"I think I'll just sell it on my own...."
Have you ever heard those words from a homeowner who wants to sell her home? I have on more than one occasion, the latest being a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately, her mother is a friend of mine, and asked me to give some advice to her out-of-area daughter, and refer a great agent in her area.
With many areas of California experiencing a strong seller's market, sellers sometimes think they can save money by selling on their own.
What they don't understand is the legal liability, the timing, the negotiating, the difficulty in knowing whether or not a buyer is qualified, what to spend money on when preparing a home to sell and where to draw the line.
KCM (Keeping Current Matters) recently published this infographic which is a good starting place. The list of benefits a good real estate professional brings to the table goes on and on.
I'm happy to report that my friend's daughter has seen the benefit of working with a local Realtor® and has asked me to have the agent call her.
