4 Signs Its Time to Call a REALTOR®
Thinking of selling your home on your own? There are plenty of online sources that might make it look easy to do, but selling a home is not a simple process. If you are considering selling your home as a FSBO (for sale by owner), here are 4 signs that it might be time to call a professional REALTOR®.
- You don’t know what price: picking the right price to list your home might be one the most important steps in successfully selling your home. If you price it too high, it will sit on the market too long, but if you price it too low, you may leave your hard-earned money on the table. A REALTOR® has access to other home sales, data and factors that influence home values in your neighborhood.
- You are tossing and turning at night: if you are losing sleep over the sale of your home, its time to call at REALTOR®. In fact, not only will you be able to get a good night’s sleep you might just make more money too. According to the National Association of REALTORS® the typical for sale by owner home sold for $185,000 in 2015 and that same home sold for $240,000 with the help of a REALTOR®.
- You think your outdated appliances are vintage: contrary to our favorite reality TV shows, most home buyers are not looking to buy a home with outdated features. They want a home that meets their lifestyle needs, with modern updates that are energy-efficient and stylish. Deciding on what to update in your home is a daunting task, and a costly one. A REALTOR® will be able to advise you on what updates will net you the biggest bang for your buck.
- The word “staging” reminds you of Shakespeare: The National Association of REALTORS® has found that homes which have been professionals staged sell for more. A REALTOR® can help you with furniture placement and decluttering hacks to help showcase your home’s best features. If you need more help, a REALTOR® will be able to connect you with a professional stager that won’t break the bank.
