How to Sell Your Home

Every homeowner has a unique set of needs when it comes to selling a home. Some people excel at getting the word out and meeting with potential buyers. Other homeowners take to the paperwork and marketing like pros. Depending on the strengths a homeowner has, there are several ways to sell a home. Here’s a comparison of three common ways to sell your home: For Sale By Owner (FSBO) For the homeowner who does not mind doing some extra legwork, the FSBO route can save a bundle in agent’s commissions. However, deciding to sell your home without a sales agent can expose you to a lot of pressure. You are responsible for marketing your home, answering potential buyer questions and being available for showings. On top of these tasks, you are responsible for the paperwork that a sales agent usually handles. Good FSBO Candidates: Confidant, Educated, DIY Homeowners Flat Fee MLS ListingsFlat Fee MLS listings are a good choice to augment a FSBO strategy. With a single fee, you can list your home with the REALTORS®‘s MLS, plus one or more local real estate websites. Since most homebuyers work with a buyer’s agent, choosing a flat fee real estate listing service puts your home in front of professional agents who are actively seeking homes. Good Flat Fee MLS Listings Candidates: Any Home Seller without a Seller’s AgentFull Brokerage Service A full brokerage service handles virtually all aspects of a home sale. Marketing, showings, listings, paperwork and other tasks are handled by a professional real estate agent. This top-notch service comes at a price: the agent’s commission. However, if you are unable to spend the extensive time needed to market and sell your home, a full brokerage service may be a good choice. Full Brokerage Service Candidates: Extremely Busy HomeownersWhich way is the best way to sell your home? Take stock of your available time and honestly examine your skills as a salesperson. Once you understand what you are capable of, you can make an informed choice that will allow you to recoup the investment in your home.
