Using A Real Estate Agent Vs FSBO When Selling Your Home

Using A Real Estate Agent Vs FSBO When Selling Your Home

Image title

Is it really worth it to use a Real Estate Agent vs trying to do a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) when you need to sell your home?  Data indicates that YES, it is very much worth it to use a Real Estate Agent!  

Using a Real Estate Professional when selling your home can be beneficial in several different ways! Typically, using a Real Estate Agent will have a higher sales price than doing a FSBO (approximately 20% higher).  Listing with an agent also results in selling your house faster.  FSBO's usually take approximately 19 days longer to sell than houses listed with an Agent.  One of the best benefits of using a Real Estate Agent?  Less stress!  70% of FSBO's have said that they experienced major stress and many difficulties trying to do everything themselves.  FSBO's have to worry about pricing, paperwork and legalities by themselves....on top of marketing their own house, dealing with calls and emails to provide information and schedule showings, and all while dealing with their own day to day lives and jobs. Having a Real Estate Agent handle all of the marketing, showings and legal work for you can truly make the whole experience so much easier.
