selling your home

If you're getting ready to sell your home, you've likely considered the pros and cons of selling it yourself vs. selling with an agent.
Usually, when homeowners attempt to sell a home themselves, they want to save the money they'd have to pay to a real estate agent to do it for them. Does it work? Well, that depends on the seller's level of skill. You can certainly sell your house yourself.
People do it every day, and if you have industry knowledge and experience it may be a good option. It's like anything you choose to do yourself. If you have an aptitude for the work, a few connections here and there and masses of time on your hands, you can start your own profession and save a few bucks.
But saving on the commission won't necessarily save you money. Why? Well, just because you can sell your home yourself doesn't mean you should. Selling a home is real work that requires time and expertise. There are real pitfalls.
An overpriced home languishing on the market, liability, and stranger’s overrunning the weekends and generally wasted time. If this could be you, putting energy into finding the right real estate agent instead of putting up for sale signs will get the job done faster, better and without stress.
