One of the reasons why a few sellers want to sell their own homes is because they hired someone simply because they knew them socially, and not because they had interviewed two or three agents to determine competency and fit. And now, after their home didn’t sell, they are fed up with a poor choice, and “By God I’m Gonna Sell It Myself!” (In the end, over 85% of For Sale By Owner homes (FSBO) wind up in the hands of an agent). So, do it right in the first place; interview agents.
It’s in a sellers best interest to interview multiple agents before making their selection. We are talking about the sale of a significant financial asset so it’s worth the effort. Make agents show you the money…a well assembled list of comparable homes to help determine the list price, a written marketing program that gets your home in front of as many people as technically possible, comprehensive staging assistance, and find out, and this is important, if that agent can connect you with every single contractor, service provider, and anyone else you might need to make the sale of your home, and move, smooth, and successful.
Selling your home is more than putting an ad in the paper, and planting sign in your front yard. The process of conducting professional and full service real estate has changed significantly.
