advertising outlets that could potentially bring in more people in the market for a home.

Pricing your own home, you could price it unrealistically high or low which could cost you valuable time and money.
